    Since the ham is already cooked, you just need to heat it thoroughly. I would do 6 hours on low but it can handle 8 easily.

    Easy, easy, easy. Added some frozen corn with an hour left. I also used Newman’s pineapple salsa – gave it a fruity kick. Everyone loved it!

    So, the kids LOVED IT!! I got big “Thumbs Up!” They are really looking forward to having it in burritos later in the week. They only needed one serving, as it was so filling. Served with brown rice and some steam in the bag green beans.
    I used 6 chicken breasts, so next time, I will increase the amount of rice I cook, so that I will have enough for make-overs. I only had a small amount left to have as my lunch tomorrow, but plenty of chicken left.

    Thanks, ladies for the recipe. Made my day so much easier, so that I could work on research and writing. I’ve already printed the Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken recipe. Sounds delish!

    So, trying to use what is in the fridge and pantry to save some money and time, I only had Bush’s Sweet Mesquite black beans. Trying it to see how it tastes. It’s in the crock now, and will add some corn to it later to give it some color. Hopefully it’s a hit. My kids seemed enthusiastic.

    I absolutely loved it! This recipe makes quite a few servings between 4-6 depending on rice.. I served less rice.

    Dustin and Amanda…we love crock cookin’ because it is so easy!! Just throw everything in the pot (chicken is uncooked), turn it on and let it cook low and slow for about 6 hours. Super easy and yummy on a salad, as a taco, burrito, or mixed with chips and cheese for super nachos. Check out the Crockin’ Monday tab under the recipes. Those are some of our favorite things to crock. Happy Crockin’ Y’all!

    do you have to precook the chicken at all or put all the ingredients in there raw? this sounds delish and i want to try it today…im not so familiar *yet* with crockin cookin but i want to be! :)

    I made this today, however it came out super soupy. I drained the black beans, and I guess next time I’ll drain a bit of the salsa. I’m new to the crockpot cooking and perhaps I misunderstood…do you COOK the chicken first before throwing it in the crockpot? I’m thinking yes, but I’m not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I used another’s suggestion and added corn to it…except I cooked the corn (after draining) a little bit by throwing into a frying pan to give it the “burnt or southwest” look.

    I have been making this for a long time, with a couple of minor changes. I always use two cans of beans, well rinsed.
    I use 6 breasts, and I cut the chicken in cubes, (I love my kitchen shears for this!) Then, about an hour before dinner, I add a package of frozen corn, and stir to combine it all.
    I serve over brown rice. (I make enough for 6 servings.)
    THEN…since we are a family of three, I add the rice to the crock pot, and combine it all for an AMAZING second meal of wraps! Yum! A little lettuce, some sour cream, inside a warmed tortilla? Heaven!

    YAY, Lauren…you cROCK! Welcome to the crockin’ family. Love it when I can sneak in some veggies :)

    This was my first crock pot recipe and we loved it! I did add the frozen spinach and extra can of black beans. I also served it with Tostitos Chips and put extra salsa on top. My husband really liked it and he is not a spinach fan!

    I have made this on many occasions, it has become a fast favorite at our house, I do add a little variety to it and will throw in frozen corn just before serving as well.

    I added the package of frozen spinach to this and everyone at the office and house loved it! Then people from the office went home and made it for their families! It was a HUGE success!
