  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Old El Paso™ Thick ‘n Chunky salsa
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, rinsed, drained

  2. Mix salsa, beans and corn in 3 1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker. Top with chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 9 hours or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
