A few months ago, I misread a recipe. Thank goodness. My mistake ended up making the best 2-day meal I have ever had. Yep, a 2-day meal. By my estimation, that means you only have to cook once but you get 2 completely different meals out of it.
Here's what you'll be serving:
1. Black Bean Salsa Chicken
2. Chicken Taco Soup
But this is all you've got to do (and it takes less than 10 minutes of your time. Even better!):
2-4 chicken breasts (boneless)
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 cup salsa
1 can corn drained
1 can black beans drained
1 pkg Taco seasoning
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup grated cheese (optional...we forgot this one night and still loved it. Since that meant less fat, we do without now. It's great either way).
Cook on low for 5 hours in crockpot.
For Black Bean Salsa chicken: Remove chicken from crockpot. Using a slotted spoon, dish some beans and salsa over the chicken. Serve over rice. We also like to serve a bit of the sauce as a side for those that like a saucier dish.
To the rest of the sauce, add the sour cream and grated cheese (optional). When your black bean salsa chicken meal is finished, chop the leftover chicken into cubes and add it to the sauce. Hello Chicken Taco Soup! Serve with tortilla chips for a scrumptious meal.
One little warning: These meals go fast in our house. To avoid finding yourself with not enough to last 2 meals, you may need to double your recipe, depending on your size of family.
