I did it again! I took what I had on-hand and created another delicious easy-peasy meal for your Keto enjoyment. If you like chili or fajitas or green chiles – you will enjoy this!
Grab your crockpot and get cooking. This is perfect for a winter day in the Midwest. By the way, my son just scooped this out of the crockpot and said “MOM! This smells so good!” I agree.
Christine’s Keto Crockpot Chicken Fajita Chili
This is what I had on hand:
- 1.5 lbs boneless chicken breasts
- 8 ounces of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
- 12 ounces (1 jar) of Trader Joe’s Salsa Authentica
- 4 ounces of green chilies (read your labels, watch for added ingredients)
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 green pepper sliced thin
- 1 onion sliced thin
Set crockpot to high if you want to cook in 3 – 4 hours. Low if you have all day.
Add the whole breasts to crockpot. No need to cube chicken – you can shred with a fork later.
Add cream cheese, salsa, green chiles, lime juice, and all seasonings to the crockpot.
When chicken is cooked and tender, shred with a fork.
Add green pepper and onion and continue cooking awhile longer until they are tender.
Scoop and add toppings: avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream. Note: you will want to add some healthy fat toppings, as this recipe needs added fats. Makes about 8 servings.
My son just went back for his second serving as I’m typing this!
Bonus material – I even put the recipe in my Carb Manager app so you can see the macros.
Don’t forget, I’d love to share my friend’s creations, too. So please reach out on my contact page if you have a recipe creation you’d love to share with EVERYONE!
