The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Holly's Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken

I recently added a poll to my blog to see what type of recipes you guys are looking for and many of you have requested slow cooker recipes. So I'm really excited to share this easy Mexican Slow Cooker Chicken with you guys, it only has 5 ingredients!

My friend and co-worker, Holly, passed along this recipe and it's oh so good. Holly's a mom of 4, works and has a social life that puts mine to shame...the definition of a busy cook (and crazy woman). If you're looking for an easy and dependable weeknight recipe this one is for you. Not only is the recipe delicious, but it uses minimal ingredients, is hands off and since I'm not feeding a family of 6 it will pretty much last us the whole week. It's also really good leftover and you can eat the chicken straight up, throw it in a tortilla shell, eat it over rice or make some nachos.

Mexican Slow Cooker Chicken 2

1 package of chicken breasts (approx 1.5-2 lbs)
1 jar of salsa
1 can of black beans
1 can of corn
1/2-1 block low fat cream cheese (I usualy go with 1/2 but if you're feeling indulgent throw the whole block in)
Optional: avocado, tabasco and pico de gallo

Drain black beans and corn (leaving a little liquid) Place chicken, salsa, black beans and corn in slow cooker. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. A half hour before eating stir in cream cheese. 

Serve with tabasco (if you're not feeding children) and avocado and enjoy!
