Slow Cooker Mexican Dinner

 I work on Wednesday and I hate to come home and cook so I love to use my crock pot!! This is a great recipe for summer since most crock pot meals are heavy and better for winter :)
 Can't wait to eat it tonight!  It was SERIOUSLY the easiest meal ever!  I just threw it all together in less than 10 minutes! 

 “This is a wonderful, healthy slow-cooker Mexican-style chicken. You can make this recipe spicier by adding jalapeños or other fresh chili peppers.”
• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
• 1 cup / 240 ml black beans
• 1 cup / 240 ml corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
• 1 small jar salsa (your favorite variety)
• 1 Tbsp / 15 ml cumin
• 1 Tbsp / 15 ml chili powder
• 2 cups / 480 ml cooked brown rice
  1. Add to slow cooker: chicken breast, beans, corn, salsa, cumin and chili powder. Mix and cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Serve with cooked brown rice.
To make a creamier version, add ½ cup / 120 ml plain Greek yogurt the last 30 minutes of cooking.
