Perfect Fall Recipe

I recently saw Jill post something about a "skinny chili" recipe from Skinny Taste

I figured with the cooler weather, it would be the perfect weekend to throw everything in the crockpot and try this recipe!

I am so glad that I did. 


And easy, too! Which is perfect for my crazy schedule during the week. 

You just throw everything into the crock pot, and then put the chicken on top. With about 30 minutes left, you take the chicken out and shred it. 

I cheated and had some jalapeño tortilla chips with my soup today at lunch. AH-MAZING!

Here's the link to the Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

    1. I have another good recipe for you! It is taco soup! It uses beef and is less "hearty" than this one, so it is different...but similar ;)

    2. My favorite Skinny Taste recipe is the Santa Fe Chicken! I'll have to try this one now too...Love that site!

    3. I JUST made this on Sunday - twins! :) Love your blog and sweet Perry!
