PHOENIX -- If you’re on Facebook, you may have noticed a new group gaining a lot of popularity.  It’s called the Crock Pot Girls, a group of women in Texas who came together just to create a forum to share recipes.

Since they began on Aug. 19, the group has garnered more than a million “likes.” Now, their popularity is rubbing off on a local Facebook group called the Funky Freezer Girls. Jackie Wheeler, who started the group, joined Tess and Yetta to share a little bit about how the group works and an easy recipe for those looking to get started.

Chicken and Bean Tacos (recipe shared by Jen Spencer)

Ingredients:
1-1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 6)
3 Tbsp. taco seasoning mix
1 can (4-1/2 oz.) chopped green chiles, undrained (omit if you’re not a fan)
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. crushed coriander seed
1 can (9 oz.) beans – I like to do black beans, but you can also use cannellini, butter or pinto beans
Taco shells or tortillas
Desired toppings, like shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, etc.

Instructions:
1. Place the chicken in your slow cooker (3-1/2 to 4 quart size). Sprinkle with taco seasoning mix and top with green chiles.

2. Mix tomato sauce, cumin and coriander in a bowl and then pour over chicken.

3. Top with beans.

4. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.

5. Shred chicken in cooker and mix with beans.

6. Serve as you like! Soft tortillas or crunchy – or even with chips like nachos.
