Slowcooker Chicken Chili

I came across this recipe for Chicken Taco Soup for the slowcooker ages ago an added it to my "to try in 2010" list. I've fallen off the wagon of selecting at least one new recipe off this list each week, so I got back in the saddle with this today. The above recipe turned into the inspiration for what I'll now call my Chicken Chili. It was a hit!

1 bottle of beer
2 green peppers, chopped
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
1 can whole tomatoes, undrained
1 can green chilies, undrained
Kernels cut from 3 cobs of corn
My spice mixture (see below) or a ready-made taco seasoning
2 chicken breasts

Combine the beer and all the vegetables in the slowcooker, and stir in the spices. Set the chicken breasts on top, and cook on low for approximately 6 hours. Shred chicken with 2 forks, stir to incorporate, and let cook for another hour or so. Serve with a little cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

Janey's "Do people actually buy expensive sodium-ridden taco seasoning?" Spice Mix:
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
