Crock Pot Creamy Black Bean Salsa Chicken

I love this time of year!  I love watching my little girl play outside.  It is her heaven.  She loves the outdoors, parks, walks… basically anything that gets her out of the house she has been stuck in all winter long.  On days that we are outside, I hate stressing about what to make for dinner or even coming in early enough to get it started.  Crock pot meals make that so easy for me.  Stick in all in the crock pot in the morning, and have very little prep to do for dinner time.  They are my favorite.

This meal was incredible.  My entire family enjoyed it and it was extremely easy to make!

    Do the chicken need to be de-frosted? or can they still be frozen?

  2. Catherine

    I always put mine in frozen. All crockpots are different- mine cooks hot. I can put it in frozen at noon on LOW and it's perfect (not over-cooked) at 6pm:-)

    Looks fabulous Nikki! I've had something similar, but without the sour cream. Definitely gonna have to give this version a try! :)

    I mad this for dinner tonight, but instead of using all the taco seasoning, I used half and added black beans in a spicy sauce.. YUMMY!! My 2-year-old triplets ate it on top of nachos.. which was almost better than in the tortillas! Great recipe
