This recipe is great for a busy day - or any day that needs something easy.
*Note - I use a lamp timer to delay my slow-cooker turning on or to switch it off after a certain number of hours. You can get one at Lowes or Home Depot or Ace Hardware. This is helpful when you won't be home to turn the cooker on in mid-morning and the ingredients are cold or partially frozen. It's completely safe and tested.
1 LB - 1 1/4 IB
boneless skinless chicken - breasts or thighs
1 small onion
1 small bell pepper
1 cup salsa (I use
green or red - whatever is on hand)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chopped chili
1 tsp cumin (ground)
1 tbs chopped garlic
(or 2 cloves)
1 tbs oregano
1 tbs pepper
1 tbs chili powder
2 cans pinto beans
1 can cannellini
first 7 ingredients. Add spices on top
of the chicken. Cook on low for 5 - 6
hours or on high for 3 - 4 hours.
When bubbling, test
chicken to see if it will shred easily with a fork. If so, shred chicken. If not, let cook another 30 - 45 minutes.
Add beans to
shredded chicken mixture. Cook 30
minutes more until beans are hot.
with shredded cheese, sour cream and green onions to top. I also serve with fresh cornbread.
