Ummmm, I don’t think I’ve cooked a single meal in the last week and a half. Today I tried to meal plan for the week and I looked at my calendar and asked my husband if we still had leftover chili in the fridge. He said that we did, and that was the end of that conversation since I don’t think I’ll be home before 8pm again all week. Tech week for my middle school musical and peak training week. I’m gonna be a lot of fun, let me tell ya.

Sometimes life just gets totally crazy, and my crockpot is seriously my life saver. I don’t know how people live without them. I’m all about the no prep work required recipes. Browning meat? No thank you. I literally want to throw everything in 10 minutes before I leave for work and come home to delicious food. Is that too much to ask?

I very rarely find someone else’s recipe and want to make it 100% as written. It’s just not me. I can almost always think of something I want to try to make it my own, or a healthier substitution, but every once in a while something catches my eye that looks perfect just the way it is, and that is how I felt when I saw this recipe on Anetta’s blog.

With less than 10 minutes of working time and the bold, perfectly spiced flavor, this healthy, protein-packed meal is a must make, and something I will be making over and over again. I doubled the recipe and it was one of those times where I was legit excited to eat the leftovers for the rest of the week. I served mine with brown rice and added a little fresh lime juice and sriracha on top, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Make sure to check out Anetta’s blog for this fabulous recipe!
