Southwest Chicken and Beans

May 3, 2013

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!!!!

    I’m so going to try this. I think between work, school, the gym and my daughter the crock pot is about to become my new best friend.

    Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! “Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.” by Sir Arthur Eddington.
