Here's the thing--we moms all need a super-fast-super-yummy crockpot recipe now and again, and we get really sick of the same-o, same-o stash of recipes that we do because we don't have time to think of anything new. I was wasting some of that time that I don't have on Facebook the other day and a friend had requested some food ideas for some-sorta-something, and one of her friends suggested a version of what I made tonight (Thank you Susan's friend!) I wish I had a picture but it was so good, there isn't a scrap left to show you! I threw it together in about ten minutes at about 7:00 this morning. It really didn't do any damage to my "I am not a morning person" psyche to have to do this, and I was so comforted by the fact that I was going home to dinner already cooked. Here it is, in its ridiculous simplicity.
8 skinned, bone-in chicken thighs
2 cans black beans
1 bag frozen corn
1 bottle salsa verde
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 in crockpot. Serve over quinoa, rice, whatever you like, and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
My whole family devoured this. We served ours over quinoa, which is a healthier option than rice or flour-based couscous.
Enjoy! I hope I just made your day a little easier.
