DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté onion, garlic and peppers with olive oil.
  • Poach boneless skinless chicken breast in chicken broth. Remove from broth, let cool and dice.
  • Add chicken, chicken broth, beans, corn, onion, garlic & pepper mixture and seasonings to crock pot.
  • Cook in crock pot on high for at least 2 hours.
  • Serve garnished with a spoon of cumin cream (made by combining 1 teaspoon ground cumin with 1 cup low-fat or fat-free plain yogurt), a spoon of tomatilla salsa (best made from fresh tomatilla's, with jalapeno, red onion, cilantro and lime juice - but in a pinch I like to have a small can of Herdez Salsa Verde on hand), and a sprinkle of fresh chopped cilantro.
  • For those who dare add any more Fat & Cholesterol, add a sprinkle of shredded cheese such as Monterey Jack or Cheddar - a little crumbled Queso Blanco, or Queso Fresco would be nice too.
  • Pairs well with cornbread.
