What's Cookin? Salsa Chicken

I am not sure if you guys are even interested in this, but I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of the recipes I make. You see, I am a very novice chef and I feel like if I can make something, you all can too! Let me know if this is something you guys would like me to start posting about regularly and I will make it happen (but only if you agree to share your simple/delish/lovely recipes too!)

Salsa Chicken
Literally the easiest crock pot recipe, ever.

Ingredients (serves 4)
-4 chicken breasts
-24oz Salsa of your choice (keep in mind it gets spicier the longer you cook- I typically choose mild)
-can of black beans
-cheese or sour cream (if you like it- I leave this part out because I'm lactose)

-cover bottom of crock pot with a little bit of salsa
-place two chicken breasts in pot
-pour half of the salsa on top of chicken
-place the last two chicken breasts in the pot
-pour the rest of the salsa on top of chicken (make sure chicken is completely covered with salsa)
-cook on low heat for 8-10 hrs. (if you have used a crock pot before you know they are pretty fool-proof, so if your timing is off a bit you should still be fine!)
-once time is up, drain water from pot and change heat settings to "warm"
-place chicken and salsa on a warm tortilla and add beans, avocado, cheese, etc on top
-roll like a burrito or eat like a taco (depending on size of tortilla) and ENJOY!
