Crock Pot Recipe Black Beans and Corn Etc.

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

The chicken comes out lovely & tender, the bone in adds flavor. You may substitute Pork Country style ribs for the chicken. If you wish you may brown the thighs before adding to the pot. I say the chili flakes are optional but taste the mixture after 1 hour and then add as much chili flakes to meet the heat that you like. I like close to 2 tsps but it is up to you.

The combination of ingredients was a little off the beaten path and that was caught my interest during the Craze-E crock-pot contest. Why not, I liked the components individually. I'm so glad I took the leap as the combination won me over. I used frozen corn and otherwise followed the recipe. The crunchiness from the water chestnuts was such a nice addition to the dish as crock pot recipes so often lack that texture. It reminded me of jicama in that sense. The flavors were so good a combination of chili and vegetable stew. Thanks Bergy!
