Slow Cooker Recipe: Tex-Mex Chicken Stew

Tex-Mex is a blend of Mexican and American cuisines, deriving from the culinary creations of the Tejano people (literally it means Texas). Basically, it seems to be the Americanization of foods considered to be traditionally Mexican. There are whole schools of thought as to what makes something Tex-Mex versus Mexican cuisine – I just know both are very tasty, and I don’t sit around overthinking it.

Notes:

After shredding the chicken, taste the stew. If you feel it needs a bit more seasoning, add some chili seasoning and/or cumin. I found just the salsa, salt, and pepper was enough to season it well. This is just optional, and according to your taste.

This recipe uses 1 pound of chicken which is approximately three normal sized chicken breast. Sometimes you see the ones that look more like the size of a goose or turkey breast though, so go by weight, not by the number of chicken breasts.

This recipe will serve 4 without rice. If you make rice to go with the Tex-Mex chicken stew (recommended) this had 6 servings.

Ham and Potato Casserole Recipe

I am serious about making one for now, and one for later. A freezer meal is an excellent way to have a home cooked meal when you do not have time to cook.

Notes:

• If you are making this ahead as a freezer meal; using a disposable pan, you follow all the instructions including baking and allow to cool completely. Use a Sharpie on the aluminum foil you are wrapping the Ham and Potato Casserole with, or a piece of tape attached to the aluminum foil to write down cooking directions. Pop in the freezer.

• When I make a freezer meal, sometimes I defrost before cooking, and sometimes I pop into the oven still frozen. Doing that means it needs a longer cook time, even when I use my convection oven setting. YMMV of course – but watch the casserole when you have not defrosted a freezer meal or else you could end up serving a very cold, unthawed, dinner.
