Clean and healthy, this hearty stew recipe could fool even the harshest of health-food critics. and the best part is that you literally dump a few ingredients in the crockpot and walk away. Easy peasy and totally delish!
Clean & Healthy Chicken Tortilla Stew
1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (12 oz-16 oz.) jar of your favorite clean/organic salsa
1 (14 oz. ) can organic black beans, drained
1 pound frozen corn, thawed
1 pound frozen, mixed bell peppers
3 organic, corn tortillas, ripped by hand
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. seasoning salt (I like Everyday Seasoning from Trader Joe's)
Sliced black olives and plain greek yogurt for garnish (optional)
Place the chicken (either raw or still frozen) in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour seasonings and salsa over chicken. Add corn, bell peppers, and corn tortillas.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours.
About 15 minutes before serving, add black beans and use a wooden spoon to break apart the chicken and mix everything up.
Serve garnished with some sliced, black olives and/or a dab of plain greek yogurt in place of sour cream - and your kiddos won't even notice! (wink wink)
