I do have an amazingly easy recipe for you! This southwest chicken and beans is made weekly at the Rambo house!! I typically make this on a night I plan on being a little later at the gym. I love that dinner is just about done when I walk in the door!! My husband and kids have even declared this a new FAVORITE!!! WIN-WIN in my book!!!
Okay so there are a few reasons why I love this dish…
1. You can literally throw it all in a crock pot in the morning (in less than 5 minutes).
2. It’s healthy! And easy!!!
3. You can freeze the leftovers. Just place the chicken in a freezer zip lock bag and pull it out when you need a quick meal.
Slow-Cooked Southwest Chicken and beans
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can mild green chillies
2-3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
1 container of fresh salsa
4 Table spoons of taco seasoning
In a 2- or 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the beans, tomatoes, chillies, chicken, salsa, and seasonings. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Just before serving, Remove Chicken,Shred with two forks. I then spoon out beans and tomatoes. Serve with brown rice, all the taco fixings or I enjoy mine over mixed greens!…. And lots of Hot sauce!!!!
