My new favorite recipe for 3 reasons:

  1. it’s good
  2. our 13-month old son will eat it
  3. it’s relatively healthy and super easy
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: slow cooker on Low for 6-8 hours

  • 2 cans (15 oz. each) – black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 oz) – reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (15 oz) – diced tomatoes
  • 1 lb. – boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 jar (8 oz.) – chunky salsa
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup – frozen corn
  • 1 Tbsp – dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp – ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp – pepper
