Sloppy Joes Mexican Style
The first night we had it I served it on rice. It looked horrible but boy was it good! The second night I grilled buns and served it like Sloppy Joes. That's what they look like on the left.
So for lack of a better title I'm calling it Sloppy Joes Mexican Style. I considered calling it Sloppy Juans because, you know, Juan is a Mexican name and they're pretty sloppy.
All you need to make this supper (which I am positive will please your kids or grandkids!) is:
* 4 or 5 boneless chicken breasts, still frozen. That's right, I said don't bother to defrost them!
* 1- 15 1/2 oz. can of corn, drained (you can use frozen if you want)
* 1- 15 1/2 oz. jar of Salsa. Use what you prefer - mild, medium, hot...
* 1-8 oz. package of Cream Cheese. I used Light (Half Fat)
* 1 Tbsp. Cumin
Put the frozen chicken breasts in a crockpot (slow cooker) and add all the Black Beans, Corn, Salsa and Cumin.
Turn Crockpot off or to WARM after the 4 or 5 hours is up and add the package of cream cheese. Walk away and let it sit for 20 minutes. The cheese will melt on its own.
Stir before serving. The chicken will fall apart and look almost like pulled chicken.
Serve on rice or toasted buns or in a bowl with a green salad for a side.
In the crockpot ready to cook on HIGH for 4 or 5 hours
Time to add the cream cheese
Done! It looks a bit like Stroganoff when finished
You could also add more at the beginning if you wanted to get fancier (but remember that's adding more work and more time spent on making this dish) - ingredients such as chopped celery, red peppers, hot peppers, green peppers... TexMex spices... let your imagination be your guide. And enjoy!
