This is supposed to be called Salsa Chicken, but after I somehow kept getting the words reversed and got tired of my 12-year-old correcting me, I decided it would be called Chicken Salsa in our home. I don't know why I never get it right, so we just made the backwards way right. Now I can correct that kid when he says it "wrong," right? Right. I'll use the "correct" name for you, though. We've also made this with turkey leftover from Thanksgiving before. Came out just as yummy!
|Only five ingredients!|
1 can black beans (or almost 2 cups cooked beans)
1 can corn (or couple cups or more of frozen corn)
1 jar salsa
1 block cream cheese
I cut up and freeze chicken when I make my chicken broth, so instead of buying chicken breasts for this recipe, I use that cooked chicken, between 1-2 cups. That means a couple things for me... I can decrease cooking time and there is no need for shredding the chicken as it cooks! I use about two cups of frozen corn, but sometimes I also just use the entire bag. The whole bag of the 365 brand from Whole Foods would be about two cans' worth. I don't use the entire jar of salsa, as we get a rather large jar. Just use however much you want. You can always add more later if you want!
Combine first four ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low 4-6 hours, shredding the chicken as you go.
About a half an hour before finished, add cream cheese. Stir in and let it melt.

Looking good! And trust me, it tastes WAY better than it looks! ;)
