Mexican Jumping Beans

Ingredients:

  • 1 or 2 onions, diced
  • Chicken or beef – see note below.
  • 2 cans mild Ro-Tel tomatoes diced with green chilies
  • 1 envelope Hidden Valley Ranch dry dressing mix
  • 1 envelope mild taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can seasoned diced tomatoes

  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can cannellini beans
  • 1 can corn kernels
  • Optional – tortilla chips, tortillas, sour cream, chopped scallions, grated cheese, rice.

NOTE: You can use 3 to 4 raw chicken breasts (increases cooking time by a few hours), 2 cans cooked chicken breast, 2 -3 cups cooked chicken, shredded or cooked ground beef. Makes a good vegetarian dish without the chicken or beef. You can also increase the number of cans of beans and/or tomatoes in other flavor varieties to increase servings.

Directions:

Put everything in crockpot in order listed. Stir only once or twice to combine. Cook in crockpot on low setting till raw chicken is cooked about 5 to 6 hours or with cooked meat, about 2 to 3 hours or until heated through.

Serve: Put crushed tortilla chips or rice in bottom of bowl. Ladle bean mixture over. Top with your choice of sour cream, scallions, cheese, etc. Warm tortillas as a side are a good choice as well.
