More About This Recipe

  • I have a friend that only makes meals that take fifteen minutes or less of preparation. It’s a rule she set for herself years ago as a busy working mom and has stuck by it since. This meal might blow her mind because this Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken took me less than three minutes to prepare. It’s a creamy Mexican inspired dish with chicken, black beans, corn, salsa, and cream cheese. It’s one of my family’s favorites! This Fiesta Chicken is perfect for those busy days where time is short. Just this past Sunday, my whole family was in the car waiting for me as I was throwing the last couple of ingredients in the slow cooker for this meal. As I opened the jar of salsa I tripped on a toy and the salsa ended up all over me. It was in my hair, on my neck...and necklace, and all over my white blouse. I hurried and changed clothes, wiped my neck and tried to carefully wash the salsa out of my hair without completely ruining my curled locks. Satisfied with my quick clean up I jumped into the passenger side of the car and my husband took a whiff and said, "Umm...did you just eat chips and salsa?" Great. I guess my clean up wasn't good enough and we were already too far to turn back. Nothing like having people wonder why they’re craving Mexican food while standing next to me. Awesome. I guess I might have to invite them over for dinner so they can taste how good it is!
