Crockpot magic

Last Fall, I got bit real hard by the crockpot bug. (that's a real thing) Nate and I eat out way more than we should (we don't eat fast food, though),  but I do honestly try to grocery shop for meals so that we can eat at home. Especially with me working a lot longer hours this upcoming fall, I am going to definitely rely on the crockpot more and more.

Here is one of the easiest and yummiest recipes that I made like once a week last fall and winter.

Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili
(originally a Weight Watchers Recipe)

1 onion, chopped
1 16-oz can black beans
1 16-oz can kidney beans
1 16-oz can tomato sauce
10 oz package frozen corn kernels (or 2 small cans of corn kernels)
2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies or jalapeños
1 can olives (optional, but I love black olives)
1 packet taco seasoning
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
24 0z. (3) boneless skinless chicken breasts
chili peppers, chopped (optional)

Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Also try it topped with avocado, cheese and/or sour cream. Or as Nate loves, over white rice.

Tell me about it, Sister

Hello? It's me, Kales.

No blog posts this summer is probably self explanatory, although that's not an excuse. Plus I got a new job at a Midwifery clinic which has been a really fun/exhausting adventure.

Thank goodness for instagram, making sure my life is documented. Because it sure does feel like time is zooming past at a faster and faster rate.

Alright, blogging To Be Continued...
