Somewhere between work and school and carpool and dating hot men, we moms are also supposed to come up with dinner. That's a pretty tall order most nights. Yeah, yeah, I'm a food blogger and all. I cook for a living and all. But, I can tell you whole heartedly and reassuredly that my 5 o-clock hour looks just like yours. All the little people waiting, and me with not a damn idea of what to serve 'em.
Except, not tonight. Because, early this morning I woke up, tossed some chicken into the crockpot with three other super-simple ingredients and got me-self dinner prepped in 2 minutes flat. Secret: I actually tossed in FROZEN chicken breasts. I totally did! Because I don't even have time to thaw that shit lately. I tell ya, life is just blown up busy sometimes.
Do how'd the fro chick fare? Totally fine. I had a batch of ready-made taco meat in 8 hours. Tender and delicious. No messy micro-defrosting needed!
To drive home the ease and wonderment of this recipe, I want to show you what's in it. It's stuff you've probably already got in your pantry. It's stuff your kids will totally eat. It's stuff that won't break the budget. You ready? Here are the ingredients:
- Mexican Hot Sauce
Oh, and love. Because you will love LOVE luh-huve this recipe. It tastes like what we call "slutty taqueria" food. Just authentic and simple and so so perfect. All of that, without ever having to heat a skillet, bake with foil, or clean up ninety-two posts. Praise.
Here you go, lovely humans. Enjoy this for dinner tonight, Double it so's you haves dinner tomorrow night, and spend more time savoring life that flying through it. We call that Sow Cooker Style, bae.
