Crockpot Mexican Chicken

Crockpot Mexican Chicken is super simple, requiring only 3 ingredients! What’s even better, is that you can use your favorite store bought or homemade salsa.

This chicken can be used in tacos, burritos, burrito bowls, and enchiladas. I am sure there are other uses I am not thinking of here.

This literally takes 5 minutes to get ready to put into the slow cooker.

I used a combination of boneless chicken breasts and thighs, but you could certainly use all breasts or all thighs.

The breasts and thighs cost the same at my Walmart, but I mix them because I like the flavor that you get from the dark meat.

I use the black beans from Aldi. They are just as good as any canned black bean. I hope you have an Aldi close by because they can save you a lot of money. Frugal Girl did a post on what to buy and what not to buy at Aldi. You canf ind it here.

This is all you need!

I usually serve this in tortillas with additional salsa, rice, cheese, and Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing . If you choose to use it to make tacos or enchiladas this Spanish Rice would make an excellent side dish.

I am always looking to add nutrition in the dishes I make, and that is why I chose to put the black beans in. If you would like to read about the nutritional benefits of black beans, there is great information here.
