Ingredients
  1. 1 cup of quinoa, rinsed
  2. 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes work too
  3. 14 oz can Rotel
  4. 16 oz cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
  5. 15 oz can of corn, drained
  6. 3 cups chicken stock
  7. 2 chicken breasts, thawed
  8. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  9. 2 teaspoons cumin
  10. 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  11. 2 teaspoons chili powder
  12. Toppings + sides: shredded cheese, sour cream, avocado slices, chips and/or corn bread
Instructions
  1. This recipe is beyond simple. See all those ingredients up there - dump them all into a slow cooker and gently mix. Cook on low for 4-5 hours.
  2. With tongs, remove the chicken, place on on a large cutting board and shred with forks. Put the shredded chicken back in the slow cooker and cook for another hour on low.
  3. Spoon into a large soup bowl and top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and avocado slices if you want. Dip tortilla chips in your chili or have a side of buttered corn bread instead. Both are fabulous sides!
