  • 1 can (15.2 oz) whole kernel sweet corn, drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ Mild Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons from 1 container (6.25 oz) Old El Paso™ Original Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (8 oz)
  • Chopped green onions and sour cream, if desired
  • 4 cups tortilla chips


  1. Spray 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In slow cooker, mix chicken, corn, beans, enchilada sauce and taco seasoning mix. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 hours or High heat setting 4 hours.
  2. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese. Top with green onions and sour cream. Top with remaining cheese; serve with tortilla chips.


  • Try 4-cheese Mexican shredded cheese blend instead of the Colby-Monterey Jack.
  • Make nachos! Use a slotted spoon to top the chips with the chili. Instead of stirring in cheese, sprinkle it all on top at the end.
