Today’s dinner is brought to you by the Campbell’s Classic Recipes book. Today we are having Nacho Chicken & Rice Wraps which you make in the crock pot. I’m not sure why I feel the need to tell you about my crock pot recipes except that it is just so rewarding to do a little work in the morning and have a hot yummy dinner ready in the evening with hardly any mess! I had to thaw the chicken in the microwave and didn’t notice that I forgot to plug in the crock pot so I turned it up to high for a couple of hours hopefully it will catch up. Below is the recipe (with my additions and tweaks of course).
2 Cans Campbell’s condensed nacho cheese soup (they call for regular cheddar cheese soup but I find this has more flavor)
1 Cup of Water
2 Cups of Salsa (I use medium and the Meijers all natural thick and chunky which is one of the best salsas I’ve had in a long long time, but if your wimpy then use mild)
1 1/4 cups uncooked regular long-grain brown rice (I think this means not minute I hope so or this won’t be ready until saturday and you could use white too it’s just not as healthy)
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts (I used three big ones) cut into cubes
10 flour tortillas (10 inch)
In a slow cooker combine soup, water, salsa, rice and chicken. Cover and cook on low 7 to 8 hours or until chicken and rice are done. Spoon about one cup rice mixture down center of each tortilla. Fold opposite sides of tortilla over filling, Roll up from bottom. Cut each wrap in half.
I just now looked over and noticed that the dog was trying to bury a piece of gross raw chicken I gave him in the couch cushions; dogs are so gross!! I mean really ranger, did you think I wouldn’t notice the smell of rotting chicken in a couple of weeks?
So yesterday Maddie (the little girl I babysit for) said the funniest thing. She leaned way in to Hunter and said “Hunter I want you to listen carefully to what I say, don’t understand me…I want to marry you because I love you very much.” Oh my gosh!! could the two of them be any cuter? Hunter was watching Clifford the Big Red Dog and it got to his favorite part (the speckles story) he pumped his arm in the air like he was watching a game and went “yah a speckles story” in this high squeaky voice. Oh man for as much as they make me want to scream they sure do make me laugh.
