We're enjoying this beautiful winter/spring/not-summer weather here in Arizona, which means we're using our slow cooker at least a few times a week. This queso chicken chili is a new twist on the taco soup we usually have. The kids love it and I think yours will, too! Jenelle has been on a major cooking kick lately and is really liking the slow cooker because we can just dump it and forget it. Easy peasy.

If you're counting points, this recipe will serve 8 and has 1 point each serving. It's actually less than 1 point but I like to round up to stay accountable.

Queso Chicken Chili | Crock Pot Recipe

Whether you're creating a classic chili recipe or something more unique like this Chicken Queso Chili, S&W Beans have you covered. S&W Beans have been around for over 120 years. Better meals start with a better bean! I used Garbanzo beans in this recipe just to see how they'd turn out, but you can definitely use black beans if you prefer.

I love using S&W Beans because incorporating canned goods into healthy meals just makes sense when you're a single mom with three growing tweens/teens! Find more S&W Beans recipes and grab a coupon here!

garbanzo bean chili recipe

Dump all ingredients except shredded cheese in the Crock Pot. Cover with lid and cook on high for about 2 hours (or low for 3-4 hours).

Before serving stir in shredded cheese.

NOTES: If your chicken isn't cut up ahead of time, you'll need to cook it a bit longer and shred before serving. I like to keep pre-made chicken on hand so meals like these don't take long at all. Also, you can use MORE fat-free cheese (it serves 8 so you could use up to 2 cups) without adding points.

  1. I made this last night and my ENTIRE family loved it. Even my insanely picky 3 year old! I actually used 1/2 a cup of left over black beans I had in the fridge, a can of Navy beans because I didn’t have any chickpeas on hand and added a can of pinto beans as well! I used 6oz of neufchatel cheese and a cup of Kraft 2% Mexican blend cheese. The servings were a little over a cup and a 1/4 and still 3 points each! I made sure in the recipe builder in my WW app. We crumbled a few tortilla chips on top and it was a hit!!! Thank you for sharing!!! I’ll definitely be making this again!

  2. Tried this tonight, and it was delicious!

  3. Fantastic! I used medium salsa so it’s got a little zip – absolutely delicious! :)
