Some of you may know I'm addicted to Pinterest right now. I don't fully understand what all the website is for, but I love looking at all of the random pictures. Some of the pictures have even given me great ideas! For those of you who don't know what Pinterest is, click HERE.
I was scrolling along the other day and came upon a picture with these ingredients:
- Can of Rotel
- Can of corn
- Can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
- 2 frozen chicken breasts
- 8 oz cream cheese
- Packet of dry ranch dressing
- 1 tbspn cumin
- 1tspn onion powder
- 1 tspn chili powder
Cook 6-8 hours, shred chicken, enjoy!
That's all it said. The picture looked amazing, and it seemed simple enough. I memorized the ingredients and went to the store. I remembered everything I needed except for the onion powder. I got garlic powder instead. BUT! I happened to have onion salt, so I went ahead and added 1 tspn garlic powder and then added maybe half a tspn of onion salt. Make sense?
Now, the picture didn't say anything about what to use for broth. After I got home I realized I didn't have any chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, nothing. So I improvised! I used milk. I don't know if that's what you're supposed to do for soups or not, but it worked.
I cut up my chicken into bite sizes and threw everything in my crockpot for about 3 hours and it was delish! The whole family loved it and went back for seconds. I can't wait to make it again so I can improve it!
