  • 1 1/2 cups dried beans rinsed (I use black, pinto, or navy, or a combo of the three)
  • 1 1/2 cups mild or medium salsa
  • 2 tablespoons chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1-2 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 an onion chopped (I like red, but any kind is fine)
  • 2 bell peppers cored and chopped (I like red)
  • 2 cups water
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Sour cream and shredded cheese for serving


  1. Put all ingredients (except sour cream and cheese) in the crockpot.
  2. Cook on low 8-10 hours (or on high 5-6 hours).
  3. Shred chicken with two forks, stir, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve topped with sour cream and cheese.
