Chicken Tortilla Stew

This recipe was a little out of my comfort zone. I’m not big on spicy food, vegetables or Mexican cuisine. However I know that by challenging my self to eat clean these types of foods are gonna become fairly common. Luckily once I made this soup and tried it I fell in love. It had such a wonderful texture and was packed with flavor. It was especially easy to make since for once I had all ingredients on hand.


Ingredients:

  • 3 Raw Chicken Breasts
  • 1 (12 oz.) Jar Salsa 
  • 1 lb. Frozen Corn 
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 4 Corn Tortillas (shredded)
  • 2 C. Dried Black Beans (soaked)

Directions:

  1. Place chicken breasts in crock pot.
  2. Pour all ingredients except beans over them.
  3. Cook on high for about 5-6 hours.
  4. Add  beans at the 4 hour mark.

When I made this recipe I was able to use corn that I had bought in bulk at the farmers market, boiled and frozen for out of season use. I also used Sam’s Salsa that I made this summer, but you can use any clean store bought salsa.
