Chicken and Black Beans

Quick and easy dinner which can be served several different ways depending on your taste or mood, can’t remember where I got this recipe from.

3 – 4 boneless chicken breast halves, cut in strips (I used 5 breasts but they were frozen so I didn’t cut them into strips, I just put them into the crock pot whole and frozen)

1 (12 – 15 oz) can corn, drained

1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 onion, halved and thinly sliced

1 green bell pepper, cut into strips (didn’t have one so left it out)

1 (14 1/2 oz) can diced tomatoes with liquid

1 (6 oz) can tomato paste

Put chicken in crock pot and top with corn, beans, onion and pepper.  In a separate bowl, combine cumin, chili powder, diced tomatoes and tomato paste then pour over ingredients in crock pot.  Cook on low 5 – 6 hours.

Now you can serve the chicken breasts whole (maybe over rice?) and top with the sauce or you can take the chicken out of the crock pot, shred it with 2 forks then return it to the crock pot and stir it into the sauce then serve it on tortillas or wraps or whatever you like.  This is how we had it today.
