More Southwestern goodness

I borrowed this recipe from a new friend here in town, Suz. It is SOO delicious and great as leftovers, too. Super easy and fast with hardly any prep, just take the chicken straight from the freezer. Try it! You can put it between two tortillas and grill it, use it as dip, roll it up into southwestern egg rolls, whatever you want.

Southwestern Goodness in the Crock-pot
3-4 boneless chicken breasts or thighs
1/2 pkg taco seasoning
1 cup salsa (or more if you'd like)
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1-8 oz pkg cream cheese
Place frozen chicken breasts in a crock-pot and sprinkle taco seasoning atop. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or until chicken falls apart. Shred and add salsa, corn, beans and cream cheese. Cook on low for another 30 minutes to an hour to melt the cheese.
IDEAS:
Wrap in tortillas
Use for chicken quesadillas
Stuff tortillas for chicken enchiladas
Eat with chips
Eat on rice
Top with tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, etc for a salad.
It's even good as a dip with chips
The possibilities are ENDLESS!
