WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

Clean Eating Slow Cooker Southwestern 2 Bean Chicken

For my readers who love and request chicken recipes (you know I don't touch the stuff!), I am sharing this recipe I got from a fellow blogger.  This blogger has a "clean living" blog and does organic which I don't do.  I am just sharing the recipe and you can do as you please with the organic.  (Having been born and raised in the country, I know too much about organic.  It is in the same category as chicken in my little Southern Indiana farm country mind!  Yes, I know it's a mental problem, okay?)

Ingredients
4 raw, boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 8 oz. each)
1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans (rinsed and drained) or 1 1/3 cup home cooked beans
1 (15 oz.) can black beans (rinsed and drained) or 1 1/3 cup home cooked beans
1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes in juice, low sodium is best
1 lb. frozen and thawed organic corn (organic to avoid GMO corn)
1 (12 oz.) jar of your favorite salsa, no sugar added
Directions
Step 1 – Place the chicken breasts on the bottom of your slow cooker. Pour the tomatoes and salsa over that and then layer on the beans and corn.
Step 2 – Cook on low for 5-7 hours, or until the chicken easily falls apart when the pot is stirred.
Eat and Enjoy!
