Ingredients

  • 12-16 oz frozen corn
  • 15 oz can black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup chunky salsa divided
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3-4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 8 oz cream cheese cubed
  • cooked rice
  • shredded Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Pour your beans (already rinsed and drained), corn, garlic, cumin and 1/2 cup of salsa into your 4-quart crock pot and stir until well combined.
  • Place your chicken breasts on top
  • Pour your remaining 1/2 cup of salsa all over your chicken
  • Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours
  • Once your chicken is done, remove it from your crock pot and cut into 1 inch pieces and put it back in your crock pot
  • Add in your cubed cream cheese, stir
  • Cover and cook on high for 15-20 minutes, stirring if it looks like it needs it, until the cream cheese is melted into the sauce
  • Serve chicken and sauce over rice and top with shredded cheddar cheese, if desired

Notes

  • When you make this and look in after it has been cooking for a while, it is going to look like there is a LOT of sauce. That’s a good thing! Trust me, this sauce is amazing over the rice, so don’t fret that it looks like there might be too much sauce for the chicken.
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
