Must make recipe

You know how sometimes you just feel like you're in a cooking rut? You feel like you make the same thing all the time and nothing sounds good to make? That's where I was a few days ago, so I wandered over to, because I feel like everyone is talking about it.

And I found this! I always love a good crockpot meal!

I made a few substitutions....I chopped up 2 tomatoes (next time will do 3) instead of using the canned diced (bc we can't get that here), and instead of all of the spices, I just put in a packet of Taco seasoning. I also didn't use scallions, because I'm still unsure as to what those are exactly. And I only used about 1 lb of chicken.

Here it is!

Last night I served it over rice, and tonight I made tortillas and we just used the leftovers as burrito filling. I'm telling you, this is amazing and delicious!!!!! I rarely ever find a recipe that I want to make over and over again, but this one is definitely a keeper. One thing I simply LOVE about it, is how easy it is!!! Very little chopping or prep work. Also, I love that it is can put it with rice, tortillas, use it as a quesadilla filling, or serve it over tortilla chips and make a taco salad. Leftovers will no longer be boring! Make it, I promise you will like it!

Also, in cooking news this week, look what I did!

Apparently I'm stronger than I thought. I'm thankful that I wasn't hurt when the blade went flying but also sad, because this was seriously my favorite knife!

Daniel cooked on Saturday night, and we had pork, veggie stir fry and was yummy!

Random story.....I hung out with a local friend on Saturday night and she has a car. So she picked me up at my house but made me sit in the back the whole time because she "wasn't skillful." It was pretty awkward, so by the time she took me back home I insisted that it would be okay for me to sit in front, a risk I was willing to take.

I'm off to spin class!!




  1. Scallions are just green onions--just the green part. They are called cong here (first tone) and range from little to large!

  2. Oh my gosh, laura! the random story at the end is so stinkin funny!!! you mean you didn't enjoy riding in the back seat of a car all by yourself when you were supposed to be hanging with a friend?! -Hannah Nof
