My good friend, Kath, sent me this awesome recipe that I thought I’d feature this week in our Bargain Meal Segment. It comes in at less than $5/4 depending on where you buy ingredients but her list is from Target last week. Plus, it’s a crockpot meal which I lurve! Thanks, Kath!
Chicken Salsa Surprise
3 Skinless, boneless chicken breasts (most expensive item – can get cheap at costco, aldis….etc)
1 24 oz jar of peach salsa (or any sweet salsa) I got mine on sale at Target
1 can of corn (on sale at Target for 35c)
1 can of black beans (on sale for 50c at Target)
Semi drain the corn and beans and throw them all the ingredients in the crock-pot with some salt and pepper and leave it to cook for 7 – 8 hours.
30 min before you take it out, shred the chicken breast and let it sit for the last 30 min. All the excess juices will be absorbed.
Serve as your wish:
* As a taco/tortilla filling and you add other stuff as your like (great with guac)
* On top of chips
* On bread making a great sandwich …. it is versatile!!!
Each week we feature a meal under $5 which is comprised of buying ingredients from one store. For more such recipes, visit $5 Dollar Dinners.
