This Slow Cooker Chunky Chicken Chili Recipe is spicy and it adds some good heat! I kind-of-sort-of love that it's bean-less!
Some people don't like beans but like chili, but you can always add some kidney beans while it is cooking! And don't be afraid to add a dollop of sour cream if that's how you like your chili.

Slow Cooker Chunky Chicken Chili Recipe
Hey y'all I'm back with another easy slow cooker recipe! This recipe is a Chunky Chicken Chili Recipe that will totally knock your socks off! I'm bringing you a little taste of Texas with this meal.
They say everything is Bigger and Better in Texas, and this recipe is definitely hearty and hits the spot when you are craving chili! This recipe is actually bean-less which I personally like because sometimes eating beans makes you feel bloated, or gassy.
This recipe actually calls for hominy. Hominy is rarely used in recipes from what I have seen, I really don't know why but I love the texture it brings. It is not too hard or soft, it has a really cool texture to it.
It's the perfect replacement for beans, although you can always add beans to this recipe if you'd like.
This is a bit spicy as most chili recipes are, but not too spicy to where your mouth is on fire. The chicken and hominy absorb some of the spices and with the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, it is a nice even blend of flavors.

Why we love this Slow Cooker Chunky Chicken Chili Recipe
This recipe actually serves 4 hearty portions which is perfect for a quaint get together with friends or a few family members. I decided to cook this recipe for my daughter Angeline, myself and two of her closest friends. Her friends were about to embark on a funtastic journey to Texas the following week.
As they are younger, they were a bit scared and didn't know what to expect. Angeline asked if I would be so kind as to give them the 411 about Texas, where to go, things to do - basically all the in's and outs. Have I mentioned just how much I LOVE TEXAS?
I knew this would take a minimum of 7 hours to cook, so that gave me plenty of time to clean the house, feed the pets and gather all my photos of Texas and past travel spots to show the gals. I also went ahead and made a playlist of some country music to play just to set the mood and ease their nerves.
As hours passed by dinner was ready to go, and Angeline called and said she was on her way...hooray! The girls arrived and looked a bit timid so I popped the music on and served up this delicious Slow Cooker Chunky Chili meal.
As we ate I showed them the photos and filled them in on my favorite spots and must see places. The girls absolutely LOVED this recipe, the sides and music and I could tell they were a lot more at ease about going to Texas.
The frozen virgin margaritas really went well with the spiciness of the chili and each bite of the chili was so flavorful and scrumptious. What a fun night it was! I hope you bring a little bit of Texas to your home and share this recipe with others as I have.
How to Make this Slow Cooker Chunky Chicken Chili Recipe
This recipe was super easy and also super expensive. I went to the store, grabbed the ingredients and some fresh bread and small frozen bag of corn on the cob to serve along with it. The actual recipe only cost me about $8! I went back home to prepare it, which took a whopping 5 minutes tops.
