Crockpot Creations Part 1: Pollo Loco

One of The Hub's favorite things to do is throw a whole bunch of random things in a crockpot and see what happens.  Surprisingly, his concoctions are usually very successful!  I like to call these meals Crockpot Creations.  Today I'm going to share a creation that we made last week and transformed into 3 different meals.  I call this creation, Pollo Loco. You'll need:
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 6 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 1 onion
  • 1 can of corn, drained
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
Directions:  Put first 6 ingredients in a crockpot on low and let cook for at least 6 hours.  Shred chicken with a fork and add in corn and black beans.  Cook for 1 more hour. We ate Pollo Loco for dinner the first night and served it over rice.  The next night we added rice, shredded cheddar, and sour cream and made burritos.  Finally, for breakfast Saturday morning we mixed it in with scrambled eggs and topped with avocados What other ways would you use Pollo Loco?

    Do I need to shred the chicken first?

      nope! after you’ve cooked it for about 4ish hours, it will shred easily with a fork. that is a great question – i will update the directions!

        89 year old father (a HARRY TRUMAN LOVER BECAUSE HE SIGNED THE GI BILL) just mailed back an empty envelope to DNC Debbie Wasserperson Shitz.on the outside, he wrote: "THERE'S MORE OF US THAN OF YOU!"He finally realized with much debate by me that Obama is a proxy of the WerederUnhtaground under the leadership of SDS Bill Ayers…"And they say that you can't teach an old dog new tricks…I'm glad your dad has come around. You must be very proud of him.PS: You're right about both parties moving leftward. Such a pity…

      • אבל זה מה שהיא כתבה!גברים, מהכירות אישית, ברובם אינם בעלי המסמכים וההכרה הרפואית בכך שהם חסרי יכולת להבין תקשורת בלתי מילולית. יש כמה הפרעות, רובן מולדות, שגורמות לזה, אבל רוב הגברים באוכלוסיה בהחלט אינם כאלו. הם בהחלט מודעים ומבינים את שפת הגוף של הזולת, ברמה זו או אחרת.תחזור לדוגמת בית הקפה.

      • Wow DKL,I was wondering when someone on the bloggernacle would crack open the Mac vs. PC debate.Are you sure you wouldn’t rather discuss something tamer and less inflaming of people’s hatreds?Like Abortion or Gays or George Bush?
