Jac-pot Beef Chili

This recipe is the first of many new crockpot dinners that I will be posting. They will be convienently named Jac-pots! So many of my clients are too busy to eat healthy these days, That is why I creating recipes with limited ingredients and easy prep. The series of Jac-pots will be very simple to prep in the am and able to stew in the crockpot for 6-10 hours while you live your life. Come home, open the pot, and serve.

I'm starting with my beef chili recipe beacuse it is an easy crowd pleaser. Add a little Jac's guac on top or some oprganic shredded cheese. Bake a sweet potato and pour over the top to make it a meal. Make an extra batch a head of time and freeze for another day.

Jac-pot Mexican Shredded Chicken

Set it and forget it! If you like easy recipes that taste delicious then you are in for a double treat. This chicken dish takes a mere 10 minutes to prepare. I have used the chicken as a base for tacos, however there are so many ways you can use the meat. Burrito bowls, topping for a salad, tortilla soup or how about in an omelet?? This dish is great to set up for a Sunday morning so you can have a cozy, warm meal that day, and have a no-brainer lunch or dinner for Monday.
