I am usually not one to buy "boxed" dinners but this isn't really boxed. I found them recently while venturing down the aisle with all the
seasoning packets. I use to just go past is because I'd make my own but with a little one sometimes it's not that easy and my time isn't what it
use to be. I can still get some things done but not like I use to!!
Well the ones i found recently are these
McCormick Slow Cooker seasoning
They have a few different flavor packets. You add whatever it says on the back and put it in a crock pot/slow cooker and hours later you have a meal.
If you want quick and easy this is perfect.
I did however make it slightly different. I made it per directions and then I layered the mix in a small square casserole dish like a lasagna with
corn tortillas. I layered it like this: chicken mixture, tortilla, mexican cheese blend. I continued that til there was no more room lol The top was
the chicken mixture topped with cheese. I added fresh cilantro when I served it with a side of sour cream.
This came out really good and I even added the black beans like it said. I'm not a beans fan but decided to give it a try since my husband loves
beans. I also used the Rotell canned tomatoes with the lime and cilantro instead of regular diced tomatoes. I like the Rotell tomatoes
dishes like this. I even added some enchilada sauce that i had left over.
It wasn't bad at all. Sure I could make my own seasoning pack and I just might do that next. I never would have put all these things together in a
crock pot, not something i'd usually make period. I really liked layering it like a lasagna with the corn tortillas and cheese. MMMMM.
