Slow Cooker Black Bean Chicken Chili
With fall right around the corner, it’s a good idea to start curating those cold weather comfort foods that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Slow cooker black bean chicken chili is one way I like to change up an old classic!
The chicken soaks up all the yummy juices that come together as it slowly simmers all day long, and it’s pretty much fall-apart-tender by the time it’s done.
I like to pair my black bean chicken chili with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of freshly chopped green onions. My husband likes to add shredded cheese and a few shakes of hot sauce. The great thing about chili, in general, is that it’s flexible like that.
Yummmmmm!!!! I can’t wait to make it again!
