Freezer to Crockpot Santa Fe Chicken

I have recently found a love of Mexican inspired food.  I have also found this type of meal is wonderful when going from freezer to crockpot.

I am hoping this meal is as good as it sounds!

Santa Fe Chicken 
Slightly Modified from Santa Fe Chicken Recipe from Budget101  
(a great place when looking for freezer to crockpot recipes so check it out!)

Shopping List:
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 red pepper
1/2 onion
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tbsp cilantro
small package frozen corn
1 can black beans
1 medium sized jar of salsa

0: Get a gallon size freezer bag and write out the crock pot directions and serving suggestions (see below) onto the bag.
1: Chop the red pepper.
2: Chop the onion.  You only need half, so you may decide to put the rest of the onion in something else or freeze it for future use.
3: Mix all ingredients in a gallon size freezer bag. 
4: Get as much air out of the bag as you can.  Flatten the bag and freeze it.
5: When ready to cook, thaw in the fridge overnight.

Crock Pot Directions: Cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or low for 6 - 8 hours.  

Serving suggestions: Serve over rice.
