kaden sharing his favorite monkey rattle with his best friend simon
Happy Superbowl weekend everybody! In honor of foodie friday (which I think I may have forgot about for the last few weeks...oops!) I thought I would post the yummy recipe that we are making for sunday's game.
1 (approx 1.3 lb) pkg boneless chicken breasts or thighs, or 1 pkg Chicken-less Strips (vegetarian option)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 pkg Taco Seasoning Mix
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
2 (15 oz) cans black beans
1 (15 oz) can corn, or 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
2 cups chicken broth (optional; omit for a thicker stew)
Your choice of toppings:
Fresh chopped tomatoes
Chopped green onions or red onions
Jalapenos or chiles
1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook onions for 5 minutes, or until softened.
2. Add remaining ingredients and heat to boiling. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 1 hour.
3. Remove chicken, shred, and return to pot. Stir and heat through before serving.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Hands-off cooking time: 1 hour
Slow cooker method: Place all ingredients into a crockpot and cook for 5-6 hours on low setting. Remove chicken, shred, and return to crockpot. Stir and heat through before serving.
