Santa Fe Black Bean and Chicken Chili
Nothing is tastier and more warming than a steaming bowl of chili on a fall or winter day. This chili is chock full of goodness using mostly canned goods from your pantry.
- Slow Cooker
- 1 lb boneless chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1/2 cup diced onions
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 28 oz can diced tomatoes
- 2 cups corn fresh, frozen or canned. Drain if using canned.
- 1-2 15 oz can black beans rinsed and drained
- 14 oz can chicken broth I use "Better than Bouillon"
- 4 oz can chopped green chilies
- 2 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne optional
- Heat the tablespoon of oil in a 10 inch skillet. Add the chopped chicken and onions.
- Cook and stir over medium high heat until chicken is browned.
- Place the chicken and onions in your slow cooker, followed by all the remaining ingredients. Use either 1 or 2 cans of beans. Depends on how much you like beans and how thick you like your chili. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
- Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream and sliced green onions. A little shredded cheddar is never a bad idea. I can't eat chili unless I have cornbread with it. The choice is yours!

This is such a tasty, filling chili that is just perfect for frosty and crisp fall days. Loaded with tender chicken, crunchy bits of corn and soft, toothsome black beans, this one has it all. Just the right amount of spice gives it a little warm kick of flavor. Using pantry ingredients makes this easy peasy. The best part is after browning the chicken you just toss it all in your slow cooker and walk away for the next 5-6 hours. Maybe head outdoors to view some gorgeous fall foliage and when you get back, dinner is ready! Serve this delicious chili topped with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of green onions then dig in!
