- 2-3 chicken breasts
- approx 2 cups salsa (I used medium heat and about 2/3 of the jar that was left)
- 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 can corn, drained
- approx 1/2 tsp cumin
- approx 1/2 tsp chili powder
- (1) 8 oz block cream cheese or neufchatel (1/3 less fat- still tastes great for cooking)
Place chicken in slow cooker; add salsa, black beans, corn, cumin and chili powder; cook on low for approx 4 hours until chicken is tender and shreds easily. Shred chicken with a fork, add cheese and cook on low for approx 30 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Mix together.
By the way I just thought I would share with you my embarrassing story of the day. I made the brilliant mistake of wearing cowboy boots today with absolutely no traction. I walked down the driveway to wheel the garbage can back in, and Trav threw a fit that we had to go back in. He did the full body tantrum bit, so I picked him and and started back towards the house holding him in one arm and pulling the can with my other. I knew the second I stepped on the ice that what was about to happen wasn't going to be pretty. I also knew that I would have to sacrifice my bod for little Trav. After ice skating for a few very long seconds trying to regain my balance, I dropped the can, and unfortunately dropped my body to the ice twisting it so that Trav didn't hit. This would have been embarrassing enough for myself but lucky for me there were crews working right next to me building a new house, and another set of men down the street building another house. I had several pairs of eyes on me. I tried to get up and pretend it was no biggie but you just can't brush that off. I'm sure I looked like a total idiot. Hopefully I'm not the only person out there who has done this before. Trav, be sure to thank your momma for this one day...
