I'm gonna hook you up with a meal that is not only easy, but it's so easy that it gives you time to feed an entire family and get your love on BEFORE dinner. Now, I know I haven't got a family to feed, which means I'll be using my leftovers to make a casserole (and I'll be sure to share that recipe with you guys), but I'm just saying, if I did, I'd have had them fed.
Have you all guessed where I am going with this post? Crock pot, people! Now, my crock pot and I have had our differences, but this year, we're reunited....and it feels so good. I'm learning to use this darn thing and well, I figured: what better way to start than to make this crock pot help me get laid?
I'm making salsa chicken which will be the perfect base for delicious tacos! Now I know what you might be thinking: tacos are not a sexy food! But that's why we are taking care of the love before the dinner. That, and honestly, it's so hard to get it on with a full stomach. So if you have sex before dinner, you can eat your heart out!
I am happy to report that I did, in fact, get some nookie in before dinner. And it was good sex. Early evening bedroom sex...it's just never a bad thing. Isn't there something more satisfying about dinner if you've had an orgasm beforehand? I think so. I had a little more energy because it was before dinner, and also it was nice knowing I could relax because dinner was all but taken care of. *wink wink*
Now to the recipe....
So, in the morning, load up your crock pot with these ingredients:
2 pounds boneless chicken (give or take), a cup of beans, a jar (2 cups) salsa, 2 cups corn, a tablespoon of chili powder and a tablespoon of cumin.
Oh, and I added a half a cup of water because I lost my nerve and wasn't sure it would have enough liquidy goodness.
It will look like this.
Yep. Hodgepodge. Whatevs.
Put the lid on and put it on low and forgidaboutit. (Depending on how you read that word, you might have seen the word "tit" stand out the prominently. Just me? Hehe.)
Now, becasue I am impatient and because I don't fully trust my crockpot, after four hours, I turned it up to high. I couldn't help it. But it worked out. I would venture to say you could go either way on this point. I'm just being honest.
So, the deal is: cook it on low for 8 hours...or cook it on low for 4 hours and then crank it up the last few.
Either way, hopefully you will get this!
When it's all said and done, go ahead season it to taste. A little salt and pepper will go a long way.
Then, serve as tacos!
I did mine with some onions, cabbage, salsa verde and sour cream. Perfection.
Crock Pot Salsa Chicken
Time: All damn day | Makes: A ton | Difficulty: Easy
You Will Need:
A crock pot
Approx. 2 pounds of boneless chicken
1 pint (2 cups) salsa
2 cups frozen corn
1 cup black beans (feel free to use more, or pinto beans if you have them)
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
A few dashes cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper to season
Throw it all in a crock pot, except the salt and pepper. Set on low and let it go all day. If you are inpatient and meddling like me, you might crank it up to high in the second half of cook time, and that would be fine. The chicken should shred easily.
Salt and pepper to taste at the end.
Serve over rice OR put it in taco shells and rejoice. I served mine with salsa verde, cabbage, onion and some sour cream!
