Chipolte Chicken

14 oz can Rotel
15 oz can kidney or black beans (rinsed and drained. Since I doubled recipe, I used one can of each.)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried, crushed oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
3/4 cup canned chicken broth
Reduced fat shredded Mexican style cheese (or your choice cheese)

Put rotel, beans, chili powder, salt, oregano, and pepper in crock pot. Stir well. Add chicken and broth. Cover and cook on low all day. Late in day, when chicken is done, take chicken out and shred with forks then put back in crock pot. Before serving, scoop out most of liquid from crock pot. (I left just a little but not too much or else your burrito is runny.)

Get low calorie large size tortillas and make some white rice. Fill warm tortilla with rice, then chicken mixture, and add salsa, sour cream or guacamole, and salt/pepper to taste. Yummy!
