Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

Southwestern Chicken and Bean Stew

The diet Levi and Brian are on - which is essentially a sugar busters diet - means I have been making a lot of soups.

Beans - a staple in a lot of soups - are a good source of protein and fiber.

1 cup dried pinto beans
2 lb. cut-up frying chicken, skin removed
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup salsa
1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth (low sodium)
1 (4.5 oz.) can chopped green chiles
1 tsp. cumin
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Place beans in medium bowl; add enough water to cover. Let stand overnight to soak.

Cook chicken; cool. Remove meat from bones.

Drain beans, discard water. Place beans, cooked chicken and all remaining ingredients (except cilantro) into crock pot. Mix well.

Cover, cook on low setting for 5-6 hours.

Add cilantro; mix well.
