Today's Round Up: South of the Border

I tried this recipe for the first time this week and it was a hit. This black bean chicken is made up of just a few ingredients, tastes amazing and is really easy to make. Get your crock pot out and get your taste buds ready for a party!

Black Bean Crock Pot Chicken

* 4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* 1 (15 ozs.) can of corn, drained
* 1 (15 ozs.) can of black beans, drained
* 1 (15 ozs.) jar salsa, any kind
* 8 ozs. cream cheese


Place chicken breasts in crock pot. Mix corn, black beans and salsa together and pour over chicken. Cook on low for 4 1/2 - 5 hours. Place cream cheese block right on top and cook on low for 1/2 an hour. Mix cream cheese in until thoroughly incorporated. The sauce will be a bit runny, but you can thicken it up or serve over spanish rice and along with cornbread. Also makes great enchilada or burrito filling. Enjoy!If you want to join in on your own blog, simply link back to this blog and mention that you are partaking in Thursday's Recipe Rodeo.
