i started out with these ingredients:
- 1 can pinto beans (rinse & drain)
- 2 tablespoons chili pepper
- 1/2 bag o frozen corn
- 2 cans of rotel
- 6 chicken bullion cubes to 3 bottles of water so about 7 cups water (we have a water softener)
- 2 chicken breasts--uncooked
i usually slow cook my chicken, but didn't want to take the time. so i boiled the water, threw in the bullion cubes along with the raw chicken. i turned the heat down to a simmer and covered. i left it for about 30 minutes or so. i took the cooked chicken out and shred it--it turned out great!
then i threw everything in..rinsed and drained pinto beans 2 cans of rotel (including juices) 1/2 bag of frozen corn and the shredded chicken. and then added the chili powder. give it a quick stir. i turned up the heat to a boil and then back down to simmer for the rest of the afternoon--put the lid back on and let it go for a couple hours.
the end result! YUMMY! i of course don't eat it plain. pile on the sour cream and cheese, please! we had some nacho doritos so i threw some of those on top, too.
