I love weekends that have a mix of having fun and also having time to get things done. This weekend was one of them.
Friday after work I went to a baby shower for two friends from work. I absolutely love celebrating babies! There is nothing like celebrating a new mom and her precious baby. I love everything about baby showers!
Saturday there was cleaning and cooking to be done early because the evening was reserved for Girls Night Out to go se some professional bull riders. It’s exciting watching how the bulls are ridden and there is also the fear of watching anyone get hurt. There was a lot of yelling and whooping going on!
We had some good seats!
Sunday I was lucky enough to babysit y adorable niece and watched the Super Bowl. I am not into sports but I love snacks, great commercials and halftime. Only two of these things were awesome this year…the snacks and halftime with Bruno Mars. I absolutely love him! He killed it with his killer moves and awesome band! The commercials left a lot to be desired.
In my many quests to lose weight and be healthy I have found many recipes that even though they are WW friendly they are also just healthy and delicious. These are recipes that I make whether I am watching my weight or not. This recipe is a favorite of mine.
I served the Chicken Taco Chili over brown rice and of course added some Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce over it. YUM!
Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 16-oz can black beans
- 1 16-oz can kidney beans
- 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
- 10 oz package frozen corn kernels
- 2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 24 oz (3-4) boneless skinless chicken breasts
- chili peppers, chopped (optional)
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Top with fresh cilantro. You can serve over rice if you like add sour cream, cheese and whatever other topping you like but remember that if you are doing WW you need to add the extra points.
One serving of this deliciousness is 1 1/4 cup at 3 points (old points) or 5 Points Plus.
Have a fabulous week!
