Santa Fe Chicken – Crock Pot Recipe

Posted in : Chicken, Main Dish, Slow Cooker Recipe, Soups, Soups on by : asclavijo Tags: ,

Slow cooked shredded chicken with corn, tomatoes and black beans. This can be prepped the night before and turn the crock pot on in the morning for an easy meal for busy families.

Serve over romaine for a healthy and light meal. Serve over rice or in a bowl with nachos on the side. Don’t forget the toppings. Chopped scallions, fresh cilantro, fat free yogurt or sour cream and reduced fat cheddar are my favorites!
