Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken

This is my favorite kind of recipe, easy, low-cal, and oh so satisfying! I served this over Cilantro Lime Rice and topped it off with Guacamole, sour cream, and cheese to make my own little burrito bowl reminiscent of those I get from Chipotle. My only complaint is that I could barely keep myself from seconds and thirds... and fourths! Recipe from Gina at Skinny Taste.
 
Ingredients:
24 oz (1 1/2) lbs chicken breast
14.4 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies, with juices
15 oz can black beans, drained
8 oz frozen corn (I used canned)
4 oz can sliced jalapeno, drained (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
14.4 oz can fat free chicken broth
3 scallions, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)
Salt to taste

Directions:
Combine chicken broth, beans, corn, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro, scallions, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt in the crock pot. Season chicken breast with salt and lay on top. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Adjust salt and seasoning. Serve over rice and top with your favorite fixings (extra points).

Yum - this looks so good and I love anything that tastes like the burrito bowls at Chipotle! Can't wait to try this - it looks so easy.

This looks sooo good! I think this one might go on next week's menu (maybe with some giant tortillas--I'm a burrito gal myself).

YUM YUM YUM! I made this for dinner tonight and it was super yummy! Both DH and my 1yo liked it so it's definitely a win in my book! And, bonus points, it was easy AND used the CrockPot. My kind of recipe :) I also made the cilantro lime rice and it was a delish combo! Thanks for sharing!

@Stephanie @ Confessions of a Trophy Wife I love this with the cilantro rice, too. It's like Chipotle without the guilt!
