Tickle Your Taste Buds Tuesday

Black Beans, Chicken, and Yellow Rice
This recipe is so easy, cheap and super good. I have to thank my friend Melissa who got this recipe from our friend Bridget and they shared it with me. I of course put my own little twist on it.Why? Well because that's what I do. It's my blog my recipe and my cooking so I can. You can put your own twist on anything I do also. You will want to keep this one is your recipe box it is for sure a go to meal.

1 Whole chicken (or chicken breast or thighs whatever you have/like)
1 bad of yellow rice
1 can of black beans do not drain
1 can of pinto beans drained and rinsed
1 onion
1/2 bell pepper

You can make a 30 Minute chicken and use the meat from that or you can....
Make a crock pot chicken which is what I did. (I actually cooked my chicken on Saturday and we didn't get the chance to use it until Monday night)
To make the crock pot chicken you put the whole chicken in the crock pot with broth or water a little salt and seasoning of your choice. I used chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin. Sprinkle over top and let cook on high until the chicken is falling apart. Once it is cooked shred the chicken and save. If you make the chicken before you make the rest just store in the fridge.

Saute chopped onion and bell pepper once they are cooked down add pinto and black beans and cook until soft and a little mushy.

Cook rice according to package.

Heat chicken I added chicken broth to reheat and make it more moist you can also add more seasoning if the chicken needs it.

That's it. We layered it in the bowl Rice, Chicken, Beans. Steve topped his with sour cream I do not like sour cream so I didn't. You can also garnish with green onions, or cilantro, or salsa. I would have also added a jalapeno to the beans or chicken but Makayla was eating it so I didn't.
Here is a picture of it in the pot! It might be the most photogenic food but it was really good and really easy.
