    Black bean salsa chicken

    Jar of salsa(I use great value mild)
    2 cans of black beans
    2 or 3 chicken breast

    I cook it all day on low and shredded it. Makes good burrito's or good just to eat by it's self.

    I use whatever beef is lean and on sale, lol.....

    Used with Ole Xtreme Wellness fajitas, reduced fat sour cream and cheese (along with cilantro, lime juice, and fresh peppers/onions) I can get two 8" fajitas for about 570 calories total. 2 oz of beef, 1 oz cheese, 1 T sour cream per tortilla. I usually just put the plate on the scale, slather on the sour cream, tare, add beef, tare, add cheese. Then fill up with veggies and cilantro....

    My favorite chicken recipe.
    I've made it for family & friends and they loved it!
    I also like to use it for meal prep.

    1 whole chicken - roughly 5lbs (frozen or thawed)
    1 onion
    2 tbsp paprika
    1 tbsp seasoning salt
    1 tbsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp fresh ground pepper
    1 tsp thyme
    extra virgin olive oil
    pinch of cayenne pepper

    Place onion in chicken cavity
    Cover chicken in olive oil
    Combine all spices together and apply liberally to entire chicken
    Place chicken on 4 aluminum balls in crockpot
    Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours

    *Frozen chicken - LOW for 8-10 hours
    **Remove giblets before cooking

    Flank steak
    Salt pepper
    3/4 jar salsa verde over un browned meat
    4-5 hours low until tender

    Save juice from pot. Add back 1/4 jar salsa to brighten flavor.

    I like to carfully remove from crock pot. Wrap in foil with all juices and rest in refrigerator over night. Cold meat will slice great.
