Slowcooker Chicken and Bean Fry Bread

I made Chicken and Pinto Bean Fry Bread (Gluten Free) this week.

Onto the recipe:

Easy Southwest Shredded Chicken Serves 8

2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or thighs if you prefer)
1/12 cup salsa (I used green salsa)

Place ingredients in slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours on low . Remove chicken when tender to cool and shred. Add some or all of salsa left in the slow cooker to the shredded chicken.

Easy Pinto Beans Serves 8-10

1 pound dry pinto beans
1 chicken bullion cube (gluten free)
2 tablespoons soy sauce (gluten free)
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Place dry pinto beans in slow cooker pot and rise with water. After rinsed cover beans with water and allow to soak overnight.

In the morning rinse beans and cover with fresh water. Add bullion cube, soy sauce, onion powder and garlic powder. Cook on low for 8 hours. Salt and pepper to taste, if desired. I like keeping some of the juice with the beans, you can either keep it or strain it out.

Freeze any leftovers for future meals.

Gluten free Fry Bread* makes about 20

1 package Bob’s Red Mill Wonderful Gluten free Bread Mix
Vegetable oil

Condiments for tacos:
Diced tomatoes
Shredded lettuce
Avocado slices or guacamole
Salsa or Red Hot sauce
Shredded cheese

Pour around ½ inch of oil into a heavy bottomed skillet and heat to medium.

Prepare Bob’s Red Mill Wonderful Gluten free Bread Mix as package directions. When risen turn dough out onto a very well floured (gf) surface. Pat extra flour on top of the dough. If the dough seems too wet pat on more flour. Divide the dough into around 20 pieces and with floured hands roll each into a ball and flatten out.

To test the readiness of the oil place a small piece of dough in and see if it begins to fry right away. When the oil is ready place 2-3 flattened dough pieces into the oil and fry until golden, then flip to the other side. If they brown too fast turn the heat down to medium low (you don’t want the insides doughy).

If your oil gets too low carefully add a bit more and allow it to heat up before you add more dough.

As the fry breads finish store under a towel to keep them warm. Any extra not needed for your tacos can be covered with honey and/or powdered sugar!! Yum.

To assemble:

Place fry bread on plate and cover with chicken and beans and any condiments you thing will make your meal super yummy.

*note- for easy non gluten free fry bread use thawed frozen dough for rolls, pat them out into circles and fry.
