Crock-pot Sunday!!!!

June 04, 2017 BlessedMillennial 0 Comments

It's finally here, the post we've all be waiting for 😁

As you guys can probably tell, I've been looking forward to this post. 
I always (try to) prepare my Sunday dinner on Saturday night. 
I am learning to be a more diligent wife. 
However that is a post for another time. 

I was super excited to post this because:
1. I love trying new recipes
2. I love my new crock-pot (thanks hubby!) 
3. We live in a very busy time and sometimes fast food because a regular
in the life of millennials. Crock-pot meals give us the balance of work 
and actually having a home cooked meal. 

The crock-pot I use is found in the link in my sidebar. It has a programmable
timer(to avoid coming home to burnt food)!!


Today's Crock pot menu is(drum roll please) Southwest Black Bean Chicken! 
Shout out to my co-worker for the suggestion!

Ingredients(all from Aldi*under $15*): 

1.5 lbs of chicken tenderloins
2 cans of black beans
2 cans of whole sweet corn 
2 cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies
2 packets of dry ranch seasoning
1 lb of baby bella mushrooms
1 block of cream cheese

Ground Cumin
Chili Powder
Minced Garlic 

After rinsing the chicken, lay it flat across the bottom of the crock pot. 

Next drain one can of corn, black beans and tomatoes
(only one can of each, the other cans will provide juice for the sauce).
 Add all of the cans to the pot. 

After rinsing your mushrooms add them to your pot. 

Spice Time!
I never measure my spices! It always seems to come out just right!
Add both packets of ranch first so that they are directly into the juice. 
Next add the cumin, chili powder(as you see fit) with a teaspoon of minced garlic as needed. You may also use garlic powder, I had minced on hand and switched last minute. Last but the most important part of the sauce, add the whole block of cream cheese,

Now just let it cook on low for 8 hours. I usually do 8 hours when I cook with raw meat, just to be safe!!

After 8 hours, you're ready to chow down.

 I am serving this with homemade tortillas. If you guys want to see that process leave a comment and let me know!

Until next time 

Christ, Peace & Naps ✌🏾
