A Simple and Delicious Comfort Meal

Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Chili Recipe

Nothing’s better on a cold winter day than snuggling up on the couch with a fuzzy blanket and a good book.  Today we’ve spent the day hanging out in our PJs relaxing and playing indoors– it’s so cold and rainy outside– I have ZERO desire to go anywhere today!

The kids snuggled up with blankets and their bean bag chairs watching movies all day while I lounged behind them finishing up a book that I’ve seriously been trying to find time to finish for the last 6 months!  Days like this come so seldom and are a true luxury compared to my busy non-stop mommy days….even the kids were mellow today!  Sometimes it’s nice to just sit and be with each other for a day…no worrying about what time it is…no schedules to follow….etc.  So I don’t want to break up this peaceful harmony by spending a ton of time in the kitchen making dinner.

Luckily, I went shopping earlier this weekend at Walmart and picked up everything I needed including RO*TEL tomatoes and Hunt’s diced tomatoes to make this Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Chili Recipe.  It’s the perfect comfort food recipe….the whole family loves it and it takes me less than 10 minutes to throw it all together!

I especially love to grab a few baking potatoes from the produce section to cook along in the slow cooker— the chicken chili is so delicious poured over a baked potato…mmmmmmm!


Here’s a neat kitchen hack– use a disposable tin pie pan to place on top of your chili so that your potatoes can bake separately on top of the slow cooker and they won’t get overly soggy being down in all of the juices.  I also like to drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle a bit of sea salt over the potatoes to add a little bit of flavor.
