Crockpot cooking is one of my favorites because it’s so easy. I tried a new recipe this weekend: Mexican Crockpot Chicken
(adapted from Spark recipes)
2-3 chicken breasts
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can mexican chili beans
(Do not drain tomatoes or beans)
1 Package Taco Seasoning
1 can black olives
1 can chopped green chiles
Layer chicken in bottom of crock pot. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order written. Do not stir. Cook on low 7-8 hours. Take out chicken and shred. Return chicken to crock pot and stir well. Serve with tortilla chips or on a flour tortilla. Serve with chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and shredded cheese if desired. Extra ingredients are not included in nutritional facts.
Number of Servings: 6
Calories: 220 (before adding extra condiments)
I checked on the crockpot periodically and was worried about how much liquid was still in it. It looked more like chili than what I was imagining. I took the lid off and turned the heat to High to see if that helped–which it did not.
I decided to just led it ride and hope it turned out. About 30 minutes before it was supposed to be done, I took the chicken out and shredded it.
Michael was in charge of the guacamole–this time using just one avocado.
Oh and I also won the lottery. 😉
When I was at the store earlier getting the ingredients for dinner I cashed in my hefty lottery winnings. I noticed in the checkout line that my magazine is gone. 🙁 It’s onto the new month, with a new cover. Oh well…it was cool while it lasted!
