Easy Crock Pot

I tried this recipe tonight and it was a hit! It also made enough to feed a small army, so we will be having it tomorrow night, too! Tonight I served it over rice. Tomorrow, I think we'll put it in soft tortillas. The best part is that it's an easy crockpot recipe!!
4-5 boneless chicken breasts
1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans
1 (15 ounce) can corn
1 (15 ounce) jar salsa, any kind
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1. Take 4-5 frozen, yes, frozen, boneless chicken breasts put into crock pot.
2. add 1 can of black beans, drained, 1 jar of salsa, 1 can of corn drained.
3. Keep in crock pot on high for about 4-5 hours or until chicken is cooked.
4. Add 1 package of cream cheese (just throw it on top!) and let sit for about 1/2 hour.
5. All done and enjoy!

Sweet Pork

2 lb pork
3 cans coke (not diet)
1/4 c brown sugar
dash garlic salt
1/4 c water
1 can sliced green chiles
3/4 can enchilada sauce (red, Old El Paso brand, whatever spiciness you prefer, I used mild)
1 c brown sugar Put the pork in a heavy duty ziploc bag to marinade.
Add about a can and a half of coke and about 1/4c of brown sugar. Marinade for a few hours or overnight. Drain marinade and put pork, 1/2 can of coke, water, and garlic salt in crock pot on high for about 3-4 hours (or until it shreds easily, but don't let it get too dry). Remove pork from crock pot and drain any liquid left in the pot. Shred pork. In a food processor or blender, blend 1/2 can coke, chilies, enchilada sauce, and remaining brown sugar (about a cup, you can add a little more or less to taste). If it looks too thick, add more coke little by little. Put shredded pork and sauce in crockpot and cook on low for 2 hours. That's it!
