Tax Day, Are you Ready? How about some Chicken then?

Well today is tax day … YIKES! I’ve never been one to worry about tax day I usually do my taxes early and take my refund and go on my merry way! Then came this year since working from home and being a “Consultant” I have to pay taxes. So I was prepared I thought, then I did them and as the pay back increased more and more so did my blood pressure and my need to curl into a fetus position. Then the total came … HOLY CRAP I owe as much as a small car. How the HECK did that happen! So let’s just say I’m not doing the best, I’m trying to work different situations to find how I can improve for next year. Pray for me I’m a stress eater!

So now to some good food that is low if fat but NOT in taste! From my NEW favorite website SkinnyTaste. For you Weight Watcher fans this site is amazing with recipes and points. I’m trying to eatless and watch my calories Smile.

Our first adventure down Chicken Lane is Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili which I served over brown rice. It was a little spicy for the kids but great for adults.

Next on the list is another crock pot recipe that was very yummy!!! I served over brown rice with fat free sour cream. Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken


Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken (Weight Watcher)

<p>This was a great dish that cooked all day in the crockpot and was ready when we got home. I topped with fat free sour cream and cilantro.</p>

This recipe had a lot of steps to it but was worth it. The recipe called for this to made on the stove but I threw the chicken part in the crockpot and let it go for a few hours on low. It was perfect and infused the chicken with great taste! Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas with Creamy Salsa Verde.

Happy Monday everyone!


  1. Hey lady!
    I know, I know....I haven't been by in about a 100 years. Trying to get back to visiting all the blogs I used to (and actually writing posts of my own lol)! So glad I stopped by though, you've been quite busy! And all these recipes look amazing...I'm printing them off now and I think I'm going to try the Santa Fe Chicken for dinner! Go you and your weight loss, that's so awesome! I'm back on that wagon too...boy its a rough one to get back on, lol.
    So glad to see you're doing well, and the boys are getting so big! I promise to stop in more often...have a lovely Monday! MUAH! :)

  2. Yum everything looks delish! I make a white bean chili and it's yummy we put them in tortillas love them

  3. I'm making tax day pumpkin/veggie chili in my crock pot! :) We had to pay this year too and it was also a pretty big number. YIKES!!

  4. These all look great! Just found your amazing blog and am a new follower!

  5. We'll soon have lots o'chicken around here.

  6. Love crock pot recipes, these sounds wonderful.

  7. Yummy meals as always... I so wish I lived by you. Got our taxes are all done. Back and spent on taxes for our house. No extra money.. Boo..

  8. I'm a stress eater too, for many years it was the other way around. I did look great although stressed, well not not so good. Hang in there and be strong!

  9. My aunt said that chicken and meat was a luxury during WWII. I think after our tax day, we'll be eating soup beans like they did daily. Being a small business is challenging during tax time:) Thanks for the yummy recipe:)

  10. I hear ya about the tax money. Ours is already spent...on bills. I used to look forward to a return to do some work on the house or maybe a short vaca but now it's gone before we get it. It's sooooo depressing! Blessings, Joanne

  11. Yummy chicken meals and I love using the crock pot, especially in the summer so you don't heat up the whole house.
    Thanks for two more to add to my collection. =)
