hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Before I even begin this post, I have to make a HUGE disclaimer… I am SO not a food blogger.  In fact, as I tried to take pictures of food I was laughing hysterically at myself and how clueless I was!  However, I do entertain a LOT and have 4 kids to feed and this recipe rocks! So if you can get past the poor styling and silly pictures, then read on and enjoy one awesome recipe!!
A few reasons why this recipe is awesome…
1- My kids all eat it!
2- Zero dishes- only the crockpot needs to be cleaned after!
3- It takes about 5 minutes to prepare!
This recipe comes directly from one of my best friends, Jen!
Thanks for letting me share it with the world!
Okay, now onto the recipe!
Crockpot Chicken Chili
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 small can black beans
1 small can tomato paste
1 package boneless skinless chicken tenderloins or thighs
(these two cuts get the most tender and fall apart)
1 packet McCormick chili seasoning
Dump (yes, that’s the technical term) all the ingredients into your crockpot (don’t drain anything) and cook on high for about 4 hours or on low for 6-8.  Both times work well, it just depends on how much time you have before you plan to eat.
(sorry for the raw chicken pic- I know it’s kinda gross- see, not a food blogger!)
Once the time is up, shred the chicken using two forks, stir, and serve!
We like to garnish with cheese, sour cream, and Fritos!
This is one of our favorite fall recipes! 
Try it out and let me know what you think! 


And if you think it sounds good- we’d love you to Pin this baby! Thanks!

  1. I don’t quite get people that can’t touch raw food or think its “gross”. If it’s “gross” before its cooked, isn’t it just as “gross” to eat it cooked?

    I understand perfectly about not being a food blogger. I am not much of a food “cooker” myself, but this looks like something I may be able to handle. Even having said that, I can come up with two questions about this “easy” recipe. 1) Do you really not stir the ingredients after they are placed in the slow cooker? (I have a feeling that was all about the photo op) and 2) What the heck is floating around the top in those final two pictures? It almost looks like broken up spaghetti pieces, or even a piece of artichoke?

    I could watch Scdhniler’s List and still be happy after reading this.
