Literally.... what's cooking?
Anyone else feeling like a short order cook some days?
Eve is actually easy unless i'm making something SUPER spicy she eats what we eat. well most of the time i think she's teething and is rejecting food in general right now.
Isaac we're just now getting to eat what's on the table, we basically had to put our foot down and say eat or don't. which is really really hard when he's 3 years old, 3 ft 1" and only 28 pounds. Doc wasn't worried though said his BMI was good.
Ethan.... he'll eat whatever.
So tonight.... yes i know its almost 90....and it was intended to be just for my lunches but DH decided he wanted it too....so its for dinner.
we're having chicken taco soup in the crockpot.
Ethan adores it. isaac we'll we'll find out. and Eve should do well with it.
Chicken Taco Soup
1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle Beer (or chicken broth)
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco Seasoning (or cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and black pepper)
3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
crushed tortilla chips (optional)
1. Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning, and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours.
2. Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.
