Black Bean Chicken

I figured it was time I posted one of my favorite, go-to recipes.  I call this Black Bean Chicken, and it's a staple lately in our household.  Cook it all day in crock pot, and it will be ready to eat when you are ready to eat it. 

The cast of characters:

2 cans black beans
2 cans corn
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can diced green chilies
taco seasoning to taste

First, add the chicken to the crock pot, and season it with taco seasoning.

Next, add the cans of corn into the mix:

Then it's time for some diced green chilie action:

Now pour on the black beans:

Final step now, you can do it!  Put some taco seasoning on top and turn on the crock pot!

After it's cooked all day, serve it up on warm, whole wheat tortillas.  Maybe add a little sour cream and cheese if you aren't watching those calories.

I promise you, no one will be disappointed in this recipe.  All three of my kids will eat this, and if they will, anyone will.


  1. Great Recipe! I make something similar... will have to try out your variation.

    LOL at the Pioneer Woman-esque recipe & photo shoot. Well done ladies!

  2. The delivery is very Pioneer Woman-ish, but I love the fact that this isn't smothered in butter or sugar or cream (not that I don't love those things). Can't wait to try it.
