Southwest Chicken & Beans

This is a favorite slow cooker meal among a lot of my mom-friends. It's so easy to throw together in the morning and then have a healthy, hearty meal to eat for dinner. I like to serve this over rice, and with cheese on top if I have the calories to allow for it. However, it's also good on its own.



Southwest Chicken & Beans

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (no need to thaw first!)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1 cup of salsa

Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on high for about 3-4 hours, or low for 6-8 hours. Using two forks, shred the chicken and stir to combine all ingredients. Serve over rice and topped with cheese. (Nutrition info is without rice or cheese)

  1. Thanks for putting this blog together. I followed you on sparkpeople, and on to runs for cookies. You totally inspire me - also mom of two young boys, trying to find the time/focus to stay healthy.

    I've bookmarked this - sure I'll use it often in my afternoon panic of 'what the heck do i make for dinner tonight'.

  6. So I made this tonight! It turned out good. I'm going to experiment with different salsas to see if I can give it a little kick. I LOVE SPICY FOOD! The rest of the family doesn't love change. (they'd rather i make chicken, rice and a veggie every single night...BORING!!) I like to mix it up. This one will definitely be in the mix every once in a while! =) Thanks!

  8. Made this tonight, it was AMAZING! I was skeptical on how it would taste, but my family loved it! I did serve it taco style for them. I hope it makes good leftovers because I will be having it again tomorrow.

  9. I made a batch of this yesterday just to have ready for quick meals throughout the week, no real plans for it though. Then I came down with a cold and really wanted soup tonight, so I poured some chicken broth over this and heated a bowl in the microwave. It is just like tortilla soup, so good!

  10. Made this for dinner tonight! SO GOOD! Our 5-year-old LOVED it and cleaned her plate! Aside from a little "operator error" (accidentally unplugged the crock pot half-way through the cooking!!) it turned out perfect! For garnishes, we added my husband's homemade guacamole, a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of cheddar and some Chipotle Tabasco sauce (for the grown ups) :). We're making another one of your recipes for dinner tomorrow!

  11. Sounds delicious- what size cans are you using for the corn and for the beans?

    Thanks - looking forward to trying it!
