Corn and black beans give this satisfying chili Mexican flair the whole family will love. Adjust the cayenne if you have small children or are looking for a little less zip. —Stephanie Rabbitt-Schappacher, West Chester, Ohio

"Really flavorful! Forgot to get green chiles while shopping & still tasted great. Save yourself a step & put chicken in slow cooker whole without browning, then shred it once done cooking.

"Excellent, easy recipe for busy families! I like to use Rotel, a rotisserie chicken, 1/2 a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning & add a block of Philadelphia cream cheese. The broth is amazing!"

"I actually made this in a dutch oven instead of the crockpot and it was delicious. I thought the heat was perfect, but my boyfriend says I could have kicked it up a notch. Next time I will add some pinto beans to give it more substance. Really good recipe with some cheese and sour cream on top!"

"I love this recipe. It is so delicious and filling. Like other quotes, you can tweek to how you like. I use Rotel diced with lime and the other original mild. It adds flavor without the cayenne. Also I like to add 1 medium chopped zucchini during the last hour so they dont get mushy but add a little crunch. I always get rave reviews for the original recipe and whatever way it is tweeked. You will love this recipe. Thanks for posting it."
