Today was one of those days. You know the kind where you pop out of bed first thing in the morning (or crawl out kicking and screaming) and never stop going.
I had a doctors appointment early this morning, which confirmed that, yes! I do still have a heartbeat. And no! I am not dying any time soon. And that was all good news. The doctor did ask me at one point if I have a lot of stress. I just laughed. I have a husband, children, and I work from home while trying to co-ordinate a whole house renovation that has been going on for three years and shows no signs of ending. Stress isn’t my middle name, it is my salutation.
But this isn’t about me.
I have another recipe to share. It is so easy that I am not sure you could even call it a recipe. It is perfect for days like this when you don’t even have the time to brown things in a pan before your day begins.
This recipe was given to me by our very own Mir. (I hound her mercilessly to find out what she is cooking for dinner and frequently end up making the same thing for my family. Also, she loves it when she tells me some food thing and I type gagging noises, because she doesn’t get enough of that from her kids.)
boneless chicken breast
large jar of salsa
can black beans
corn (frozen or canned)
Put the boneless chicken breast in your crockpot. (I even put it in frozen)
Dump one large jar of salsa (for every 4 breasts)
Drain and rinse one can of black beans and dump in crockpot.
Corn- I usually wait and put this in right before I serve it. It only needs to warm up, not cook.
Turn your crockpot on and leave it there all day. Come back 10 hours later and open the crockpot. Shred up the chicken. Stir it up good.
I serve this in bowls with a side of shredded Mexican cheeses and sour cream. And we eat it with Tostitos.
You could eat it in taco shells, but the kids always crush them and then whine when the pieces fall on their plate. As a general rule I like to avoid whining at the table, unless it is mine.
I love to eat this leftover for lunch the next day wrapped in a soft tortilla. It will thicken up significantly in the refrigerator overnight.
Yes, that is the entire recipe.
