EASY DINNER #4 - Southwestern Chicken Crock Pot

From a series of easy dinner recipes, explained in this post.

There aren't that many things I use a crock pot for; mostly cooking meat.  This is one of the few actual meals that I like cooked in a one.  It's super easy for a day when you will be gone a lot, and most of the ingredients are things you probably keep on hand anyway.  If you want to doctor it up by adding more seasonings, go for it.


1 bag frozen corn
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts
16 oz. salsa or picante sauce (homemade or from a jar, whatever)

In a large crock pot layer corn, then chicken, then beans, and top with salsa.  Cook on low 4-6 hours (longer if your chicken is frozen, or cook on high).  Shred chicken and serve with fresh cilantro, sour cream, tortilla chips and cheese, if desired.
