Chicken and Spicy Bean Tacos

Chicken Crockpot Meal
Ingredients:

4 boneless chicken breast
1 can of Mexican style tomatoes
1 can of green chilies
1 can of red kidney beans or black beans
1 Tbs of Olive Oil or any other type of oil you like
12 corn tortillas - soft or hard

Rub for chicken: 
2-3 Tbs of Olive oil or any other type of oil you like
1 Tbs of chili powder
3/4 tsp of Cumin
1 tsp of tumeric
1 tsp of fajita seasoning (optional)
1 tsp of mesquite seasoning  (optional)
1/2 tsp of ground ginger
1/2 tsp of ground pepper
1/2 tsp of sweet ginger garlic (optional)
1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (optional)

  • Rub the crock pot all over with the oil or you can spray it with your favorite oil spray. 
  • Add in the crock pot Mexican style tomatoes, green chilies, and beans.  
  • Rub the chicken breast with oil all over front and back. 
  • Mix all the spices together and rub all over on both sides of the chicken breast - use generously so all of the chicken is coated.  
  • Put the chicken breast in the crock pot with the tomato and bean mixture cooking on high for 2-3 hours until the chicken is done.  If you start with half frozen chicken make sure it is cooked all the way through. 
  • Take the chicken when done and make thin or medium size slices.  I use a slotted spoon to remove the bean and tomato mixture for serving so it is not too juicy for the filling.
  • Grill your soft tortillas in a small amount of hot oil or warm your hard shells prior to serving.
  • Fill the tortillas with both the chicken and mixture.  
  • Top with sour cream, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, black olives and/or hot sauce.  Chances are you won't need any hot sauce because the flavor is out of this world!  

Enjoy!!
