I found a pretty irresistible recipe the other day on Pinterest (the recipe originally came from The Larson Lingo). It was a slow cooker recipe with only 5 ingredients: cream cheese, diced tomatoes, black beans, corn, and chicken. Not just regular old thawed chicken breast either, frozen chicken works just fine. That’s the part I really liked.
All I did was throw everything into the slow cooker and cooked it for 6 hours. You can cook longer if you’d like but I was already getting a late start.
I love the fact that I don’t have to thaw the chicken first. It’s so easy!
In my opinion, anything with cream cheese is guaranteed delicious. Cream cheese frosting, cream cheese in italian dishes, and yep, cream cheese in mexican food! Or just cream cheese on a bagel..that does the trick too.
Every two hours or so I stirred everything up.
Right before 6 hours, I pulled the chicken breasts apart using two forks. I shredded them up then let the mixture cook for another hour-hour and a half.
My husband ate this in a tortilla but I just had some in a bowl with cheese on top.
It’s so good and super easy too. I love slow cookers! They are probably one of the best kitchen inventions ever made.
What’s your favorite slow cooker recipe? Any easy recommendations?
