Slow Cooker Mango Chicken Tinga

Slow Cooker Mango Chicken Tinga

By | Chicken, CrockPot, Dairy-Free, Rice Dinners | No Comments

This dish was on my “to make” rotation for a while. I was unsure how it would turn out, but it was a CrockPot meal and I wanted to try it. It actually was pretty tasty! I am always on the look out for easy recipes that are dairy-free for my husband. I found the recipe on the Better Homes and Gardens website. It didn’t have a picture with the recipe so I was unsure how it would turn out, but it doesn’t look too bad – perhaps a yellow plate was a poor choice.   What you need: 1 sweet onion, cut into small wedges 1 mango, seeded, peeled, and diced 2 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breast 3 cloves garlic 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 – 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained 1 – 14.5 oz can reduced-sodium…

Slow Cooker Chicken Tostadas

By | Chicken, CrockPot, easy, mexican | No Comments

This chicken recipe is amazing. It is about as easy as it gets and the end result is flavorful. It shreds amazingly and can be used in a variety of dishes. I have done burritos, tacos, casseroles, and today TOSTADAS!  I love an easy CrockPot recipe that won’t heat up my whole house in the summer. CrockPot recipes are also good when I am at work all day and I can just set it and forget it. We favor chicken at our house so aside from The Best Pot Roast Ever recipe we cook a lot of chicken in our CrockPot. We ate these with a side of black beans. I usually get my black beans from a can, but one day I want to learn how to make them in a pressure cooker. Anyway, here is the CrockPot Chicken Tostadas recipe, Enjoy! What you need: 3-4 boneless and skinless…

The Best Pot Roast Ever! I could not have asked for a better response to this post. Gotta love pinterest. I have been getting emails about how the last post isn’t “linking” very well so you need to search my blog to find it. I am re-posting this recipe on my home page to try and solve this issue. I also updated a few things and have added a “what I do” section after the ingredients. ENJOY! What you need: A 2-5 lb roast. (any kind)  I use a lean cut, about 3 lbs. 1 envelope ranch dressing (dried) I use Hidden Valley brand, not buttermilk 1 envelope Italian dressing   I use Western Family brand. 1 envelope brown gravy mix  I use McCormick brand Potatoes and Carrots  (enough to fill a bottom layer on your CrockPot) I use about 7 or 8 baby red potatoes and a half pound of…
