Santa Fe [Chicken]

This is a very versatile meal. It's great on rice, in tortillas, as a vegetarian dish or just by itself with tortilla chips -I serve it without the chicken as a chip dip for company sometimes.
It is very simple, tasteful and makes great left overs. If you have cilantro, I would definitely sprinkle it on top. Can't go wrong with cilantro!

Santa Fe Chicken (serves 5-6)


  • 1 can black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 bag frozen white corn
  • 1 can Ro-tel (replace with a little extra salsa if you don’t like spice)
  • 1 small can green chilies, mild
  • 1/2 c salsa
  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (can use frozen)
  • 1-2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 8 oz package cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
    *For vegetarian meal, don't add chicken, can add an additional 1/2 can of beans

Cooking Directions:

Combine all ingredients except the cream cheese in a crock-pot. Cook on low for 3 to 4 hrs (depending on crock pot). Shred chicken and mix in cream cheese, cook another 10 min, until cheese is melted. Stir and serve.

Serve over rice, in tortillas or w/ tortilla chips.
