Being a chef I am always looking for new “dishes” to try. I love the crock pot because of its slow cooking, so I stumbled across this great chicken dish and made it last night. I prefer dark meat over white, but the chicken breast were great in this stewed dish with the beans and tomatoes. We ate it in a bowl, but next time will probably try with tortillas and some other fixings.

Ingredients:
2-3 chicken breasts
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can mexican chili beans
(Do not drain tomatoes or beans)
1 Package Taco Seasoning
1 can chopped green chiles
1/2 jar of your favorite salsa

Cooking instructions:
Layer chicken in bottom of crock pot. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order written. Do not stir. Cook on low 7-8 hours. Take out chicken and shred. Return chicken to crock pot and stir well.

Serve with tortilla chips or on a flour tortilla. Serve with chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and shredded cheese if desired.
