  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano

For the chili:

  • 3 lbs organic boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 can green chilies
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 parsnip, diced into small cubes
  • 1 adobo pepper, seeded and diced (or sub green pepper)
  • 4 cloves garlic, diced
  • 3 cups chicken stock

For toppings:

  • 3 avocados, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, diced


  1. Add all of the taco seasoning ingredients to a small bowl and mix well, set aside.
  2. Add the chicken to the bottom of the crockpot and add in the remaining ingredients except the chicken stock on top of the chicken in the order shown.

  3. Next, sprinkle the taco seasoning over all the ingredients in the crockpot.

  4. Pour in the chicken stock around the chicken and set the crockpot to cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

  5. Once cooked, use two forks to mix everything together and shred the chicken. It should shred easily simply by mixing it around with the forks.
