I love a delicious, easy, and cheap recipe and this is no exception! It's super easy--dump it all in and let it cook all day. Plus, the ingredients are all things I keep around anyway.
Crock Pot Salsa Chicken
adapted from : http://makelifedelicious.com/2009/08/crock-pot-salsa-chicken/
1 can chicken
1 can corn
1 can black beans, drained
1 jar salsa
Combine all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low about 6 hours. Shred chicken with fork. Serve over rice or in torillas as soft tacos. Makes 4-6 servings.
Amy's Notes: I used our small crock pot to cook this dish. It barely fit in the crock pot and overflowed a bit, so I would reccommend a normal size crock pot. I also took the lid off for about an hour or two so the chicken would thicken up a bit.

Cilantro Lime Rice
adapted from: http://annies-eats.com/2010/06/10/cilantro-lime-rice/
1 cups white rice
2 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove chopped garlic
Combine the rice and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Set over medium-high heat. Bring to boil, stir briefly, cover and reduce heat to low. Let cook, covered, until water is absorbed and rice if fluffy and tender, 16-18 mins.
While rice is cooking, combine cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, and garlic in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Stif the mixture into cooked rice and fluff with fork.
I must admit, I have no idea how to cook rice over the stove. I always cook my rice in a rice cooker, so I have no advice for cooking rice. Sorry.
I used cilantro I had leftover from another meal that I froze. Also, I am not a fan of my blender, so I chopped the cilantro by hand and mixed it all up with a fork in a bowl.
