You’ll be declared “Best Cook” for making this dish and you’ll love yourself too for how easy it is. It’s a great feeling to have dinner all cooked in the crockpot when you get home after a long day, or just to know it’s finished and you’re free during that time before dinner when little ones get very needy.

Chicken Fiesta with Black Beans – a crockpot recipe
  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts (I like to use the tenders, as they break apart easily while cooking)
  • 15 oz. corn, drained
  • 15, oz black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tbs. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • onion, sliced
  • green pepper, sliced
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  1. Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker and mix well.
  2. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
  3. Garnish with cheese and serve over cornbread or in tortillas.
