Recipe by Cucina Casalingo

"Use a slow cooker to make this chili with chicken, pinto beans, and corn, flavored with salsa, cumin, and chili powder."

Top Review by Jules

This is the easiest way to make chicken chili and is particularly good if you happen to have homemade salsa (mine was black bean & corn). I've made this twice now and find that the type of salsa I use determines the thickness of the end product; for a more soupy chili, use two jars of salsa. This even works with frozen chicken breasts; what could be easier!
