(Makes 10-12 servings) I usually half the amounts.
2 (15 oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
4 cups frozen corn
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. onion powder
2 cups Pace salsa, divided (we used the black bean and corn salsa)
Tabasco sauce (or any other hot sauce), to taste.. (**optional.. this isn't part of the original recipe but we added it for an added kick)
10 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 (8 oz) pkgs. cream cheese, cubed
Tortilla Chips for dipping.
shredded cheddar cheese
Combine beans, corn, garlic, cumin and 1/2 of the salsa in slow cooker. Arrange chicken breasts over top. Pour remaining salsa (and optional hot sauce) over top of chicken. Cover. Cook on high 2-3 hours or on low 4-6 hours. Remove chicken and cut into bite size pieces. Return to crockpot. Stir in cream cheese. Cook on high until it melts. Top with cheese. Eat with Tortilla Chips.
I started this blog a few years ago because I was tired of trying to organize all my recipes. I never knew what cookbook the recipe I was looking for was in and I would spend hours thumbing through books and papers trying to find the one I was looking for. I don't cook anything fancy, just simple homemade food that our family enjoys. If me or my family won't eat it then you won't find the recipe on my blog. I am not blogging for fame so the recipes may be posted randomly. I only post recipes that I have tried and we will be making again. I hope you enjoy our collection of our family's favorites recipes. ~Krista C.
