Made this for our (not so) small group this weekend and it was a hit. Every bite got eaten- so much that you’ll have to excuse this after-thought photo from the last time I made it!
Crockpot Salsa and Black Bean Chicken
3 chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise
5-6 boneless chicken thighs
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 jar salsa (I used tostitos mild)
seasonings: salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder
toppings: avocado, cilantro, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese, lime wedges
tortillas or tortilla chips
Layer the chicken in the crock pot. Dump black beans on top and spread out. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings to your taste. Dump salsa on top and spread out. Cover and cook on low 8 hours or so. Before serving, take two forks and shred the chicken into bite size pieces. Serve in tortillas with toppings or over a plate of tortilla chips.
*for a smaller crowd, use less chicken-everything else is the same.
