Foodie Friday: Fiesta Chicken


Yay! It is Friday again and that means here at Life in the Cleft we are all about food. Not just any food. We are sharing easy recipes that quickly become family faves. Today we are featuring a recipe that can be easily adapted to your own taste. Here is the version that works for my family.

Fiesta Chicken

2-3 12 oz. cans  chicken (drained)

2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed)

2 cans  Ro-tel tomatoes (do not drain!)

1 can whole kernel corn (drained)

1 pkg. taco seasoning

Add all ingredients into a large skillet and bring to a simmer to thoroughly heat. The longer you cook, the thicker the consitency you will achieve. 

Yes, that is it. I told you…..EASY! Now comes the fun part; choosing how to serve this feast.

My family enjoys eating this as a dip with a dollop of sour cream and tortilla chips.


It is also excellent served over rice and garnished with your choice of shredded cheese.

I took this to our last fellowship meal at church, and let’s just say cleaning up the ‘ole crock pot was easy. Why? There was none left!

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Let us know what variations you added, and how your family liked it.
