Ooey Gooey Mexican Chicken

Pin It

This recipe is SO so so yummy and super easy to make too!  My husband and I both love it.  My daughter also likes it - except for the beans.  The best thing about this recipe is it's basically all from cans that you probably have in your pantry - so you just dump it all in the crockpot and you have a fabulous dinner without much effort at all!

Ingredients

3-4 frozen chicken breasts
1 Can cream of chicken soup
1 Can cream of mushroom soup
1 Cup salsa
1 15 oz. can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbs. chili powder
1 Tbs. cumin
1 4 oz. can diced chiles, undrained
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2  Cups monterey jack cheese

Directions

Add all of the ingredients, except for the cheese to your crockpot.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.  Shred chicken and return it to the crockpot.  Add cheese and stir.  Cook long enough for the cheese to get all melted and then serve.  

You can eat it like a soup with cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips as your topping, or you could eat it like a burrito.  I've never had as a burrito simply because I love it as a soup too much.  This recipe makes quite a bit.  It would be enough for a family of 6 at least.  I've thought that adding a can of corn would be yummy too.  Unfortunately my husband doesn't like corn in stuff, so if you try it out, let me know what you think!  Enjoy!

This sounds delicious! I think this just became dinner for tonight! It reminds me of this AMAZING black bean soup that I tried earlier this week. I am not a soup person, but this stuff has me craving it again so soon! I'll let you know how it is with the corn! ;)
