Crock Pot Week: Day 3

Today I was ambitious and made dinner and dessert in the crock pot!
First up, dinner was a spicy chicken breast. This recipe has been one of my favorites so far and I will definitely make it again.

Chicken and spicy black bean tacos

1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained (15 oz)
1 can of tomatoes with green chillis such as RoTel, (10oz)
1 1/2 teaspoons chilli powder
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1 package chicken
Olive oil
Tortillas and taco toppings of your liking

Drain and rinse the black beans, drain the can of RoTel and pour into the crock pot.
In a bowl toss chicken in spices and small amount of olive oil until the chicken is coated. Place on top of beans and tomatoes in crock pot.
Set the crock pot on high for 1 3/4 hours.
Once cooked remove from crock pot and enjoy with tortillas and taco toppings!

Now for Dessert!

Chocolate Pudding Cake

1 large sized box instant chocolate pudding
3 cups of milk
1 box of chocolate cake mix and the ingredients to prepare it

Whisk together the pudding mix and the milk in the crockpot. Prepared the cake mix according to the box instructions and CAREFULLY pour on top of the pudding mixture. Cook on high for 1 1/2 hours. Mine actually took about 2 hours to cook all the way through.

This was kinda like a cheap imitator of one of those molten chocolate cakes.
The cake overall was pretty good, I definitely enjoyed the cake/ pudding combo in my mouth.
