It’s November. So in theory, it’s time for fall food. Stews, soups, chili. Fall really is my favorite food season of the year (don’t even get me started on how much I love Thanksgiving!)

This year has been a weird year though. Hubby and I spent last weekend soaking up as much sunshine as we could. The highs both days were in the upper 70s and we even hit the low 80s. And even yesterday, we went downtown to vote early and it was 81 out. On November 2. Unreal.

But today we’re back to more seasonal temperatures, which makes me want all those delicious, stick-to-your-ribs kind of foods. Enter this crockpot chicken chili. It really is easy. And tasty. What more could you want?

I topped ours with some fresh avocado and cilantro – two of my favorite ingredients. Speaking of cilantro, I’m sure you’re all aware that there are people who HATE it. We all know someone like that. In fact, my sister hates cilantro.

For some reason, I was recently parusing the website ihatecilantro.com and came across their haiku page. Now, I hated writing haikus in high school english class, but I found these haikus about hatred towards cilantro pretty freaking hilarious. Check them out if you need a chuckle.

    I am obsessed with your crockpot chicken tacos and am sure this is going to be another favorite crockpot chicken recipe in our house!

    P.S. I had a cake craving last night and jumped on your blog to look up cupcake recipes… you have 101 cupcake recipes?!!

      Yea… about those cupcakes. I went through a phase at the beginning of my blog. And I’ve been blogging 3.5 years, so that’s really only about 30/year…

    Sounds delicious, but I’m sure I’d have to just add one of those chiles 🙂

    Nothing bad about pulled chicken. Nothing. Love all the flavors that the chicken was simmering in. Bet this was awesome!

    Has anyone tried freezing this? I dont eat meat, but I am thinking about making this for my husband but there is no way he could eat a whole pot to himself.

    • beantownbaker — May 7th, 2012 @ 10:10 am

      Like most crockpot meals, this meat freezes just fine. I like to portion it out into individual sized portions prior to freezing so you can just grab one and go.

    Hi! I made this last year and it was a huge hit. I want to make it again for a holiday pot luck, but when I looked at the recipe today, it seemed to have the directions listed twice, and no ingredient amounts. I was able to find the recipe at eating Well, but wanted to let you know that there may be something wrong here.

      Thanks for the update. I am fixing the post now. Glad this recipe was a success for you!
