Make Something Monday

Today I'm going to show off a recipe that I used one night as a taco and the next night I took the chicken mix and made a Round 2 Recipe (shout out to Sandra Lee for that name) of Enchiladas. I'm horrible I make a meal and Rick and I will eat a good amount but of course the kids eat a little then I have this meal left over, now left overs are not a huge hit in my house. I usually take left overs to the babysitter but since we don't go to the babysitters a lot these days I'm left eating the left overs myself :(. So when I made this Mexican Corn and Bean Chicken in the crockpot I found the BEST of two meals!

What You Need:

4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1 (16 oz) jar Mexican salsa
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 (11 oz) can Mexican corn
1 (15 oz) can pinto beans

How to Make It:

Place the chicken and salsa into the bottom of the crock pot.
Add the garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Cover and cook on low 4 hours.
Remove the chicken and allow cooling slightly.
Shred the chicken.
Add the chicken back to the crock pot.
Cover and cook on low 2 hours.
Stir in the corn and beans.
Cover and continue cooking 1 hour.

Tip: Make this a real Mexican meal by adding tortilla chips before serving. Top with sour cream or guacamole as a garnish.

I made this and used as a filling for tacos!

For this I used the filling for a sour cream enchilada. Of course I didn't have taco season so I used chili mix (LOL) added sour cream and cheese! I poured it over the top baked it at 350 for 25 minutes. I used fat free sour cream and 96% Fat Free Whole Wheat Tortillas.

ALEXIS NOTE: Make sure to use a crockpot liner they are cheap and they save you a headache of cleaning your crockpot! You'll love them I promise!!!

Enjoy I hope you make it and love it like I did! I'm also going to share this for Crockpot Wednesday!



  1. That looks good! (My kids wouldn't eat either one though.) I haven't actually cooked a meal in a week. I've been a bad blogger and a bad wife/mommy.

  2. Holy chimoley, that looks amazing!!! my son would eat it straight from the pot.

  3. I love the Round 1 and 2 meals. My family is not big on leftovers... I have a lot in the fridge that need thrown away right now :( Any way to get more out of your food is great with me. I'm all about saving money :)

  4. Yummy and simple! Another great idea to use up some of my pheasant.....I just need to cook it up and I dread that part! LOL!

  5. Wow a great way to make one meal out of two.. yeah..

    Have a great week Poser..

  6. There you go. I'll bet they didn't even know it was leftovers.

  7. We have the same problem at our house...getting our kids to eat leftovers never works.

    These recipes look amazing and you know how much I love Mexican so I will def. have to try them!

  8. I am going to try this. I do the Salsa Chicken from "that" recipe book I won on your blog. This one sounds similar but the spices sound really good. I too will use the leftovers to make something else with them.

  9. i left you something on my blog

    please check it out

  10. You are so good! Love the idea of using it for two meals. Looks and sound delicious. What am I saying ALL that you share is delicious!! Have a great week my friend!!

  11. More yummy food :) love it

  12. Oooh, a crock pot liner? Never thought of that! And I use mine at least 3 times a week if not more. Thank you so much for that tip!

    Food looks great, too! :-)
