Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

Crock pot meals are so awesome. Especially when you have sick baby. I was able to put it all together in 20 minutes then spent the rest of day rocking Sweet Baby and tending to his needs. I love chili especially in the winter time. My mother-in-law makes delicious elk chili and I have this yummy veggie chili. But my husband loves meat! It has perfect flavor but we think it could’ve been a bit spicer. But I did want Sweet Baby to have some, so I didn’t put as much of a kick to it as I normally would. What I also love about this meal is there is no cream of something in it!
