Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili: best comfort food and it's made in the crockpot!

I can’t help myself. A second chili recipe in two weeks. But before you all blast me with your “I thought this was a dessert blog emails” please understand. It’s freaking cold here in Chicago. And my family has to eat. More than cookies. And cake.

Plus, this dinner is so easy and delicious you’re going to blast me with your “Aimee you’re a dinner genius emails.” Don’t worry. I won’t sit by my computer waiting for those emails.

Here’s what I love about cooking in the crockpot: I can toss is a bunch of ingredients, and there’s a 90% chance it’s going to taste amazing. Partly because I haven’t had to slave in the kitchen (easy food tastes better, it’s a fact), and partly because chili and soup in the crockpot is always amazing.

But there is a key to amazing food in the crockpot. YOU HAVE TO SEASON IT. You can’t just toss in meat and veggies and expect delicious food. It’s going to be bland. It’s why some people see “slow cooker or crockpot” in the name of a recipe and think “ugh, that’s bland.”

It’s not bland if you season your food. K?

And speaking of seasoning, have you all started making your own taco seasoning yet? No? You should. It’s so easy. Keep a small mason jar in your cabinet at all times people. ALL TIMES.

So tell me, what’s your favorite meal in your slow cooker? If you scroll down below past the recipe, you’ll see I have shared a few of my favorites! ENJOY!

    I agree – seasoning is key to good crockpot food. There aren’t many dishes where some caramelized onions wouldn’t be a good idea, either.
