By far one of the easiest meals ever. You can add what ever else comes to mind to change it up some.
3 – 4 fresh or frozen chicken breast
2 cans of black beans
1 24 ounce jar of salsa
Place chicken, black beans and salsa in a crock pot and cook on high for 6-8 hours. Shred the chicken and serve over rice. Amazingly delicious. Personally I just eat it topped with a little sour cream and shredded cheese, no rice.
Since I lost my pictures, I borrowed this from my girlfriends website: Laura’s Best Recipes. We both made these last night the only difference is that I don’t yet have a Big Green Egg, so I put the ribs on my gas grill and rolled the ribs around for about 10 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 325°. Remove ribs from grill and place into a baking dish or sheet pan and let cool for five minutes. Slather ribs evenly with sauce, heavily coating the meatier side of the ribs. Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours or until meat falls off the bone. Thank you David
Grandma Dave’s Latin Spiced, Marinaded and Slow-Cooked Ribs
- Baby Backs or St. Louis Style Spare Ribs (Two full slabs)
- Olive oil - ¼ cup
- Latin Spice blend – ¼ to ½ Jar WES Latin Blend
- Honey -2 Tablespoons
- Garlic finely chopped -3 cloves
- Kosher Salt -1 Tablespoon
- Grandma Dave’s BBQ Sauce -½ to 1 bottle (don’t be shy!)
- Rinse and dry baby backs and set aside
- Mix Olive oil with Latin Blend, Honey, Garlic and salt
- Let ribs marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours
- Pre-heat your Big Green Egg Slow-cooker)
- After marinading… Fire up the grill and roll ribs around to develop color and flavor. This will give the ribs that slightly grilled flavor.
- Place ribs in rib rack in center of Big Green Egg
- Cook in the Egg for 3-4 hours – or until meat recedes from the bone. You may test one by cutting off a rib on the end until it the meat appears to be falling off the bone.
- Remove from Egg, cut ribs off of slab and slather in Grandma Dave’s Orange Chipotle BBQ sauce. Place in baking dish that can handle the heat of the egg. Return to egg until sauce begins carmelizing on the ribs… but not too long. The sauce should always go on at the end so it doesn’t get too burned on the ribs.
