Servings 5


  • 3.5L or larger slow cooker


  • 1 kg skinless chicken thigh fillets, cut into strips
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 185 gram can of corn kernals, drained
  • 435 gram can of refried beans – we use mild, but can be hot if you prefer
  • 300 gram jar of salsa – we use mild, but can be hot if you prefer
  • 35 gram sachet of taco seasoning – we use mild, but can be hot if you prefer


  • Combine all ingredients in slow cooker to mix well
  • Cook on LOW for 5hrs
  • Serving Suggestions:
    Beautiful served on rice with a dollop of sour cream on top if you like!
    This can also be served on tortilla wraps with mixed salad leaves and tomato and avocado for a fun family feed!
  • Notes:
    Adjust heat level to your family's spice preferences.
    Thigh can be swapped for breast but I recommend thigh for best results as breast does tend to dry out more. If using breast I'd reduce cook time to 3-4hrs instead.
