Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

There are many recipes
but this one is the absolute best ever!!!

Wednesday:

Here are the recipes:
Crock Pot Fajitas

1 small arm roast

1 1/4 C dried pinto beans (rinsed but not soaked)

1 chopped onion

1 can chopped green chilies

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

2 cans Rotel

1/2 C water

2 t chili powder

1 t cumin
garlic salt and pepper

I use those handy dandy crock pot liners for easy clean up. Place a layer of spices on the bottom. Put in roast and sprinkle with more of the spices. Layer beans, onion, and green chilis. Add soup and Rotel. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours. I just shred the meat and serve with tortillas, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, etc. So delicious and so easy!

Chicken Tortilla Soup
from Fix-it-and-Forget-It-Lightly

4 uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 15 oz can black beans undrained

2 15 oz cans Rotel

1 C salsa

14 oz can Tomato Sauce

Cheddar Cheese

Tortilla Chips

Combine all ingredients except for cheese and tortilla chips in your crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Just before serving, remove the chicken breasts and cut into bite size pieces and stir into soup. To serve, add a handful of tortilla chips in each bowl, ladle soup over chips and top with cheese. Enjoy!
Clearly, I'm in the mood for Mexican food. I'm off to make some homemade salsa. Ole!

Joyfully,
Kristi
