Chicken Quinoa Chili

I found the original recipe on Pinterest. I didn’t need to make such a big pot, so I halved it & made a few tweaks. You can find the original recipe here:

This recipe would be really easy to make vegan. Eliminate the chicken & use veggie broth.


1 boneless skinless chicken breast

1 can chicken broth

8 oz tomato sauce

10 oz Rotel tomatoes

1 can black beans, rinsed & drained

3/4 cup frozen corn

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup quinoa

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon red pepper

Put everything in your crock pot. Cook on low for about 6 hours. Remove chicken, shred, & return to crock pot.

Serve with shredded cheese & guacamole.


1 ripe avacado, peeled, seeded, & sliced

1 roma tomato, chopped

1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic, minced

2 tablespoons lemon juice

salt, to taste

onion powder, to taste

Put ingredients in food processor & blend until smooth.
