Slow Cooking Thursday

Today's recipe is really quick to throw together, tastes good and is healthy too!

Tex-Mex Chicken
2 cans (15 ounces) corn, drained
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 jar (16 ounces) chunky salsa
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Combine corn, beans and 1/2 cup of the salsa in a 6 quart slow cooker.
Place chicken on top of mix. Pour remaining salsa over chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook for 5 more minutes or until cheese melts.

Hey Mari, I just found some salsa at Walmart in Cordoba today! Can't buy canned black beans but I can get some dried ones and make my own. Definitely going to try this recipe. Sounds yummy!

The recipe looks delicious and I enjoy reading your tip on the extract in the previous post. It's something that Grandma taught me many years ago.

Have a wonderful day.
