Clean Eating Tortilla Chicken Stew

Clean Eating Tortilla Chicken Stew

(Makes approximately 7 servings)


  • 1 1/2 lb. (680 g) raw chicken breasts
  • 1 (12 oz.) jar of your favorite clean salsa (I use Salsa Authentica from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 pound (454g) frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 pound (454 g) frozen, mixed bell peppers (also found at Trader Joe’s)
  • 3 organic, corn tortillas, ripped or shredded by hand
  • Olives and yogurt for garnish (optional)


  1. Place the chicken in the bottom of the pot, and pour everything else over it. (Cover and store in the fridge overnight if needed)
  2. Place pot/insert in your slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  3. Note that the tortillas will not look very pretty after cooking. But they do add a nice flavor.
  4. When cooking is finished, simply use a wooden spoon to stir everything up and break apart the chicken.
  5. Serve garnished with some sliced, black olives and/or a dab of plain yogurt.

What I added to mine:

  • 1 can of organic black beans
  • 1 small can of green chile (gives it some extra flavor) 
  • Added a small amount of cheese as well instead of olives and garlic
