Taco Chicken and Mojito Black Beans

I love my lunches with Brandi. We partner to make a quick, healthy, great meal between the two of us!
Today is was my turn to make the bulk of the dish. I made Taco Chicken and Mojito Black Beans.

Mojito Black Beans: 1 cup dry beans, rinsed overnight, boiled for an hour, 1/2 small onion, 1/2 cup Trader Joes Mojito Sauce (I have heard from a reliable Trader Joes source that they don't make it anymore). Yummy!

Taco Chicken (crockpot)
1 pkg (20oz) chicken tenderloins
1/2 pkg low-sodium Taco Bell seasoning packet
1/2 small onion
1/2 large green pepper
1 bottle Chichi's medium salsa.

Put the seasoning on both sides of the chicken, put the rest in the crockpot. Cover with the salsa. Cook on high for 3.5 hours. Shred. Enjoy!
We had them on tortillas. Brandi brought all of our taco toppings. It was yummy. No tip required, and we didn't have to drive anywhere. The makings of a great lunch! Can't wait to taste lunch next time!
