I have learned a new recipe for my 101 goals in 1001 days! I found it on Pinterest, the wonderful site of sharing everything good in the world. It originally comes from The Larson Lingo. Michael really loves this, and I think it’s very tasty. On top of that, it’s a crock pot recipe, so it’s super easy to make.
4-6 frozen chicken breasts
1 – 8 oz package of cream cheese (full fat)
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of corn, drained
8-12 oz of salsa
Place the frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot. Put the cream cheese on top. Add the black beans, corn, and salsa. And add as much salt as you think is necessary. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Shred the chicken and let sit for about 30 minutes. Serve over rice or in soft taco shells.
Originally this recipe doesn’t have salt, but we found it necessary to add some to bring out all the delicious flavors. When I make this, I take my 1 pound container of salt and just pour some over all the food. I suggest making this first without the salt to determine if you really want to add that much salt. It is easily added after you serve. I was worried about the chicken being hard to shred, but after cooking for so long, it was super easy. The only thing remotely challenging was finding the chicken in the soupy mess.
I don’t have a name for this yet, so if anyone wants to suggest one, I’ll take the best name that comes.
