"look what I can do, mommy!"
This isn't actually what I wore today. Aren't you disappointed. Never fear, I didn't go to the zoo nekkid - I even took pictures, but you'll just have to live in suspense until I decide to put them up. Cruel aren't I?      Don't you love how I mixed it up with my zebra print shoes and snake print bag. I like living life on the wild side, let me tell you.         And have you ever seen such a cutie pie? I tried to crop him out of the pic, I really did, but I just couldn't do it. I mean, he's too cute for words. Right. And really, you need something cuter than me to look at sometimes, right? Right. So, enjoy his adorableness. And then enjoy you some good food.

I got this crockpot recipe from a good friend and it is literally the easiest meal ever in the entire universe. If you enjoy mexican food, this is awesome. It is also waist-line friendly.

You will need:
chicken breasts - I use the frozen chicken breasts, usually just two although the recipe calls for four.
1 can black beans
1 can corn
1 jar salsa
rice or tortillas
sour cream, olives, guacamole, shredded cheese, and/or tomatoes to taste

Start by putting half the salsa in the bottom of the crock pot.

Add Chicken breasts.

Drain and pour in corn and black beans.

Cover with remaining salsa.

Cover and cook on high for at least 4 hours if you used frozen chicken or on low for 2 hours if you used thawed chicken. You can either leave the chicken breasts whole or shred them with a fork during the cooking.

Cook rice according to package directions or use tortillas depending on what you like.

Add cheese, sour cream, black olives, tomatoes, guacamole, jalapenos, whatever you like  and eat!
Ridiculously easy, right?

What is your fave quickie meal?
