  1. My daughter is calorie counting ...is their a serving calorie count ??


  1. I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot just before I went to bed. I woke up to the wonderful aroma!! The chicken was so moist it fell apart. I packed it for husband to take to work for lunch. He ended up calling me at my job just to say how good it was and how everyone who had a taste loved it!! This recipe is soooo easy; and very, very good! The best part is that you can use the brand of salsa that you prefer!
  2. Made this yesterday and family liked it. Nobody here (except me) likes black beans, so I used pinto beans. I only had one jar of salsa in the morning when I put this on, but it was enough. We added some in the tortillas with cheese and sour cream. I will make this again, and would double for casual company. Hokiegal
  3. A quick and easy way to make a good, hearty meal. The chicken was still moist and the bean/corn combination was good. We used a medium hot salsa. I served this with sauted onions and avocados and Monterrey Jack cheese. I will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.
  4. This was so delish!! I made a mexican lasagna with the filling. I layered flour tortillas, this filling and a little bit of cheese in a 8x8 dish and then baked for about 15 minutes. My husband and I could not stop eating it!! Will definitely make this again!
  5. Great flavor. I used frozen corn as I didnt have any cans on hand and it turned out fine. I also started with frozen chicken breast (bone in) and it cooked about 9 hrs. Shredded it up and cooked it a tiny bit more. Had great flavor in our tacos, and really set off the toppings. Thanks for a great recipe.


  1. I shortened the hours to 4hrs . Used a cilantro lime salsa and added 8oz package of cream cheese during the last 15 minutes of cooking time.
  2. I love this recipe however instead of using a regular can of black beans i use bushs grillin beans black bean fiesta... and i dilute mine with one cup of water.... this takes a little of the spice away and my children tear it up as well as the husband! When the children are away I follow the recipe exactly and throw in an additional can of rotel and that gives it a fantastic KICK!... We eat ours over rice or chips
  3. Very easy to make. I left out the beans. The smell was very strong and it actually cooked sooner than I expected, but it's probably because i used chicken strips instead of breasts. Either way it was fantastic. Don't forget your corn though! I accidently left it out on my second batch and it didn't taste as good.
