Are you a football watcher? I’m not. But the past couple of seasons, I’ve been aaaaaall up in the 49-ers grill. On account of…it’s all because…as the result of…the reason for it is…ah heck, it’s because of Kaepernick. Kaeperyum used to be the quarterback for UNR, which is where I went to college. I feel prideful. It doesn’t hurt that his larger-than-life arms are all tatted up like a tricked out renegade. #TeamKaepernick.

What was I talking about? The gun show? Oh. Chili. Right. SO! I made this crock pot shredded chicken chili and took it with me to watch the 49ers/Packers game with the ladies a couple weeks back. There was beer and chili and Brussels sprouts (that’s not a lie…Brussels were present. They have a standing invitation), and we jibber jabbered, all cozy warm-like with our chicken chili while the man stallions did the football thing in below freezing weather.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to your crock pot in the order listed, ensuring the chicken is submerged in liquid. Stir everything well
  2. Secure the lid, place your crock pot on the low setting, and allow it to cook for 8 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from crock pot and place on a cutting board. Use two forks to shred the meat and place meat back into the crock pot (discarding any bones if using bone-in chicken). For best results, allow chili to sit another 15 minutes (or even overnight) to allow chicken to absorb more flavor.
  4. Serve chili with grated cheese, fresh cilantro, chives, and your other favorite chili toppings.

Notes

*I used a red, a green, and a yellow
**You can replace the chicken pieces with 2 to 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts…but why would you do that?
