Yesterday was one of those days when I hung out in sweats all day and didn't put a lick of makeup on my face. Those don't come along very often and you cannot imagine how much I enjoyed it!!!
Around midday, being slightly off due to the time change, I threw the ingredients for Chicken Taco Chili into the crock pot. So, dinner was a breeze! This is one of our favorite dishes and it makes plenty for leftovers.....
CHICKEN TACO CHILI
1 onion, chopped
1 16-oz. can black beans
1 16-oz. can kidney beans
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
2 14.5-oz. cans of diced tomatoes w/chilis (I use Ro-Tel original)
10 oz. frozen corn kernels
1 packet taco seasoning
1 tbsp. cumin
1 tbsp. chili powder
24 oz. (3-4) boneless skinless chicken breasts (frozen is fine!)
chili peppers, chopped (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
sour cream and grated cheese topping (optional)
Combine beans, onions, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in crock pot. Stir to combine. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half an hour before serving, remove chicken and chop/shred. Return chicken to crock pot and stir in; cook for additional 30 minutes. Top with fresh cilantro, sour cream, grated cheese.....we even like crumbled tortilla chips on top. Enjoy!!!
This is super simple to prepare and mighty tasty. And you can't mess it up! I inadvertently only added 1 tsp. of cumin and chili powder yesterday, and it still tasted just fine. So, experiment with it a bit and let me know how it turns out.
Now, back to that pesky time change thing......it's got me and the dogs all messed up, for sure!!! Honestly, it is dark until nearly 8:00 am here.....and light till 8:00 pm. If the weather were warmer, it might make more sense. But, as it stands now, it's more annoying to have to readjust to Daylight Savings Time than anything! Feel free to grumble about it with me.....
