Chicken Santa Fe


  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 cup bottled thick and chunky salsa, divided
  • 5 or 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. In a slow cooker, mix together the beans, corn and 1/2 cup salsa.
  2. Top with the chicken breasts, then pour the remaining 1/2 cup salsa over the chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the chicken is tender and white throughout; do not overcook or the chicken will toughen.
  4. Sprinkle cheese on top, cover, and cook until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
