Chicken Taco Chili Trial: Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Nut-free

December 14, 2012

I’ve had this Chicken Taco Chili from Photo a Day pinned on Pinterest for awhile, so I’m glad that I finally got around to making it.

The Changes

This recipe is already Joseph-safe, so I didn’t make any changes

Chicken Taco Chili

Adapted from Skinny Taste

Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Nut-free


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 16-oz can black beans
  • 1 16-oz can kidney beans
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes with chilies
  • 2 Tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Combine all ingredients except chicken in a large crockpot. Top with chicken. Cook on high for 6 hours. Shred chicken, stir to mix it in, and serve.

Makes 6 servings

What I Thought

This recipe was nice. The spiciness was quite mild, which was good for our wimpy tastebuds. It could have used more salt, probably due to the fact that I used less taco seasoning than it called for. My daughter refused to touch it, and Joseph only wanted to eat the “soup chicken”

    This sounds good! I’d probably have to make it a bit spicier though 😉 I have a chili recipe that’s gluten-free and free of the top 8 allergens if you’re interested. It uses only 1 pot and it takes about 25 minutes to make. I’m not sure if there’s anything else in it that’s not safe for Joseph though … but I make it all the time because it’s so quick and easy and won’t kill me 🙂

      My main problem with Joseph-safe chilis is that I prefer a white chili, which are usually loaded with dairy. Thanks for the offer though.
