This is a recipe I randomly came across a few months ago on the Queen Bee Coupons website. The idea of quinoa in chili intrigued me and I love chili, so decided to make it! This was actually my first time cooking OR eating quinoa and it was great. There's not a whole lot in the chili, but it really expands a lot and adds a bit of substance and texture. Quinoa aside, the chicken and spices are just perfect. My husband said this was the best chili he's ever had, and I'm inclined to agree! I made it over a month ago and froze most of it, but need to make another batch already.

4 C chicken broth10 oz can Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chiles)
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground coriander1 tsp garlic powder
Toppings such as sour cream, grated cheddar, diced avocado, chopped tomatoes, cilantro, or green onion (I just did grated cheddar and it was perfect)In a 5-6 quart slow cooker, stir together everything except chicken. Add chicken. Cover and cook until meat is cooked through, about 4 hours on high or 6 on low. Remove chicken, chop or shred, and return to slow cooker. Serve with your favorite chili toppings, such as grated cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and green onion.
