new favorite crockpot recipe

i am at home during the day now (which i have loved) and i was watching the ksl show that comes on at 11 studio 5 - anyway, they were talking about a crockpot recipe that did not sound good, but there was a website of this lady who has a recipe for every day of the year. so i found this on her site: the picture on the site did not look good, but i had all the ingredients already so i thought, why not? 

Creamy black bean salsa chicken:
2 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup salsa
1 can (15 oz) corn, drained
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained
1 pkg taco seasoning
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Place chicken in slow cooker. Pour broth, salsa, corn, beans, and taco seasoning over chicken. Cover and cook on low heat 6-8 hours or on high heat 3-4 hours. Remove chicken and shred. Stir sour cream and cheese into sauce in slow cooker, then put chicken back in. Serve with tortillas, rice, or tortillas or chips. 

~ okay, pete loves this dinner and i did too. i served it with mexican rice and we used the leftovers as a dip with tortilla chips. i am going to make some changes next time: probably a whole cup of sour cream (i realize that is not as healthy, but so tasty) and more cheese - you can never have enough. as for the chicken broth, i don't know if you need that much or any at all because the frozen chicken has enough moisture once it is cooking. plus you can't totally drain the beans and corn.

I have made this recipe except a half jar of salsa and no broth and no sour cream, still quite yummy! But the sour cream addition does sound quite good....
