Coming up with ideas for dinner is not my favorite thing to do. Somehow though, having a helper makes the preparation of dinner easier! My two year old LOVES to cook dinner with me. He knows when I get home from work its our time in the kitchen. Just this past week we made pizza bagels with mini pepperoni and I let him put the cheese and pepperoni on. He is really good about keeping it on the pan too!
One of the homemade gifts this year was his own Apron. He loved it when he opened it, but in this picture I asked him to wear it so I could take a picture, but he wouldn't smile-- Toy Story was on!
Easy Crockpot Chicken and Salsa
3-4 Chicken Breasts
1 jar of your favorite salsa (I used Pace medium shown here)
1 can of corn (optional)
Cook in the crockpot on low for 6-8 hours. Chicken will be shreddable and excellent as Arroz con Pollo (chicken and rice), tacos, with toppings like cheese and sour cream, on nachos, etc.
This recipe is great because you can vary the taste depending on the salsa use. Green Salsa, Black Bean Salsa, Raspberry Chipotle, etc. You could use instead of salsa, a can or two of Rotel.
Sadly I didn't have time to make beans, so we used Refried beans from our food storage.
