Works for Me Wednesday: Santa Fe Chicken

Posted by Sherry on 7/1/2008 in General |

Shannon is having a special themed edition of Works for Me Wednesday featuring recipes with five or less ingredients.

Here’s mine:

Combine the following in your crockpot:
1 can black beans, drained
1 can corn
1/2 cup salsa

After stirring, add:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup more salsa

Cook on low for 3 hours. Then add,
1 4 oz. or 8 oz. (depending on how much you like cream cheese) block of cream cheese.

Cook one more hour. Serve over rice with flour tortillas.

That’s five ingredients if you don’t count the rice or the tortillas. My kids like this dish with both rice and tortillas. So did I cheat or not?

    This is one of our favorite recipes – especially for Sunday dinner! We don’t do the cream cheese, though. We also serve it with rice, and I fry up corn tortillas to go with it, instead of flour tortillas. On the side we have bowls of sliced black olives, sour cream, and jalapenos. Perfect meal!

    Gotta love the crockpot! My husband and kids will love this!

  • Thanks for stopping by my blog! I usually serve this over rice. I’ve never tried it with tortillas. Great idea!!

  • Well, I don’t know if it is cheating or not, but I saved it will give it a try. It sounds yummy and is the sort of thing my family likes to eat.
