Mexican Crockpot Chicken

I came across this recipe on Mel's blog awhile back.
Talk about DELICIOUS!!! It is the kind of delicious that you can't stop eating.  The kind of delicious you give yourself a gut ache because you keep refilling your plate :)
I switched a few things around in the recipe... for the original go over to Mel's blog!

~Bag of frozen chicken breast tenderloins
~8 oz. package of cream cheese
~Can of Corn
~Can of Rotel
~Can of Pinto Beans (Mel used black beans...equally delish!)
~Good dash of salt and pepper
~1 Tablespoon Cumin

Place your frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of your crockpot.
Add your can of Rotel.
Drain and add your corn.
Add your whole can of beans.
I then placed my block of cream cheese on top of it all.

I cooked it on high for 5 hours.
You could also cook it on low for around 8 hours.

You can either shred your chicken or leave the tenderloins whole.
Here's how I served our Mexican Chicken...
A layer of rice, your mexican chicken, a sprinkle of cumin, dallop of sour cream, cilantro and diced tomatoes.
Absolutely DELICIOUS!!!
I spent the morning putting away most of the kids' summer clothes and getting out their winter ones.
I feel like it is time to do it since October is in just a few days.
However I think I'm a little premature in my efforts
considering the highs will be in the high 80s-low 90s all week.
We'll just keep rotating the same summer outfit until the weather decides
 to cooperate with what season it's supposed to be :)

I also spent part of the morning making baby food for Cade.
Does anyone else do this?
I'll write more on this in the next day or two.

Hope you're enjoying your last Wednesday of September!


  1. Ive seen this recipe on pinterest and need to try it. Yes, I make all my baby food too.

  2. Totally gonna add this to next week's meal plan. Your picture on Instagram looked SO yummy!

  3. Did you get my email about the giveaway? I need your information and pictures because your giveaway is on Sunday!

  4. I LOVE this!! And this looks like it is naturally gluten free! Yay!! :) Thanks for sharing!! :)

  5. sounds similar to a "chicken mess" I make! Yummy!

    I make my own baby food. However Judah boycotted purees and we just held off until he was ready for bite sized food :)

  6. YEAH! So glad you liked it! Isn't it the yummiest & easiest recipe ever?!?!

  7. That looks completely DELISH.

    We're still trying to figure out if it is summer or fall, up here in the Pacific NW, as well.

    Homemade Baby Food. Absolutely! With all 10 of my babies I made their food. Only bought bottles of baby food for traveling and things. I had a little hand crank grinder, and the baby usually ate whatever the rest of the family was eating ... just ground up.

    Hope your week is BLESSED!
