You can follow our family on youtube on our many foster-adopt homeschooling adventures

This is a fast meal to put together! And OOOHHHH SO YUMMY!!!


Ingredients: (We double this recipe and it barley fits into our extra large crock pot – but feeds our whole family )

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1 can of corn, drained
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed (we use 1 cup of dried bean that soak overnight)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes – You may also use 3 large tomatoes or 5 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons paprika or chili powder
  • OPTIONAL: 4 chopped tomatilloes
  • OPTIONAL: 1 chopped chili pepper



  1. Place your washed chicken breasts in the bottom of your crock pot.
  2. Pour corn and beans on top of the chicken.
  3. Sprinkle with seasonings.
  4. Place cream cheese block on top of corn.
  5. Pour diced tomatoes, and optional tomatilloes and chilies on top.
  6. Let cook on high for 4 to 6 hours, stirring a few times through out the day.


You can  shred the chicken and serve over rice, or leave the chicken breasts whole serve with a salad and chips and salsa.
