Tasty Tuesdays

Hi. I plan to update the auction list later this week and stumbled across this idea from Post an easy themed recipe. I'm always looking for new recipes. Sounded fun so I thought I would try it out. Here's an easy crock pot recipe.
Chicken Chili
In the pot place in 2 lbs. boneless chicken, 28 oz diced tomatoes, 1 can black beans, 1 can corn, 1 pkg of chili seasoning. Cook for 8 hours low OR 4 hours high. Serve over rice.
