It's official. My new crock pot is the catalyst for this lazy girl dinner. It was one of those days when I was feeling very uninspired by the food selections around me. I wandered into the pantry and started grabbing cans of beans. Kidney, garbanzo, black beans...what else? This is how I cook. Sometimes it comes out fantastic, and other times completely forgettable and not worthy of this blog. Yes, it happens!
This one was worth it and so easy and filling for a family of 6. Lots of leftovers for us, but it was even better the next day. Get out your crock pot and start grabbing.
Tex Mex Pot O' Beans
1 package (1.5 lb.) chicken wings
1 can black beans (15 oz.)
1 can garbanzo beans (15 oz.)
1 can kidney beans (8.75 oz.)
1 can whole kernel corn (15 oz.)
1/2 onions, chopped
1 Tbsp barbecue sauce
1/4 cup thick hot salsa
2 cups chopped kale
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup water
Dump the wings (rinse first) into the crock pot. Drain and rinse all the beans and corn and throw on top of chicken. Follow with the onions, barbecue sauce, salsa, kale, broth and water. Stir to mix, cover and cook on high for at least 4 hours. Then turn down to low for the remaining time. I started cooking on high around 12 noon, until about 4:00 pm. Turned it down to low and it simmered for another hour or so. By then the meat from the wings was falling off. Good stuff!
