Return of the Mexi-Tater

Here’s an easy meal you can throw in the crockpot in 2 minutes. The Mexi-Tater. It can also be used for tacos, taco salads, enchiladas, etc…

-2 frozen chicken breast.
-2/3 of a can of tomato sauce
-Spices including: cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, coriander, cayenne pepper, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
-diced tomatoes
-sliced scallions

Measurements really don’t matter, just use your eyeball. Crank on high for about 5 hours, shred and use as desired. I popped a tater in the microwave and topped it with my chicken mixture, cheese, lettuce, tomato, hot sauce and ranch dressing:

If you don’t like eyeballing it, here’s a fool proof method.

-1 can of Rotel tomatoes undrained
-1 package of taco seasoning

It doesn’t get any easier than this. Perfect for this time of year when we are so busy working, shopping, doing holiday get togethers.

Christmas Weddings, cookies and Thai Chili

That title pretty much sums up my day. This morning I set up the last wedding of 2010 at Cross Creek Ranch:

A beautiful wedding to end the year I’m looking forward to a couple weeks off to regroup and enjoy the holidays. I’ve certainly been enjoying the yummy holiday cookies my mom made. There is nothing better than my mom’s cut out cookies:

I had a couple before dinner and a couple after. Dinner was Thai chili from the January edition of Clean Eating magazine:

Ingredients include: sweet potato, green pepper, red curry paste, cumin, light coconut milk, veggie broth, crushed tomatoes, kidney beans, barley, and scallions. Love a great all veggie meal once in a while. I’m trying to do one veggie meal and one seafood dinner a week.
In other news, I got a new pair of Brooks Glycerin 8 running shoes. I’ve only worn them twice on the treadmill, but so far, I likey. I think tomorrow I will take them to the streets. Back in Florida, and the temps have been in the 70’s the past couple of days. Should make for a great run. See you tomorrow. Maybe one more cookie before bed.
