Monday Menu Highlight

Hey All! I'm finally trying to get fully back into the blogging...trying being the key word. Anyway, it's been a while since I've done a Monday Menu Highlight. Our eating habits have changed some since the boys moved in with us, I'm trying to find recipes they like and ones that don't destroy my cholesterol-lowering effort. I'm not doing as well with my low-cholesterol diet, but I'm trying. One recipe that fits my diet AND one that the boys absolutely love is...

Chicken Taco Chili

I found this recipe last year on this blog.  It's a weight watcher recipe, so if you keep track that way, you can check out the points there (the recipe is originally from SkinnyTaste - one of my favorite recipe sites!). Here's my adaptation of the recipe:

1 onion, chopped
1 16-oz can black beans, rinsed
2 8-oz can tomato sauce
10 oz package frozen corn kernels (used 2 small cans of corn kernels)
1 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies (used a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes)
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts OR 1 lb of ground turkey
Ms. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning (I used this instead of the other seasonings listed at the other blogs)
Shredded cheese (for topping)
Sour Cream (for topping)


Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, and seasoning in a slow cooker. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Top with cheese and sour cream.
**If using ground turkey, brown and then add to the crockpot with all other ingredients. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours.

The boys seriously love this! They ask for it every week! And, I generally don't like chili, but I really like this recipe! 

Thanks for stopping by!
