Black Bean Salsa Chicken

It is already time for the The Secret Recipe Club, time goes by so fast when we are having fun. It has been fun to be a part of this monthly event. I always look forward to receiving my assignment to find out who I will meet that month and get to pick out one of their recipes to make.  This month I was excited to have Angela's Kitchen as my assignment. Angela has a great blog that is Gluten and Dairy Free, she says "because everyone deserves a cookie", and I sure agree. Although she has many great recipes I choose one that will really stretch the dollars and is very tasty.

Black Bean Salsa Chicken

Miz Helen's Recipe Tips
This is a great recipe that you can do so many different things with. I did add more seasons because we like it spicy. I put one bag in the freezer and cooked the remainder, then I took part of that and made a great Casserole.
Seasons Added
2 tablespoons Chili Powder
2 tablespoons Cumin
2 teaspoons Oregano
Casserole
3 cups cooked rice
4 cups Cooked Black Bean Salsa Chicken (Leftover from the Slow Cooker)
1/2 cup Mexican Blend Cheese
Mix the Rice and the Chicken together
Place in 9X13 oiled baking dish  and sprinkle the cheese on top
Bake 350 until Cheese is melted
Black Bean Salsa Chicken Casserole
Enjoy!

I sure am happy that you stopped by to visit with us today and hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we did. If you would like to be a part of The Secret Recipe Club Link just go to the link and check it out. Hope you have a great day and come back to see us real soon!

  13. That looks great, and I love the casserole variation (we often serve our chili with rice and cheese, yours is a cleaner way of doing it - rather than having three or four containers on the table.
