Crockpot Aztec Chicken

There’s nothing more convenient than coming home from running kids to and from activities to dinner ready to serve (well, except getting take-out, which is much MORE expensive and LESS healthy…).

I generally use my crockpot at least once a week and often twice during busy weeks like we have coming up now that school and fall activities are starting back up.

There are several different versions of this dish floating around out there. I took two and melded them to make it work for me. It’s delicious and simple…how can you go wrong with corn, black beans, and cream cheese?!

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 
4 cup frozen corn
2 cans black beans
16 oz salsa (1 jar)
8 oz cream cheese 
brown rice
cheddar cheese, shredded

Combine black beans, corn, and half the salsa in the crockpot. 

Add chicken, spread remaining salsa on top. 

Cook for approximately 3-4 hours on high. 

Add an 8 oz package of cream cheese, stirring in well, in the last hour. 

Prepare rice as preferred (I steam mine). 

Serve over brown rice and top with shredded cheddar cheese. Serve tortilla chips if desired.

  8. I made your recipe tonight. It was so convenient as I had everyone going everywhere. I really liked it. My 16 year old son, who just got home at 9 said it was really good…he is very honest and always tells me what he thinks. Added a bit of taco seasoning and cilantro because we are big fans of both. Thanks. Joni
