    Nicole, thanks for posting this. It's in the crockpot now. The only modifications I made were to ad a 12oz. bag of sw frozen corn, 1 ounce seemed like too small of an amount and I wasen't sure if that was a typo. And I added a can of diced green chili's. Your recipe didn't state weather to drain the beans or not, so I did to be on the safe side and figure I can add more liquid later if needed. I just wish I had some cornbread to go with it, can't wait for dinner tonight.

    Nicole, I also used thighs instead of breasts.. Oh my word it was good I would love it with no meat of all.. My purist husband even loved it.

    You do not have to drain the liquid from the beans. i leave it in. And it is a 12oz bag of frozen corn! I've fixed the typo!
