For every recipe you see me post on this blog, I can promise you there were at least one or two others that I thought would be hits, but instead were major recipe flops.
While I love my slow cooker for chicken, meat, and the occasional vegetarian curry, it does have the tendency to turn some veg dishes into plain old mush. This was clearly evident when a batch of slow cooker broccoli cheddar soup I was sure would be a hit with my cheese loving fam went untouched, leading to me having to dispose of almost an entire slow cooker of overcooked broccoli and gummy cheese stew. Appetizing, I know!
But this chicken – a hit!
Really anything that can be topped with mounds of guacamole and scooped up with way too many to mention tortilla chips can’t be bad. Whoops!
And it can even count as a one bowl meal – black beans, corn, canned tomatoes, and broth turn it into an almost stew-like dish. Serve it plain, over rice, or on top of a salad and load it up with all the taco fixings you can dream of.
Thankfully I have now redeemed myself in the eyes of my family with this slow cooker hit.
