There’s nothing like big pot of steaming chili to get you through the winter months. Filling and warming in both taste and temperature.

Yet, while so many of us are sticking to a new years diet, it can be tricky to find a chili recipe that delivers big flavor, without delivering big hips.

Slow Cooker Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Chili Recipe! This healthy chili recipe is loaded with flavor, low in fat, high in fiber, and packed with protein.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast or tenders
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 24 ounces jarred roasted red peppers in juices
  • 30 ounces red kidney beans, drained
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 cups chicken broth

Directions:

  1. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil, followed by the chopped onions, peppers, celery, and garlic. Sauté for 3-5 minutes to soften.
  2. Pour the sautéed veggies and the drained kidney beans in a large slow cooker. Place the chicken over the top, then sprinkle the chili powder, cumin, and salt in the slow cooker.
  3. Pour the jarred roasted red peppers and their juices in a blender. Puree until very smooth. Pour the pureed red pepper and chicken broth in the slow cooker. Cover and turn on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.
  4. When the chicken is cooked through. Remove it with tongs, and shred the chicken with a fork. Stir the shredded chicken back into the crockpot. Serve warm!

NOTE: This chili is well seasoned, but is not spicy. If you want to kick up the heat, add 1-2 teaspoons cayenne pepper. Or add hot sauce after cooking.

    In the crockpot at this moment, it smells great. We have a tomato allergy in the family so this will be the perfect Halloween chili treat!

    Also, probably not necessary, but I actually put the roasted red peppers, chicken broth, and all of the spices in the vitamix together and blended the heck out of them which resulted in a super smooth chili sauce to pour over everything.

    I’m really wanting to make it for a party…do you know what size crockpot this fits in?

    • Toddposted October 31, 2018 at 1:28 pm Reply

      Fits easily in a standard sized crockpot.

    Just made this today and got rave reviews. It was so tasty! I did add a little crushed tomato I had leftover plus some green bell pepper, and left out the beans since we don’t care for them. Will definitely be making this one on a regular basis! Thank you!

    I was too lazy to sautee the veggies first so I just threw it all in the Crock-Pot at once and gave it a quick stir. It was DELICIOUS. Spicy and hearty!

      Hi Whitney,

      Thanks so much for reporting back! I’m so glad you liked it!! :)

    Made this for dinner and it was so flavorful. However, after looking at the ingredients today I realize that I forgot to add the 2 cups of chicken broth, ooppps. I couldn’t tell anything was missing and it still had plenty of liquid. So a good foolproof meal.

    Could you prep this ahead and make into a freezer dump bag?
