Jenna’s post yesterday got me thinking about food. And eating. And the continual challenge of finding the time and energy to get food on the table that doesn’t come from our local Indian food restaurant (or sub shop or pizza place…you get my drift).
While I used to enjoy some cooking, I find it difficult these days to dredge up the energy to prepare something exciting. The recipe below is our favorite, super quick and easy, solution to the dinner dilemma. I posted in a year or so ago, but it’s good enough for a repeat.
Slow cooker chicken tacos
4 frozen chicken breasts
16-24 oz jar of salsa
1 packet of taco seasoning
2 15 oz cans of beans, any type
1 Tablespoon sour cream (optional)
Put first four ingredients in the crock-pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Before serving shred the chicken inside the crockpot, the chicken is so tender it just falls apart. Stir in 1 tablespoon of sour cream and voila… it’s done! Put in a bit of shredded cheese, some chopped tomato and lettuce and you have the tastiest meal ever.
How about the rest of you? What’s your favorite quick meal solution? Share, please! (Abigail’s new favorite phrase, uttered whenever someone else is eating. Especially when her brother has more cake/ice cream/treats left on his plate since he didn’t gobble it up as quickly as she did).
