This recipe is GREAT! I did make a few changes: I diced up some onion and garlic and sautéed it in the oil. Then I cut the chicken breasts into bite size pieces and sprinkled some hot chili powder on the chicken pieces prior to browning. I then added the tomatoes with green chili peppers, beans and I used frozen corn and it turned out fantastic. I did try to freeze it and it freezes really good. However, I would suggest if you do freeze it you may want to add the beans in closer to the end of the cooking time because mine were a little soft after reheating. GREAT DISH!!!


EXCELLENT! Per other reviewers, I used northern beans instead of black beans, added some minced garlic, onion powder, all-season salt & chili powder. Sprinkled some mexican-blend cheese overall. Served over "Onion Rice," also found on this site and the combo of flavors was great! Thanks Tammy! This one is worth repeating!


Great recipe! One morning I threw frozen chicken breasts into my slow cooker along with most of the other ingredients listed in this recipe, and ended up with a most delicious soup. I did make my own black beans, adding them to the slow cooker a couple of hours later; I also added 1/2 cup of uncooked white rice and some smoked sausage...turned out great. If the chicken hadn't been frozen, I would have tried the recipe as written; I will do that next time because it sounds wonderful. Thank you for this delicious, versatile recipe!
