  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 14 oz low-sodium chicken broth one can
  • 1 onion medium chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper minced - optional
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed or minced
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Part Two

  • 48 oz Northern Beans precooked a large jar
  • 4 oz diced green chilis a small can


  • Trim two skinless boneless chicken breast.
  • Chop one medium onion and one jalapeno.
  • Mix everything but the beans and green chilis in a crock pot. Add the chicken.
  • Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours on high. Double time if on low.
  • Remove the chicken from the crock pot and shred.
  • Return the chicken to the crock pot.
  • Add the green chilis and the beans. See notes about rinsing beans.
  • Mix well and cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 more hours on high.


Pro Tips:

  1. The crock pot can be 3 1/2 qt minimum, but bigger is ok.
  2. If your crock pot runs hot, use the short times. Normal crock pots are fine at the suggested times.
  3. I have the recipe written for cooking on high. Double times if using low.
  4. To decrease the sodium, rinse the beans and add one cup of water to replace the liquid. Also, decrease or skip the salt.
  5. The model recipe used only 1/2 teaspoon paprika. 1 teaspoon is ok but I like 2 teaspoons more.
  6. Good in the refrigerator for 3-4 days and freezes well for 3-4 months.
  7. A serving is a little under 1 1/2 cups so a nice serving size.
  8. Heat note: this has some heat in it so adjust to your taste.
