Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup Swanson® Organic Free-Ranch Chicken Stock or broth
  • 2 cans (14.75 ounces EACH) cream style corn
  • 1 can (14.75 ounces) fire-roasted corn or regular canned corn or Mexicorn (this is what is pictured in the photos -- has the added red & green pepper)
  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (4 ounces) fire-roasted diced green chilies
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder regular chili powder also works
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups Colby OR Monterey Jack Cheese freshly grated; not from a bag
  • 2 cups half and half or heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional additions: fresh lime, fresh cilantro, diced onion, hot sauce, sour cream, avocado
  • Step by Step Directions

    1. Spray a large crockpot (I use a 6-quart crockpot) with nonstick spray.

      Trim the fat off the breasts or thighs. If you are using breasts cut each breast into 2 pieces.

      Add the trimmed chicken, garlic, chicken stock, creamed cans of corn, drained fire-roasted corn, drained and rinsed black beans, undrained diced green chilies, chipotle chili powder, paprika, and cumin to the crockpot.

    2. Stir well. Cover and cook on high for 3-5 hours or low for 4-6 hours or until the chicken shreds easily.

      Remove the chicken and shred. While shredding the chicken add in the freshly grated (if you use cheese from a bag it gets greasy) cheese and the half and half.

    3. Return the shredded chicken and mix. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

      Serve with desired toppings: fresh lime, fresh cilantro, squirt of hot sauce, spoonful of sour cream, or fresh avocado.
