Fiesta Chicken (from Katie Lipinski)

Thank goodness Katie gave me this recipe because it is so easy and has become a family favorite.

In your crockpot, put a bag of boneless, skinless chicken breasts or enough to fit to capacity, a packet of taco seasoning mix and a jar of salsa.

Cook on high for 5 hours. After 5 hours, break up the chicken with 2 forks or whatever method you want. It falls apart pretty easily. Turn the crockpot to low and add 1 can of black beans (drained somewhat) and 1 can corn or about the same amount fresh or frozen and some grated cheese - about 1 and 1/2 cups.

Cook for a while longer until ingredients are blended and heated through. You only need about 1/2 hour but leave on for longer if you like.

I use my own blend of spices to avoid the sodium in the taco mix- chili powder, onion powder, cayenne, garlic and cumin.

You can eat this with tortilla chips, over rice (I like brown rice), in a tortilla or just plain. It's very tasty.
