Crock-Pot Chicken and Black Beans
This recipe was originally sent to us by our friend Penny W. who has a blog over at Slightly Squirrelly. This a nice basic recipe that makes a great filling for soft tacos or burritos or a topping over chips for some amazing nachos.
If your enjoy a little spice to your meals you can adjust the ingredients to add a little heat. Depending on how spicy you like your food you can add some fresh or canned diced jalapeño peppers or just add some ground chili powder for a little extra heat.
But, since I was making this for my family and my kid does not like spicy food I just keep the seasoning mild with some taco seasoning. Store bought taco seasoning is OK, but if you have the time to make your own homemade taco seasoning that is going to work fantastic in this recipe as it is low sodium and just overall healthier for you.
This recipe is easily adapted to a slow cooker freezer meal as well. Just dump all the ingredients into a freezer bag, label and toss in the freezer. To cook just thaw overnight in the refrigerator and follow the cooking instructions in the recipe. Easy!
