I've tweaked the original recipe a bit so I'm going to give you the original recipe and then tell/show you what I do.
4 frozen chicken breast or 8 frozen chicken tenders in the crockpot
Cover with 1 can of rinsed black beans and 1 can drained (or 1 cup frozen) corn
Dump 1 jar (about 2 cups) of favorite salsa on top (Mango and peach salsas are superb! HH doesn't like those kind so I stick to our usual (Kirkland Organic), so you'll have to make it with the fancy salsas so I can live vicariously through you. Thanks!)
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
At the last half hour of cooking add 1 cube of cream cheese. Shred or sliced chicken breast when fully cooked.
If you'd like, add 1 cup of cooked rice.
Serve over rice, over chips, on salad, or in a tortilla.
This recipe is delicious as is. I first decided to tweak the recipe because I wanted to freeze it and was unsure of how the cream cheese would hold up. So I omitted the cream cheese and we just top ours with shredded cheese.
Then I started to use less meat in most of my recipes to save money and because we don't need to eat as much meat as we were. I substitute with extra beans, beef it up with a few other ingredients and end up with enough for two meals instead of one. I don't know if I've really made this the same way more than once.
Here's what I did last time I made it:
2 frozen chicken breast
2 cans of black beans (drained)
1 cup of frozen corn
1 can of diced tomatoes (drained):
2 cups of salsa:
Cooked and shredded:
This time we had nachos:
The kids love this meal:
I usually make this up for dinner and freeze the left overs for another night.
I didn't add rice this time and I still had plenty for all 6 of us to eat, Nathan's lunch for work, and enough for another meal.
So far, everyone who has tried this recipe has loved it.
