Midweek Morsels: Chicken Taco Chili

I am loving my slow cooker these days! What's more is I'm loving my recipe board on Pinterest.  I can't believe none of us thought of that web site sooner!  One of those things where you're kicking yourself and saying "why didn't I think of that?" Anyhow, it's not only a great site for organization, crafts, home decor and great things to teach your children...it's fantastic for recipes!!  I love discovering new recipes and new blogs to follow.  I found this recipe but wasn't surprised that it came from Skinny Taste.  Gina creates amazing food that you can feel good about eating.  A lot of her creations, this recipe included, come with Weight Watchers points.  I don't follow that plan, but if you do and want points just click on the recipe title and you'll see those points. This recipe was unbelievable!
