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.

Ooooh! I am so excited about this!
With my busy schedule, I use my Crock Pot at least 2 times a week. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy our family favorites:

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!

Continental Chicken in the Crock Pot
1 2 1/4 oz package of dried beef

4-6 Whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 10 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup

1/4 C sour cream

Place a layer of dried beef on the bottom of the crock pot. Wrap each chicken breast w/ beef. Mix the soup and sour cream together and pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. You can also use halved chicken breasts if you don't want larger portions. It's easy and elegant at the same time.




Blue Cheese Pork Chops by Dortheri Lenay Bolden
Pork Chops (I like the boneless, thin ones)

Bottle of Blue Cheese Salad Dressing

Two ingredients, what could be simpler? In a crock-pot, place pork chops and season to taste. Pour blue cheese dressing over the top. Place lid on top, set crock-pot to low and cook for 6-8 hours or so, until done. Enjoy!

Joyfully,
Kristi

Those all sound good. I'm saving them on my computer and will definitely give them a try. I have a black bean chicken recipe very similar to one of yours.

Mocha with Linda said...

I'm excited to find a chicken tortilla soup recipe that the chicken's not cooked first!

Tracy said...

Wow, I'm thrilled to see these recipes! They all sound wonderful and I love using my crock pot. I've always hesitated to use those liners thinking they might make the food taste like plastic. I just might have to just try them anyway. Thanks for sharing! = )

Kristi,
6 out of 7 finicky eaters would recommend this for future meals. That is saying a lot for this house. :) The soup was AWESOME!

Lisa said...

What is "dried beef"?

Thanks!

Lisa

Lisa said...

Sorry, I didn't leave a follow up email for the answer to the dried beef question on my last post. Thank you!

Lisa

Kristi said...

Lisa, dried beef is found in the tuna aisle at the grocery store. It looks like giant pepperoni rolled in a small glass can. I use the Hormel brand. I hope that you enjoy the recipe!

Both those pork chops and the fajitas have become staples at my house. Thanks so much for sharing!!!
