Southwest Chicken Dip (crock-pot)


Here is a crock-pot recipe we enjoy during the fall season, it is super easy to make and delicious.

You can add more veggies and spices to your liking. We are simple in my household, so we keep ingredients to a minimum.



2 chicken breasts (fresh or frozen)

1 jar of salsa (whatever hotness you prefer ( blend mine first – I don’t like chunky salsa)

1 can corn (undrained)

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)

1 t. cumin

1 t. onion powder

1/2 pk taco seasoning

1 pkg cream cheese


Put the chicken in the crock pot.

Top with the salsa, corn, the drained and rinsed beans, cumin, onion and chili powders, stir to combine then top with the cream cheese.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring one or twice to blend in the cheese.

Shred the chicken into pieces and serve over tortilla chips, rice.. or in a tortilla.  I prefer blue chips.



BoxyCharm Beauty Subscription Boxes

Being a mother of three, I don’t get to spend much on beauty items for myself. I love makeup and love it when I can snag deals on high quality beauty products.  A friend had told me about BoxyCharm, it’s a monthly subscription for $21 and each box you get around or over $100 worth products. You are sent 5 full size items, all are expensive and high quality products. I have received two boxes from BoxyCharm and I have not been disappointed.

On top of getting great products, you can also earn points to purchase more products by reviewing the products sent (you can earn 50 points each product reviewed), you get 450 points every 3 months your subscribed, and referrals.

Here are the first two boxes I received.

All the products were top notch in this box. I wasn’t too impressed with the stain – I think the stain could of been a little more distinguished after you put it on.
