I love, love, loooovvvveeee my crockpot! There are few things better than coming home to a healthy, warm and delicious meal waiting for you to devour. There's no frantically wracking your brain for what is in the fridge to creatively make for dinner or plotting the quickest route into the grocery store and home, all while you pull your hair out because you are in traffic and haven't moved for 10 minutes. Is that just me?
Two crockpot staples in my house are chili and chicken tortilla soup, the latter being my favorite, which is why I am here to share with you my
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 4-5 breasts), shredded (I cook the chicken in the crockpot a day or two before I know I am going to make this. It makes shredding the chicken SO much easier.
3 cans diced tomatoes
1 package of frozen corn or one can, whatever you have will work!
14.5 ouces black beans (No Salt Added), drained & rinsed
1 medium white onion, diced
1-2 jalapeño, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
1 Tsp. ground cumin
1 Tsp. chili powder
1 Tsp. salt
1/4 Tsp. black pepper
Red onion, diced
Cheddar cheese, shredded
I also enjoy it with tortilla chips.
Happy crockpot cooking!
