Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Stew


Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Stew

Introduction

I love this stew! It is so easy and leaves me feeling satisfied. I use 3/4 cup as a serving. If it is too spicy for you, substitute a can of diced tomatoes for one of the diced tomatoes w/chilies.

    Excellent! I will make it again. Quick note though, when I measured out 1 cup servings it only came out to 8 servings, so I am having to go redo the nutritional information so it comes out correctly. - 2/13/09

    Great tasting recipe. Made a few changes to go lower salt though. Use whole tomatoes just cut them up,rinse the beans from the cans, use low salt taco seasoning and cut the amount in half, i threw in cut up fresh whole mushrooms, and use 100% whole wheat pitas to dip. Cut them into triangles. - 1/19/09

    I didn't even slow cook this. I had rock-hard frozen chicken breasts. I put the chicken pieces and onions in a skillet. Put the canned stuff and taco seasoning in another pot to heat. By the time it was bubbling, the chicken was cooked. I cut it up and dumped it all together. Yum with sour cream!! - 2/6/09

    My husband LOVED this recipe. I was expecting more "taco" flavor so I might use more seasoning next time, but a reduced salt version, this was salty enough as it is! I would also recommend the longer cooking time as I did 3.5 hours on high and my onions were still crunchy (which I'm not a fan of). - 2/5/09

    Instead of the taco seasoning, I used another recipe for taco seasoning on here to cut the sodium down quite a bit (to 347 mg). It tasted like it needed salt, but it was still very good. Even my 14 month old gobbled it up, and that's unheard of! Will def. be on our rotation of healthy meals! - 1/18/09
