One Recipe, Three Meals

My crockpot has become a dear friend over the past 6 years... Pretty much when I started having kids. Its so easy to throw all your ingredients in, cover, and the let magic happen. Whether you work outside the home or from inside the home, there's nothing better than to smell the wonderful aroma of your dinner cooking and to know that all you have to do is grab a plate and fork. Sigh. There are a plethora of recipes that you can find on the web, but I thought I'd share a family favorite- one recipe, three meals Mexican Chicken dinner.

This recipe is delicious by itself. Really. But that's not the only reason for loving it. Knowing that I have three ways of eating this one meal is great! We can have it with rice, over a mixed greens salad, or even on top of tortilla chips with melted cheese for nachos! All of a sudden, leftover nights start to get a little more exciting. ;)

what you need:

  • 2-3 lbs chicken breast or tenderloins (frozen or unfrozen)
  • 1 15 oz can of black beans, drained
  • 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 1 c. of chicken or vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • crockpot

what to do:

  • Lightly season your chicken breast or tenderloins (optional)
  • Drain the can of black beans and pour on top of the chicken
  • Empty the can of diced tomatoes and liquid over the black beans
  • Sprinkle the entire package of taco seasoning over the previous ingredients
  • Finally, pour the cup of broth
  • Cover the crock pot and set it cook for 4-6 hours (if frozen, 6 hours is best)
  • Once the designated time has past and the chicken is cooked, shred it (break it apart)

lil' extras: 

  • Add frozen corn
  • Double the batch for a large party or dinner guests.
  • This recipe freezes well. If you have a lot left over, store in freezer bags or a freezer-friendly container until you're ready to eat it again.
  • Pull out your taco shells (hard or soft). After all, it has taco seasoning in it! lol
  • The possibilities are endless. Be creative, work with what's in the pantry, and be done with dinner!
