Using only things I have on-hand, I've just created a "new" recipe and it's cooking slowly as I mark other things off of my list today. I can't wait to eat it later.
Southwest Chicken with Black Beans and Rice1/2 cups broth -- I added 1 teaspoon of Poultry Seasoning and 2 teaspoons of L.B. Jamison's Ham Flavored Soup Base to boiling water. Chicken or Veggie Broth would have been fine, too.
2 teaspoons Cumin
2 teaspoons Oregano
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can water
1 cup rice
1 1/2 cups black beans (best to use canned black beans, drained -- or else everything turns purple)
After spraying my crockpot with non-stick spray, I mixed the broth, seasonings, tomatoes, garlic, and water all together in the base. I stirred in rice and beans. Put frozen chicken breasts on top. Cook on low for 5 - 6 hours. Shred chicken in rice. Serve with a green salad and side of corn.
That's my invention of the week. I hope you enjoy as much as we do.
