Taco Stew

image

I found this recipe on the wildly popular Crock Pot Girls Facebook page. They do a crock pot video on You Tube every Monday. This was their recipe last Monday. I use creamed corn instead of regular or frozen corn.

This is basically a kicked up chilli. It has the best flavor and I’m pretty sure we will be making this instead of regular chilli forever more. It is THAT good!

Taco Stew

1lb cooked & drained ground beef (you can cook with half a chopped onion as well, I prefer with the onion)

1 can Rotel

1 can diced tomatoes

1 can Ranch Style Beans (any flavor)

1 can Ranch Style Pinto Beans

*NOTE* For my friends out east and in the midwest you could use a can of Busch’s southwest flavor grillin beans and then a regular can of pinto beans since you don’t have Ranch Style brand out there.

1 pkg taco seasoning

1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix

1 can creamed corn

Spray inside of crock pot with non stick cooking spray. Add cooked ground beef and all ingredients into crock pot. Cook on low 4-6 hours. I usually turn to ‘Warm’ after five hours. Serve with cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips or Fritos. 🙂

What’s For Dinner?

I’m now at a point in mommyhood where my two oldest go to two different schools and my daughter is in all day school. With sports/activities starting next week I’m going to be using my crock pot A LOT. I’ll share my favorite crock pot recipes along the way. I’m also meeting with a publisher to get a cookbook started…all about fast & easy recipes for families on the go. Just because the day is jam packed doesn’t mean you have to eat unhealthy fast food.

Today I am making sweet n tangy chicken, compliments of Allrecipes.com. I usually end up making a few revisions to every recipe I cook, so it is not exact.  Enjoy!

Please leave a comment below, what are you making for dinner tonight?

Sweet n Tangy Chicken

4-6- boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1- bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
1- can crushed pineapple
1- sweet onion sliced
1- red pepper sliced

Place chicken breasts at bottom of crock pot. Pour sliced onions over top. Pour pineapple and BBQ sauce in. Use spoon to lightly mix together.   Cook on low for 6 hours and during the last hour add your peppers. I add them last or else they will be too mushy.  If this cooks longer than 6 hours the sauce will burn onto your crock pot, but it is okay, just tougher clean up. Serve over white rice and enjoy. 🙂
