Surprise Slow Cooker Success
Good morning, loves! :)
Before I share today’s tasty recipe for What I Ate Wednesday, I want to say thank you to all of you for your love and support yesterday <3
It truly means the world to me. Time and time again ending my blog career has crossed my mind, but blogging is something I love and I will never let anyone take that love away from me. Plus, all of the love I got from you yesterday only solidified that decision :)
It just boggles my mind how people can waste so much energy on hating. Why not spend your energy loving?
I waste no time hating, so let’s get on with it! It’s time for me to share a new recipe I made that I absolutely love and I know you will, too! :)
Last week I decided to pull out my slow cooker and make a comforting stew to warm me up from the cold weather we’ve been getting here in London.
Surprisingly, after just throwing random ingredients from the fridge into the slow cooker, along with a rotisserie chicken, I had an amazing stew that stole my heart! :)
Rotisserie Chicken Mexican Stew
1 rotisserie chicken, pulled apart, deboned, skinned, and shredded
1 – 1.5 lbs. grape tomatoes, pulsed in a blender
1/2 cup favourite salsa (I used Herdez)
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
1/4 cup canned jalapeños, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp italian seasonings or dried herbs
Place all ingredients in your slow cooker and let it simmer! The longer it simmers, the better it gets! :)
Mine got pretty spicy after allowing all of the flavours to mingle together for about five hours, so I topped it will full fat Greek yogurt and avocado to tame it down ;)
Another amazing combination is this stew with a side of avocado toast ;)
What is your favourite slow cooker recipe? Send it my way please! :)
Have you tried avocado toast yet? If not, you’re missing out!
Have you sent me a high five for this week’s High Five Friday yet? If not, well, you should probably get on that ;)
