How To Make Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken with Black Beans and Corn

How To Serve Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken:

  • Yesterday I served it over 1/2 cup cooked brown rice with 1 ounce avocado and it was perfection
  • If you want to lower your carbs, try this over cauliflower rice.
  • To turn these into tacos, you transfer the chicken, corn and black beans with a slotted spoon into a serving platter (there will be liquid in the bottom of the slow cooker, you’ll want to discard that) then shred the chicken with two forks and mix it all together. Serve the cheese on the side with tortillas.

And since so many are asking, although I have and love my Instant Pot, I still love my slow cooker! I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This slow cooker is so great, I actually own several!
