What's for dinner? My house smells so good!

I found this really easy recipe for salsa chicken in a slow cooker. It was on the Mostly Homemade Mom blog. I'm going to serve it over rice and corn, with tortillas on the side. The smell is making my mouth water, even though I'm having a bad sinus day and don't feel like eating.

2 cups salsa (I used a jar of mild)
1 can cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1 packet taco seasoning
1 pound chicken pieces (I used skinless, boneless thighs)
1 cup sour cream (I'll cut it to 1/2 cup since I can't eat much dairy)

Combine soup and salsa with taco seasoning in slow cooker. Add chicken, cook on low about six hours. Remove chicken, shred it, and put it back in the sauce with sour cream. Heat through, serve over rice or baked potatoes, or on tortillas.

  • That sounds really good! I made a big pot of stew. Why, Idk. It's too dang hot for stew. I'm babysitting and thought these kids would like it. Only my child does. The others declared it disgusting because it has meat in it, tomatoes, carrots, etc. lol.

  • sounds good. Since dh is out of town for work I don't make huge meals, the kids won't eat it anyway. My dd is over at my mom's so my ds and I are having chicken tenders, corn on the cob and mashed potatoes.

  • Sounds good! We're having leftovers. I refuse to cook again until the food is eaten, lol. It was just too hot today! There are a few different choices, though, so it's all good :)

  • MMMM- sounds good. Not sure what we're having yet. Nothing thawed & the grill is off limits since we will be getting poured on any minute. Might do an egg sandwich for my dau & hubby & I will figure something else out. Enjoy your meal. After the day you've had, you deserve a nice meal. :)

  • DS had leftover chili - I took leftover chicken (cold) and stirred it up with may, ranch, cheese, chopped tomato, and lettuce and put it in a tortilla. Just wish I had put some pepper in it, lol. Side of Sun Chips and I'm happy :)
