Monday's Meal for Tuesday

I have been a blog slacker. Don't worry (all three of you), I have a real post coming soon!!! :) For now, here is a simple meal to make for the fam! Once again got it from The Kitchen Cafe and I LOVED it! My four year old actually prepared the whole meal. It is THAT easy.

Slow Cooker Southwest Chicken Stacks

2 cups frozen corn
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 large frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
1 1/2 cups salsa

Lightly grease the bottom and sides of the slow cooker. Pour frozen corn into the bottom of the slow cooker and place the frozen chicken breasts on top. Cover with beans and salsa. Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred with forks. Return to the slow cooker and stir until the chicken, corn, beans and salsa are combined.

Serve on a bed of tortilla chips and top with additional garnishes: lettuce, tomato, avocado, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, lime wedges, etc.

***I think it would also taste good wrapped in a tortilla. Maybe?

We are trying this for dinner tonight. It's all in the slow cooker! We are also gonna try it with the tortillas vs. the chips so I'll let you know how it goes over!
