INGREDIENTS
1 15 oz can black beans -- rinsed and drained
2 15.25 oz cans whole kernel corn -- drained
1 cup bottled thick and chunky salsa
5 or 6 skinless boneless chicken breasts -- (can use frozen)
1 8 oz brick cream cheese -- low fat is fine
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS
In a 3.5 or 4 quart electric slow cooker, mix together the beans, corn, and 1/2 cup salsa. Top with the chicken breasts, then pour the remaining salsa over the chicken.
Cover and cook on the high heat setting 2.5-3 hours, or until the chicken is tender and white throughout; do not overcook or the chicken will toughen.
Remove the chicken and cut into bite sized pieces. Add back to the slow cooker.
Add the cream cheese (cut into cubes to melt faster), and turn slow cooker to high heat. Heat until cream cheese melts and blends into sauce.
Serve over rice. Top with shredded cheese.

My husband and I both liked it.Alot. Easy too. Could even use precooked and diced chicken from Market Day and just cook for an hour or so.

instead of cutting up the chicken I shredded it with a fork. I used mexicorn. Was great over a baked potato! I plan on using the leftovers for quesadillas!

My first ever slow-cooked meal - eating it at work as we speak. I'm sold! I agree with wedsngr - great for the 20-something bachelor!

A new favorite. I'm a lazy bachelor who prefers protein-heavy dishes, and this was tasty, healthy, and really simple to make.

Served this along with 4 other slow cooked meals. This along with the fish was rated the best.

This was fabulous! My husband absolutely loved it! It is probably the best thing I've ever made in the crock pot.

Great recipe. Super easy to make, very tasty and you can adjust flavor and spicy taste by merely selecting different salsa.

I really enjoyed this recipe. Just as a serving suggestion, I topped mine with tortilla strips.
