Slow Cooker Southwest Chicken
Author: 
Recipe type: Dinner
 
An easy crock pot dinner. Keep these ingredients on hand for a busy day!
Ingredients
  • 1 (10-16 ounce) bag frozen corn
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 2 large frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar medium salsa (I used Pace)
  • tortilla chips
  • sour cream
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • chopped cilantro
  • diced avocado
Instructions
  1. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray. Pour the bag of frozen corn into the bottom. Place the chicken breasts on top of corn and cover with black beans and jar of salsa. Cook on high for 1 hour, then turn to low and continue to cook for 4 hours.
  2. Shred chicken with forks and stir. Serve with tortilla chips and top with sour cream, chopped cilantro & avocado if desired.
Notes
It is important to use medium salsa. Mild is does not add enough flavor. Also, make sure you serve with tortilla chips and not tortillas. The salty crunch is what makes this dish! My kids love black beans, so next time I may add another can and use a little less corn.
