Slow Cooker Mexican Delight!

>> Saturday, August 29, 2015

The other day, as I walked down to our clinic kitchen to get my lunch, I was greeted by mouthwatering aromas of Mexican spices filling the air... I turned the corner to find my dear friend and coworker Chantelle heating up her delightful lunch that she had brought from home.  She graciously packed a lunch for me at work the next day, and it tasted even better than it smelled... this recipe needs to be shared!!


  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 can of tomatoes (796 mL size)
  • 1 can of corn (341 mL size)
  • 1 can black beans (540 mL size)
  • 1 package of low sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • And a little bit of love

DIRECTIONS: (slow cookers are so easy! :)

1.  Throw all ingredients in the slow cooker.  Cook for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low. 

2.  Shred the chicken in the mixture and leave it on low for another hour or two – just to get the flavor all the way through the chicken.'re done!

This dish can be enjoyed as is or in a taco, but my favorite option is to put it over a mixed green salad!  This adds lots of FreeVeg to the meal.  If you put it over a salad or in a taco, drain fluid first.

Makes 10 servings.  Per serving:
