1-1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, chicken thighs, or a mix, boneless and skinless
1 (14.5 ounce) can tomatoes, diced
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth, plus more as needed
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

hot sauce, to taste

Step 1

In a large slow cooker, combine the chicken, the tomatoes and their juices, the chicken broth, the chili powder, the salt, and the cumin. The chicken needs to be fully covered with liquid, so add additional broth as needed.

Step 2

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 3-4 hours.

Step 3

Stir in the beans, rice, and corn.

Step 4

Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Check on the rice a few times during the last hour of cooking. Add more broth if the mixture seems dry.

Step 5

Use 2 forks to shred the chicken.

Step 6

Serve with your favorite toppings.
