Winter is here and that means that crockpot season is in full swing! I love cooking meals in the crockpot because it’s one of those “set it and forget it” meals, which makes my life a whole lot simpler! This recipe was inspired by my friend Penelope and it was a big hit the first time I made it. It is so simple that I am sure it will become a go-to dish in your cookbook.
Spicy Crockpot Chicken
4 boneless chicken breasts
4 cups salsa
2 cups black beans
2 cups corn kernels
2 cups refried beans
1 tablespoon blackening seasoning
water of chix broth if needed
In the bottom of the crock pot, add the refried beans and 2 cups of the salsa. Place the chicken breasts in next and cover with the remaining 2 cups of salsa. On top of that, add the black beans and corn. Turn the crock pot on low heat and cook for 6-8 hours, stirring every now and then. If it starts to get too thick, you can add a little water of chicken broth to thin it out to your liking.
Serve with soaked brown rice, tortillas, tortilla chips, cheese, and/or sour cream (optional).
