Taco Soup

Many of you may already have this recipe, but I thought I would put it on here just in case. I got this years ago while teaching from my friend Jessica. I believe it is a Weight Watchers recipe and it is insanely easy. It makes a TON and is super yummy too!!


Taco Soup

1 lb ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 can pinto beans
1 can corn
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can Rotel
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz)
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 can water
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg Ranch dressing mix

Brown and drain meat and onion. Mix in ranch and taco seasoning. Add cans and simmer 1 hour. Yes, it is THAT easy! The longest part is probably opening all of the cans. :)

I like to add a little shredded cheese and sour cream to it also. Jessica recently told me that they like to drain off the liquid and serve it over baked potatoes the second night. I will be trying this since we STILL have leftovers. It seriously makes a ton, so plan on having people over or eating on it for a while! Enjoy! :)

Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken

I might have a new favorite EASY chicken dish right here. I pinned this a while back and finally got around to making it last week. It is a Weight Watchers recipe that is DELISH and super easy!!


Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken

Cooking Spray

2/3 cup light honey mustard dressing

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp black pepper

2 tsp dill, freshly chopped

1 medium scallion, finely sliced

1 cup cornflake crumbs

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I halved this recipe)

Preheat oven to 425 and coat a shallow pan with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine honey mustard dressing, salt, pepper, dill and scallions.

Remove 1/3 cup and set aside.
Place cornflake crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken in dressing mixture and then cornflake crumbs. Place in prepared pan. Bake until chicken is golden and no longer pink in center. The recipe said to bake for 15 minutes which was NOT ENOUGH time...I baked for 30 minutes.

Drizzle remaining mixture over chicken breasts and serve.

This really is SO GOOD! The chicken is really moist on the inside, but the topping is crispy and the sauce is fantastic! Enjoy! :)

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

This is another recipe I pinned on Pinterest from SkinnyTaste and let me tell doesn't get much easier than this! Three ingredients in the kind of meal! The best part was that I made it one way one night and used the leftovers to make dinner another way the second night. Love it!!

Crockpot Chicken Tacos
1 envelope Taco Seasoning
6 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa (16 oz)
Garnish with sour cream, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, avacado, onion, and cilantro.

Dump everything into a crock pot and give it a little stir to blend the seasoning with the salsa. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the chicken should shred easily when stirred with a fork.

The first night I used the meat on the homemade tortillas from Kroger (amazing!) and made soft tacos.
The second night, I used all of the same ingredients and made tostadas. Yummy!

It really doesn't get easier or yummier than this! Enjoy! :)
