Yesterday did not feel like spring! It was right under the freezing point most of the day and it snowed all afternoon.
I decided that something warm and hearty would be a perfect dinner!!!
Plus, anytime I can make dinner at 8:00 am and not have to worry about it the rest of the day I’m happy!!!
I used my Ninja for this easy dinner.
pork roast (mine was right at 5 pounds)
2 packets taco seasoning (feel free to make your own – I went the easy route!)
1 can of green chilies
minced garlic (I used about a tablespoon)
chopped onion (I used 1/2 of a large onion)
1 c water
1 can diced tomatoes
Put pork in crock pot. (I put it in frozen.) Mix all of the other ingredients and pour over the pork. Cook on low about 10 hours.
Shred the meat the last hour or so of cooking –
I served this over rice.
You could also eat this in a tortilla with sour cream and cheese which is what Hunter and Chris chose to do. Jordan enjoyed his over rice like me.
Besides being a simple dish, this is nice because it makes PLENTY!!! We love left-overs around here!!!
I love all of the ingredients and mix of flavors in this dish – just remember, don’t hold back on the seasoning!!!
Ingredients: 1 bag of spinach
1/2 c chicken broth
chicken – I used 8 chicken tenders but you could use breast or even things if you like
salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano to taste
dried basil (next time I will use fresh)
4 Roma tomatoes, chopped
green onions, chopped (I used 5)
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray pan with cooking spray.
Put spinach in pan.
Pour chicken broth over spinach. Top with chicken and season liberally!
Sprinkle tomatoes and green onions over chicken.
Cover tightly with foil and cook about 25 minutes. Add cheese and cook 10-15 more minutes depending on the size of your chicken.
The boys liked this a lot – even with Chris gone we ate all but 1 piece of chicken! (Teen age boys love food!)
I think this will be something we have again (it is rare for me to make the same thing more than once) – I think there are lots of ways you could change this up just a bit which I love to do when I cook.
