It’s Secret Recipe Club time again! This month, I was assigned to Fantastical Sharing of Recipes, a great blog by Sarah, who shares not only her own recipes, but also a good number of recipes from other blogs around the interwebs. Sarah’s got two cute kids and two adorable kitties, and shares lots of great family-friendly meals.
Members of the Secret Recipe Club are assigned a blog each month. Who has who is a secret until reveal day (today!). The mission is to choose a recipe from the assigned blog, make it, and share it!
Sarah’s blog has tons of great recipes! I especially loved looking through them all because she has lots of crock pot recipes, and my crock pot is my best friend lately. I had my eye on 40 Clove Garlic Chicken and Crockpot Spicy Chicken Chili, but in the end I decided to try Sarah’s Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken.
I followed Sarah’s recipe pretty closely, but instead of using pre-made taco seasoning, I made my own spice blend… it’s so easy! The chicken came out great. Super tender and flavorful. I served it over rice, but it would also be great wrapped up in some warm tortillas.
