So … since you’ve probably read in my BIO, my life is exceptionally easier since dusting off the old crock pot and putting it to good use.
I am obsessed (by that I mean I could make this recipe every day, really.) with this recipe. Two reasons why:
1. It’s probably THE easiest thing I’ve ever made and there are many ways to eat it.
2. My boyfriend gave it two thumbs up, saying it was the best burrito he’s EVER had. Those words never come out of his mouth when referring to my cooking.
So here’s the delish dish found on the Larson Lingo Blog:
- Bag of frozen Chicken Breast Tenderloins (2.5-3lb bag)
- 8 oz. block of cream cheese (don't use Fat Free! 1/3 less fat or regular is fine)
- Can of Black Beans, drained & rinsed.
- Can of Corn, drained.
- Can of Rotel
-Put frozen chicken in the crock pot
-Put Cream cheese on top of the chicken
-Pour in the Black Beans (make sure they are drained and rinsed), drained corn and Rotel
-Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
I put all the ingredients in the crock pot before I leave for work in the morning and when I get home I turn the crock pot off for about 30 minutes. The chicken starts to shred on its own and I shred the rest.
I make brown rice and either add lettuce for a salad or add to tortillas for yummy burritos.
There is usually a generous amount left which is perfect for leftovers or lunches the next day.
Here’s how it can make your life noticeably easier, whether your everyday life is busy like mine, or you are moving and want a good, healthy meal.
- Like I mentioned, I start this meal in the morning before I walk out the door. In fact, it took me about 3 minutes this morning to dump in the ingredients and turn it on low. Some days I go to the gym after work, so when I get home I have a healthy and already-made meal waiting for me.
- When moving, transport the crock pot and ingredients, in your own vehicle to your new home. When you get there, start the meal right away and let it sit all day while you are arranging and unpacking. That evening, when you’re tired and hungry and don’t want to look at another box, take comfort in knowing this great meal awaits you. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
Stay tuned for future posts, especially on how to create healthy and EASY meals. I’m not sure if you’ve caught on but for me, the easier the recipe, the better.
