Santa Fe Chicken

This is so easy!  I got this recipe from a blog called "Recipe girl".  I needed it a little more spicy, so I added the jalapenos. THIS recipe girl is adding this one to her list.
·        1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
·        1 (12oz.) bag frozen sweet corn
·        1 ½ C. bottled chunky salsa
·        ¼ C. sliced, pickled jalapeños, 
·        6 boneless/skinless chicken thighs, each thigh cut into 4 pieces
·        1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, cut into chunks
·        1 C. shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Combine the black beans, corn, salsa, jalapeños, and chicken in a crock pot
  2. Cook on high for 3 hours
  3. Add the cream cheese and allow to melt
  4. Stir all ingredients together and serve over Mexican rice
  5. Sprinkle each serving with ¼ C. of cheese
 Tips and Tricks:
  • I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese.
  • I buy the frozen packs of boneless/skinless chicken thighs at Sam’s.  There are 5 in a pack and that is what I use.
