chicken taco chili ~ slow cooker

very delicious indeed.  as a mom, i'm always thrilled when i come across a slow cooker meal that everyone enjoys.  starting dinner in the morning and then not having to worry about it until it's time to eat is my favorite way to feed my family.  

we had this over short grain brown rice (lundberg) which i had in the rice cooker set on a timer so it would start cooking in time to be finished when the chili was ready.

I'm not a cook, but I love your recipes...because I could probably cook them, and because they're so full of great nutrition (and ingredients I have and can pronounce). Thanks!
