Crock Pot Mexican Chicken

Somethings I really love about fb, like posting a question and getting like 20 responses!  On Monday I wanted to try a new recipe using 2 things....chicken breasts and my crock pot.  Anything else I was open to!  I honestly have used my crock pot for only 2 things....pot roast and queso and was ready to venture out with something else!

Ashley D. sent me the easiest and tastiest recipe....
*chicken breasts
*can of black beans (drained)
*can of corn (drained)
*can of Rotel or can of diced tomatoes/can of green chilies
*Spices....I added cumin, cayenne pepper, onion and garlic powder/salt
Put all of that into the ole crock and let it go.  I put mine on the 10hr low setting.  About and hour before you are ready to serve, drop a block of reduced fat or ff cream cheese.

OMG, it was so good!  I didn't even have to use a knife on the chicken.  It actually would have been really tasty to shred and put on tortillas (which hubs did for his 2nd serving).  We served ours with a side of Spanish rice and topped with a little fresh avocado.  Delish!! :)

I am totally ready to bust out the crock pot and try some new things.  There were several others that people sent that sounded totally delish too!  Do you have any great crock pot recipes to share?

  1. We have a yummy BBQ ribs crock pot recipe - smells so good all day! I also have a lasagna crock pot recipe (you don't have to cook the pasta before hand!), but I need to try it a few more times with other's suggestions before I can say its a complete success! Hoping it will be- I'm starting to see the beauty of a crockpot! Thanks for the recipe - sounds yummy!
