Tex-Mex chicken and beans

I actually made a tasty dinner last night, which is remarkable on two counts: 1) I made it (AND it was ready in time for dinner with no help from Dave); 2) it was tasty! So here it is for my future reference:

  • chicken boneless/skinless thighs (2 packages)
  • 1 jar of salsa
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can red beans (I found some with tex-mex seasonings in them)
  • green onions
  • cilantro
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 red onion

Throw chicken in crock pot and stab it all over. Throw salsa in on top. Add half can of each beans. Chop up a little green onion and cilantro. Cook on high 4 hrs or low 8 hrs. Shred chicken into large pieces. Put in rest of beans and chopped red onion/red pepper. Serve with crushed tortilla chips, sour cream and chopped green onions and cilantro as garnish. You can add chipotle chiles if you want for more pop.
