You are going to love me for this. This meal is SUPER easy to make and doesn’t take much time at all. You could even make this meal easier by cooking and shredding your chicken ahead of time. Then just dump the rest of the ingredients in and TA DA – a hearty dinner.
All you need is:
2 cups of cooked, shredded chicken (I just cooked and shredded two chicken breasts – it was enough for Hubs and I plus lots of leftovers.)
1 – 32 oz. box of chicken broth
1 – can corn (drained)
2 handfuls chopped cilantro
1 – squeezed lime
1 – can diced tomatoes (regular size)
1 – can diced tomatoes w/ chilies
1/2 large yellow onion
1 – can black beans
2-3 Tbsp. of tomato paste
2 tsp. of cumin
2 tsp. of chili powder (I only used 1 tsp. because I don’t like things really spicy – it definitely still had some kick to it though.)
2 tsp. of garlic powder
Shredded cheese (optional)
Sour cream (optional)
I added shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips, and a huge dollop of sour cream.
UPDATE: You could actually do this in the crock pot and it’s wonderful-er (that’s a word) because all of the ingredients have a chance to marinade together. I just cooked and shredded my chicken breasts the day before. The next morning I dumped everything into my crock pot for 8 hours on low. AMAZING.
