Crock Pot Chicken Tacos with Black Beans, Beer and Cheddar

So it was a normal day then I saw this recipe over at Cassie Craves. And I was done. Sold. Wanted them that very night.  I waited and put them on the menu for the next week.  The day came and I put them in the crock pot and as it goes with crock pot meals, the house was smelling delicious hours before the meal was ready.  Finally dinner time rolled around and we DEVOURED these bad boys. Oh yum yum yum. Gray and I both thought these were just fabulous!!!!!

2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup beer
1 tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 (15 oz) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 cup shredded cheddar
Flour tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, tomato, onion, etc.

Combine the beer with the chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.  Place the chicken in the bottom of the crock pot and pour the beer mixture on top.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Without draining the liquid, shred the chicken and add the black beans to the mixture. Let cook for 15 more minutes the mix in the cheddar cheese, let cook for another 5 to 10 minutes. Serve on top of tortillas with toppings.
