I’ve got yet another nummy crockpot meal for you today! This one has a little spice to it, too! This one was Pinterest find, but it actually comes straight from the Kraft website!

Try It Tex Mex Chicken (1)

 

Here’s what you need:

~1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch-wide strips (I actually just used some shredded chicken I had prepped and frozen a few weeks ago and it was tasty!)

~2 Tbsp. (about 1/2 of 1-oz. pkg.) TACO BELL® Taco Seasoning Mix

~2 Tbsp. flour

~1 each green and red pepper, cut into 1-inch-wide strips (again, I used some frozen I prepped a few weeks ago!)

~1 cup frozen corn (I had a bag of southwest corn, pepper, and bean mix that I hadn’t used yet, so I threw that in there instead)

~1-1/2 cups TACO BELL® Thick & Chunky Salsa (I used Newman’s Own; just a personal preference)

~2 cups hot cooked long-grain white rice (yeah, we don’t do white rice; I used brown)

~1/2 cup KRAFT Mexican Style Finely Shredded Four Cheese

 

 

First, coat your chicken with the taco seasoning mix and flour in your slow cooker.

Then, add the veggies and salsa and mix well. Cover with lid and cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours (or on HIGH 3 to 4 hours).

When time’s up, stir the contents! Serve over rice and cheese.

I really liked this, but Huff the Hubs wasn’t too impressed. He said he likes my Mexican casserole better. Though I liked this because of the ease! Have you ever tried this before? What were your results? Share in the comments below!

Last week, I saw a video making the rounds on Facebook that showed a yummy apple cobbler-like recipe. It only had three ingredients and cooked in the slow cooker (which is awesome for a lazy cooker such as myself). So I decided to try it out!

Here’s what you need:

Try It Apple Slow Cooker (1)

~2, 20-ounce cans of apple pie filling

~1 box spice cake mix

~8 oz butter (two sticks)

 

First, drop the pie filling in the slow cooker and stir.

Then, pour the cake mix on top and plop the butter on top of that.

Cook on high for 2-2 1/2 hours. Then, top with ice cream and enjoy!

This was really good! My ONLY complaint was that it was reeeeeaaaally buttery. Can you see the butter in the picture above? I think next time I’ll use a tad less butter. Like maybe 1 1/2 sticks instead of 2.

 

Have you ever made this before? Did you like it? Have you made it with different pie fillings? Share in the comments below!
