Whip it Up Wednesday!!
I love dinners that are a piece of cake to put together! Little to no effort is optimal! I reserve these types of recipes for my crazy days. Days were I know I will be running all day long. I love being able to throw a bunch of crap into my crock pot and then at the end of the day have a delicious meal!! It’s genius!!!! Because I have more crazy days than not, I am always on the hunt for easy throw in crap in let it cook meals! I found this yummy recipe for Chicken Chili on Rita’s Recipes. How could you go wrong??! It had chicken, rotel tomatoes, black beans and cream cheese sounded like a winning combination to me! The first time I made this yummy dinner it was fantastic my kids ate it up!!! It was a little thick and it didn’t have much of a “chili texture” although it was delightful. I wanted it to be more consistent with a Chili. So I tweaked the recipe some and loved the outcome! The lazy/easy factor is like a 1 and the deliciousness factor is like a 10!! So that makes this Rockn’ Chicken Chili in my book
Rockin’ Chicken Crock Pot Chili
Adapted from Rita’s Recipes
2 chicken breasts — I just throw them frozen and all
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can chicken broth – this gives it more of a soup consistency
1 pkg frozen corn — I am a corn snob we don’t do canned corn but feel free if you have a can on hand
1 can black beans rinsed — this is the most time consuming part
1 packet dry ranch dressing
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can fire roasted green chilies
1 8 oz cream cheese
Put the chicken in the crock pot.
Top with the tomatoes, corn,
the drained and rinsed beans,
ranch dressing, cumin, and taco seasoning,
stir to combine then top with the cream cheese.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring one or twice to blend in the cheese.
Shred the chicken into large pieces. Garnish with limes, cilantro, avocado, cheese, sour cream and chips!!! Trust me peeps this one is a keeper!!!
|So Easy!! I love it! Just throw this stuff in the crock pot and at the end of the day you have a delicious meal!!!|
What are your classic standbys for crazy nights!!?!?
