Tip for One pot tex mex chicken chili recipe:

One of my favorite time saving tips is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions for this chili.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep and I also do this same for green bell pepper.  It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen!

You can also make this Mexican chicken chili in the crock pot!

This recipe can easily be made in your slow cooker. Just throw it all in the crock pot for an easy crock pot meal.

We often make this chili in the slow cooker on busy days. It is so nice coming home to dinner waiting.

We love our crockpot! If you need a new one, there are some really good ones on sale right now.

If you work all day, you may want to invest in a programmable crockpot. They are awesome because you can set them to start later, or to stop and switch to warm once the dinners are ready. Amazon has some on sale right now too.

I also really like this crockpot.  Now, it’s not programmable but it’s so handy! It has the feature where you can lock the lid down.

That feature is so nice for when you take meals to potlucks or need to transport the meal somewhere.

Now if you want to save yourself even more time then I really recommend these Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze.

Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up.

  1. Can you give the amount of chicken by weight? Also, what sizes are the canned items? Canned beans and tomato sauce can be purchased in multiple sizes. Thanks.

  2. It’s approximately 2.5-3 pounds of chicken and the canned items are 10 oz cans for the tomato items and 16 oz cans on the beans. Thank you.
