Tex Mex Chicken and Beans

I posted this in October. I have made this several times since then and we love it. I thought it would be a good recipe to link to for Life As Mom’s Hot and Spicy recipe swap.

We love this chicken and beans recipe. We eat a lot of beans but we like them to be flavorful. A lot of bean recipes are plain. We tend to like the ones that have a lot of seasoning. This recipe is just that. It has really good flavor. You can make this as spicy as you want it by adding more or less chipotle chilies.

It is real easy meal to make. You can place it in the crockpot in the morning and it will be ready for dinner. We served this over rice but it would also be good served with tortillas.

  2. That looks really good. We have started using a lot of beans here. It helps stretch our food budget.

    this recipe sounds great! perfect for the .29 sour cream i scored last week! LOL

    OK so i have already-cooked beans in my freezer… i’m assuming i’d use about 3 cups, and leave out the water? whaddaya think?

  6. I think that should work fine but don’t cook for as long or the beans might get mushy.
