Crock Pot Black Bean Chicken

I have made this 4 times in the last 2 weeks. CRAZY I know. We made it for 2 families. One family had a baby and another family had an emergency. I made it just for us and am making it again today for my parents! This is one of our most versatile and favorite meals! This is amazing for tacos, perfect for stuffing enchiladas or burritos. This is AMAZING on salads, I mean the options are endless. I have made this recipe for years and we've never gotten tired of it. I tweaked it over and over again until we came up with this! It's perfect! I know I have already said this, but it is a GREAT meal your family and friends will love! And best yet, you make it in the morning and never have to answer the evening dreaded question "WHAT'S FOR DINNER?!" And answer "I don't know." You can simply say.... "Crock Pot Black Bean Chicken! Do you want tacos, enchiladas, burritos or taco salad?!" YUM!

Crock Pot Black Bean Chicken

2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cans black beans - drained and rinsed
2-3 T. Taco Seasoning
2 c. Chicken Broth - water and chicken bouillon works great

Place chicken breasts in a greased crock pot. Pour black beans, taco seasoning and chicken broth over all. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-6. When done, take 2 table forks and shred the chicken in the "juices." This keeps the chicken super moist and flavorful. Remove for your tacos or burritos with a slotted spoon! Enjoy!

*As an option you can add 1/2 c. salsa in the crock pot for extra flavor. It has plenty without, but is a zesty way to switch it up.
