Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken Chowder


  • 3 pounds boneless chicken breast or chicken tenders
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 16 oz can Salsa Verde
  • 2 cups chicken broth (homemade preferred)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Optional: 2 cans of pinto beans
  • For toppings: cilantro leaves, sour cream, diced red onion, sliced avocado, ½ teaspoon fresh oregano


  1. Using a 6-quart slow cooker, mix chicken, potatoes, salsa, broth, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook until chicken shreds easily with a fork and sweet potatoes are tender. (About 2 hours on high)
  2. If the chicken is done before the potatoes, remove the chicken and let the potatoes continue to cook. Then add back the shredded chicken to the slow cooker.
  3. Add the optional beans during the last 30 minutes of cooking: taste and season. Serve with the toppings.

The combination of sweet potatoes and cumin is delicious. Enjoy!
