Ellen mentioned this recipe. I have never posted on the blog, so here we go. You can take liberties and adjust as you wish - it's not rocket science.
3 - 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (you could use thighs if you prefer dark meat)
1 can black beans or your preference
1 can corn - drained (I use a half of pkg. of frozen)
1 regular jar of salsa
1 - 2 pkgs. of taco seasoning (we use 2 - as one just didn't flavor it enough)
Place your chicken in the bottom of your crockpot and top with all the other ingredients. I also add about 1/2 cup of water to the pot.
Heat on low for 8 hours. (I usually cook on high for about 2-3 hours, then low for about 4 since I am at home most of the day).
Before serving, use a couple of forks and go about shredding the chicken into the mixture.
This is great when working all day. Put it on before going to work, and it's done when you get home.
This is extremely filling and it really goes a long way.
We have served it as burrito and/or taco filling. Served over rice. Made nachos with it and served over chips and topped with shredded cheese and sour cream. Makes a great messy sandwich (like a sloppy-jo). I am sure there are many other ways to serve. Ooooh, I thinking over wide noodles? YUM
I believe you guys will really like it. So simple and easy, not real high in calories, and good for you.
Here's a picture of what is left for day 3 for 2 of us. It will be served as nachos this time.
I hope you all enjoy it. I definitely give it a thumbs up as does G.
