Crock-Pot Fiesta Chicken

Written by COA Nutrition Team On August 12, 2022

Easy slow cooker Mexican chicken with salsa – this crock-pot meal with only a few ingredients!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can drained corn
  • 1 jar salsa
  • 1 can low-fat refried beans
  • sour cream (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In crock-pot, add the chicken breast, black beans (drained), corn and salsa.
  2. Cook on low heat for 5-6 hours
  3. Pull the chicken out at the end of the 5 hours and shred it.
  4. Place it back into the crock-pot.
  5. Stir in one can of Refried Beans
  6. Let it cook for just about another 30 minutes to an hour. (If you didn’t have time for this, you could just mix in the beans & serve it and it would be fine, I just like to cook it longer to let the beans heat up a bit)
  7. Serve in a bed of rice with a little sour cream, chips or tortilla shells (the kids love it this way) or serve with chips as a dip!

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
