  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 can black beans 15 ounces, with the liquid
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen or fresh corn kernels
  • 1 can diced tomatoes 28 ounces
  • 1 whole lime juiced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red adobo seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese plus additional for sprinkling on top
  • avocado optional, for topping

  1. Get out a slow cooker and combine the chicken, beans, corn, diced tomatoes, lime juice and the seasonings into it. Mix it, then close it and turn it to low to cook for 5 hours. When it has been 5 hours, add the 1/4 cup of cheese to the slow cooker and stir it in. Close it again and let it all cook for another hour. Remove the lid and shred the chicken with 2 forks. Serve it immediately over your choice of veggie or starch with any number of toppings like avocado, extra cheese or salsa! The leftovers are great too.
