  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 cups tortilla chips
  • ¾ cup Mexican style shredded reduced fat cheese
  • Cilantro and lime wedges, for serving, if desired.

  1. Place chicken in a slow cooker. (preferably 4- or 5-Quart)
  2. Add the carrots, onion, chicken broth, black beans, tomatoes, chili powder and cumin.
  3. Stir to combine.
