Trust Me...

What's up with Blogger right now? Buggin

SOOOOOO... its been a while since I posted a recipe. Let's be honest and say it's been a while since I tried a new recipe. Its too hard to cook during the summer when I'm hot.

BUT, I came across this recipe for Bajio Chicken on my new favorite food blog (Chef in Training) and it looked DELISH! I love love love Bajio!

BUT, since I am super lazy I changed it up a bit cause I was NOT tryin to stop at the store on the way home from work, so I just adjusted it to what I had... AND I found the recipe while I was at work and wanted to eat it for dinner {its suppposed to be a crock pot thing} so I changed that a little too

 It was SOOOO good! Even the boys in my house said they LOVED it... SCORE!
Trust me, you'll want to try it! AND its healthy... yummy!

{this is my version, click here for the actual recipe}

5 Chicken Breasts
1 can Rotel
1/4 cup onions finely chopped
1 Tbsp Cumin
1/2 cup Brown sugar
6 oz. Sprite
dash of Cilantro
dash of garlic powder
1 can black beans
1 can corn
shredded cheese
Whatever salad stuff you want
Salad dressing and/or sour cream
Tortillas if you want

{Remember, you can just dump all this stuff in a crock pot and cook it for 4 hours}

I put the whole chicken breasts in a pan with a little oil.
Mix all the ingredients together {minus the veggies}and dump that on top.
Cover and cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked thru
Shred up the chiken using a fork and add half the can of beans

I let that simmer {covered} for about 20 minutes cause I wanted the chicken to soak up the flavors since I didnt use a crock pot.

While that is cooking, get your salad ready with whatever veggies you put in your salad.
I had lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes {fresh from my Tito plant!} and avacado.
I warmed up a tortilla and put it on the bottom of my bowl {thats what they do at Bajio}
Then put the salad on top
Spoon your chicken mixture on, add corn and more beans
Top with cheese, sour cream and dressing {I choose ranch}

AMAZING! I love it... I think Im going to make the crock pot version and just keep the chicken in the fridge for when I want to make a chicken burrito or sandwich, or another salad... it tastes great cold too!

Try it and let me know what you think!
