One of the drawbacks for me cooking every night is the perceived notion of the amount of time it takes. Sure I have my favorite quick meals but I like a little variety too. I get help with that with my slow cooker and with RO*TEL. This quick take on enchiladas is perfect for those cold nights and when you want something comforting quick. Let the chicken cook all day with onions and RO*TEL in the slow cooker, then a quick throw together, melt the cheese and voilà, you have a perfect comfort meal the entire family will love.
Whenever I’m shopping at Walmart, I always pick up extra cans of RO*TEL for my pantry for just this purpose. It can add spice and variety to practically any dish. You can find more easy to make recipes to keep you warm at this link: Yes You Can Recipes!
If you’re like me, cutting onions is one of my hated things to do. But I found the perfect kitchen hack to keep you from shedding those tears when cutting them. Bread. Yes, bread.
Take a piece of bread between your teeth and cut away. It works for me! And I had my friend Michelle be my model to test it out for you too. It worked!
