September is a busy time of the year. Many of you are trying to adjust to back-to-school schedules, and hey, we get that life gets pretty busy between school and extracurricular activities you’re driving your kids to. Then you’re trying to get family time in on top of it all! Who is exhausted just thinking about it all?
This is where that crock-pot sitting in your pantry comes in handy. Create a healthy dinner with minimal time spent in the kitchen!
Here is the recipe for a simple, healthy, quick crock-pot chili the whole family will love.
Crock-pot White Bean Chicken Chili
4 – 6 chicken breasts, boil and shred into pieces
2 cans great northern white beans (reduced sodium)
1 can black beans (reduced sodium)
1 cup corn (canned, frozen, or from the farmers market)
About 3 – 4 cups salsa
- I get corn from the farmers market, cook it, take it off the stalk and freeze it in plastic bags for use whenever.
- You can use any salsa you would like. Add more or less depending on the consistency you’d like. I typically put a medium salsa in this, however if you or anyone in your family does not like any spice, I would use a mild salsa.
Mix all ingredients together in crock-pot and let sit until warm. For an extra treat, I sometimes add avocado on top right before I eat it!
This recipe is also great to make, freeze and take to work or have on hand when you just don’t have time to make dinner!
