Chicken Tortilla Chili (low carb)

Happy Monday! (Womp womp)

But, at least I have this delicious chili recipe!!! Right?!? Right?…..

Oh my gosh and it is so perfect for a cold night like tonight. And for windy fall lunches. Mmm. Fall.


So grab your ingredients, a blanket then enjoy while watching Gilmore Girls non stop on Netflix. Isn’t everyone doing this? Oh, just me? Okay then watch whatever you want!

You will need:
-4 cups of chicken broth (usually one large box at Trader Joe’s equals 4 cups)
-1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
-1 can of roasted diced tomatoes
-2 small cans of diced green chilis
-1 can of white beans
-1 jalapeño gutted and cut up (we omit seeds to keep down on spice)
-1 cup of frozen onion (or freshly chopped onion)
-1 chopped red pepper
-1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
-1/2 cup of sour cream
-1 tablespoon of garlic paste
-2 tablespoons of cumin
-2 tablespoons of your favorite mexican hot sauce
-1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
-1 like for squeezing and garnishing
-Shredded cheese and cilantro for topping, if so desired. (Who doesn’t desire those things? Give me all of the cheese and cilantro.)

Get that slow cooker going on high for four hours.

Add in all ingredients (except chicken if it hasn’t been cooked!)

Stir it all up nice.

You can cheat and use rotisserie chicken if you are short on time and/or are lazy. No judgment here!

If you’re cooking your chicken, lay the thawed chicken breasts out on a greased baking pan.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Massage chicken with garlic salt and cumin.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on how thick your chicken breasts are! Make sure there is no pink inside!

Shred up the chicken and add to your chili!

Cook for 3-4 hours on high.


Demolish immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge to have a deliciously spicy and hearty lunch every day! So perfect.

This is such a healthy, low carb, extremely low sugar meal. It’s perfect for us. And it will be perfect for you.

This is really hard to mess up, so if you want to add anything it will be delicious. If you aren’t worried about carbs, hell, add two more cans of white beans. Or use fat free sour cream. It’s totally customizable. This is just what was absolutely perfect and delicious for us!

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

Go ahead and top it with some cilantro and a squeeze of lime and eat up. I won’t judge you if you add a cup of cheese to your bowl and watch 7 episodes in a row of Gilmore Girls while eating.
