Working from home has its perks — like not being too tired to cook (wait, I use that excuse sometimes… anyway…).
Yes, I’m loving our crockpot right now. Set it and forget it! And since I’m home during the day I don’t have to worry about it burning down the house (although there was that one time when I was cooking beans on the stove… again, moving on…).
This has to be one of the easiest and most yummy dishes I’ve made… ever. If your taste buds crave Mexican food, you won’t ever need to go to a restaurant for delicious Mexican-style food again. Oh, and this lasted almost the entire week. Amazing.
Inspired by this recipe, I threw into the slow cooker:
- two pounds of chicken breast (from the Fresh Market — love that the meat comes in brown paper packaging!)
- about 1/4 of the large container of On The Border medium salsa
- 1 package of McCormick original taco seasoning
The chicken cooked on low for about 6 hours, with the occasional stir.
Right before serving, I mixed in one small container of Greek yogurt (you can also use sour cream, but yogurt is better for you!).
Served with rice and black beans!
