Crockpot Chicken Chili



Crockpot meals are an all time favorite for me, especially as a new mom. Throw in all the ingredients and let the crockpot so all the work! Delicious meal and leftovers to boot!


1.5# organic chicken breasts or thighs (add whole, shred once cooked)

1 jar (16 oz) organic salsa

1 can black beans (do not drain)

1 can pinto beans (do not drain)

2 tsp. ground cumin

2 tsp. chili powder


Sliced avocado

Fresh cilantro


1. Add all ingredients to crockpot (juice and all from canned beans).

2. Cover and set to low and cook for 5-7 hours.

3. Remove chicken from crockpot, shred and return to crockpot, stir then serve.

4. Taste and season with more salt if needed.

5. Enjoy!

Yield: 7 cups

3-Ingredient Protein Balls


I made this on a whim and they tasted amazing! I was lazy about it and mixed everything together in this bowl and once I rolled them into balls, stored them in the very same container so why wash it until they were all gone! #timesaver Photobomb by my daughter’s new portable snack holder! These would fit in here very nicely. She’s a little too young too eat these at the moment but she’s getting in her first 4 teeth right now so it’s won’t be too long before she’s eating my homemade protein balls.

3-Ingredients Protein Balls


1/2 cup quick oats

1/4 cup sunbutter

1 T. cacao powder

2 T. water

optional, 1 T. maple syrup for added sweetness ( I did not add extra sweetener this time because Sunbutter already has sweetener in it.)


  1. Stir together all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Scoop by the Tablespoon and roll into balls. I mixed in this bowl then covered and stored in it as well. Saved a few dishes!
  3. Enjoy!

Yield: 8 protein balls
