Crockpot Tex-Mex Chicken and Beans

I just love my crock pot, and especially these last few weeks my crock pot has really come in handy.  I love to use recipes that call for frozen chicken, because I just stick the chicken in the crock pot before I leave for work, and by the time I come home its just falls apart and is ready to eat.

I had a ton of beans in my cabinet that, I wanted to use and my boyfriend was craving Mexican food.  I remember seeing a post on Pinterest for Tex-Mex chicken in the crock pot and decided I would give it a shot.  It turned out awesome, and it made A LOT... I had leftovers all week which was perfect for me to take to work.
