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.

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.
