It’s my favorite time of the year again: Fall!
But this time of year can also encourage us to eat way too much and cause us to gain weight (a not-so-fun part about the holidays).
That’s why I love to find healthy (yet yummy and hearty) meals for the fall time. We can splurge on a few scones during the day if our dinner is healthy. 😉
Add to that a freezer cooking meal, and this is my favorite fall recipe!
Freezer Crockpot Mexican Chicken Chili
1 shredded rotisserie chicken or 3 cups shredded chicken breasts
2 cups black beans (or 1 15oz can)
2 cups pinto beans (or 1 15oz can)
1 cup frozen corn
2-4 chopped zucchini (I LOVE zucchini so I put a ton in)
5 cups chicken broth
2 cups chunky salsa (mild or hot depending on taste)
1 8oz can tomato sauce
Combine ingredients in the crock pot and cook for 7-8 hours on low.
If you want to make this ahead of time, simply combine all ingredients into a gallon freezer bag. When you are ready to cook it, thaw it in the fridge, throw it in the crock pot, and cook for 7-8 hours on low!
I’m off to make a batch of this right now (and some pumpkin scones)! What’s in your crock pot?
