DIRECTIONS

  • Sunday: Cooking the Chicken
  • In a big, oval crock-pot layer chicken and canned tomatoes.
  • Add 1-cup water.
  • Set crock-pot to low, cover and cook for 5 hours till tender.
  • Remove from crock-pot, cover and refrigerate.
  • Monday: Eat leftovers from Sunday or go out to dinner!
  • Monday Night/Tuesday: Chicken Chili.
  • Shred the chicken breasts using two forks (get help, it will go faster with more hands).
  • In your very same big, oval crock-pot place all of the shredded chicken. Open and dump in the following: all of the El Pato (2 cans) and all of the green chilies (1 can, more if you like spicy, less if you don't). Stir.
  • Cover, turn crock-pot to low and go to work.
  • Come home from work (approximately 8 hours later).
  • In a small saucepan, heat the black beans.
  • Microwave tortillas wrapped in moistened paper towels.
  • Serve a large scoop of chicken, a scoop of black beans and a tortilla or two on each plate.
  • Cover and refrigerate leftover chicken and beans.
  • Wednesday: Smothered Burritos.
  • In a medium saucepan warm leftover chicken and beans. Add 1 package Neufchatel cheese, stirring until melted.
  • Pour salsa into mixture.
  • Spray a 14x9 inch-baking pan with cooking spray.
  • One at a time, fill 4 tortillas each with a quarter of the chicken mixture, roll and place in baking pan.
  • Smother with enchilada sauce. Top with shredded cheese if you like.
  • Bake @ 350 for 1/2 hour or until bubbly.
