This is what I made for supper tonight and it was FANTASTIC! This is Suzanne's Recipe and the original recipe just for reference sake. I kind of combined the two so this is "my" recipe:

2-3 cups of cooked chicken, chopped small
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of corn, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 oz) can of tomato sauce
1/2 cup of Pace Picante' Sauce (mild)
3-4 cups of Chicken broth
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp paprika

Put the chicken, beans, corn tomato sauce and salsa into a crock pot. Cover with enough broth to reach your desired consistency. I used about 3-4 cups because I wanted mine to be between a thick stew and a soup. Add the seasonings and give it all a good stir. Heat on high until bubbly (about 3 hours) and then reduce heat to low and simmer until ready to serve.

This was awesome with some homemade cornbread. Ya-ya had a little with some cheese and sour cream, but I thought it was fantastic just plain. It didn't even need salt. Yummers!
