I have decided to take a break from all the sweets to bring you this deliciously comforting taco ranch chicken chili. More desserts coming tomorrow but today it’s an easy dinner recipe for you all.

I just love a meal that you can literally dump into the crock pot (or slow cooker) in the morning and then when you come home that evening or afternoon, that aroma just fills the house. It’s literally one of my most favorites things ever. Nothing makes a place feel like home more than that smell of dinner cooking away in the kitchen.

 This taco ranch chicken chili is the perfect set it and forget it type of meal. Dump a few cans into the slow cooker along with some chicken breasts and seasoning packets. Let it cook all day and that’s it!

No fuss. No pre cooking. No fancy stuff. Just easy, simple, homemade goodness.

I’ve been debating for a few weeks on whether or not I should post this because I could not decide what to call it. Is it soup? Chili? It’s kind of in between and since I love me some chili, I went with that.

With that said, this is in between a thicker chili and a soup. Just be sure that you load it up with all your favorites; we love sour cream, avocado slices, shredded cheese, and some cilantro. You could also use guacamole, jalapenos for some heat, green onions, etc.

The recipe as is, is not spicy, it’s flavorful. If you want spicy heat then use a can of Rotel instead of the regular diced tomatoes. Or, simply add a can of diced green chilies into the slow cooker with everything. 

I have made this with low-sodium chicken broth and regular chicken broth and I have to say that I thought it was a tad bit too salty with the regular chicken broth which is why I specify low-sodium chicken broth in the recipe. If you like more salt content then use the regular, full-salt chicken broth.

If you love recipes like this one, then you will also love this taco soup, this cheesy taco soup or 7 can chicken taco soup. All are reader favorites on the blog.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can chili beans, DO NOT drain
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes, DO NOT drain
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning mix

Instructions

  • Place chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together.
  • Let cook on low for 6-8 hours (I let mine cook all day for 8 hours)
  • About 1 hour before end of cook time, take out the chicken and shred with 2 forks. You could also just shred the chicken inside the crock pot if wanted. Add the shredded chicken back in and let cook for the remaining 1 hour.

Notes

For more spicy heat, add a can of diced green chilies and/or use a can of Rotel tomatoes.

The cans are all the standard sized cans, 15-16 oz each.

      December 19, 2017 at 12:35 pm 1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth is about 1 cup + 3/4 cup. Since you are using a carton, you can always less or more depending on preference :) Enjoy!

    January 6, 2018 at 4:31 pm I've tried this recipe several times in the past and it's always a big hit in my home! I was wondering if this would be a good meal to meal prep and freeze in gallon ziploc bags?

      January 14, 2018 at 12:01 pm Yes, I think it would work really well to freeze. You may have to reheat it with some additional water or chicken broth.
