Chicken Taco Chili

This. is. so. good. 

 It's probably the easiest lunch I have ever tossed together and it is definitely going on the lunch rotation for work.

. taco

I actually prepared this in the morning while coffee was brewing, it's that easy.  If I had to cook chicken it would obviously take longer but as it happened, I had some handy so I diced it into chunks.
You toss it all in one pot to heat.  If you wanted a vegetarian version I'm sure you could use tofu as tofu absorbs the flavors of other ingredients.


Tortilla chips can be used to scoop this chili if you like eating it as a dip.


Chicken Taco Chili

1 can of red beans or pinto beans
1 package of taco seasoning mix
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
2 cups diced chicken, cooked
1 10 oz can green chilies (do not drain)
1 cup broth
tortilla chips, shredded cheese and sour cream

In a 4 quart dutch oven combine all ingredients except the tortilla chips and sour cream, mixing well.  Cook over medium heat 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.  Stir occasionally.  To serve place crushed tortilla chips in the bottom of the bowl and top with soup.  Top with sour cream.

Nice flavors! I make something like that, sometimes with black beans, sometimes with both corn & beans, sometimes with fried onions too. Sometimes I use just vegetables, no chicken OR tofu. I cook it a little longer to let spices blend in, but if you are keeping it in a thermos for a later lunch, I guess it has the same effect.

Mae, thanks for the new ideas to change this up a bit. I almost added corn and I will certainly add onions next time.

Being vegetarian tofu would work for me in this delicious looking recipe. I love melted cheese on top,,

It looks really good. I have been craving chili lately so it is probably time to put it in the soup rotation. ;-)

Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

It's good to get back to posting about food after a short break. Next year I will be getting a flu shot; this bout knocked me for a loop...
