Turkey Burritos in the slow cooker…

This was a concoction that kinda developed over time. I really love taco salad but I live with two picky butt heads! (I love them)

I started off making taco meat in the crockpot since I’m the only one who eats raw tomatoes I decided to add them to the mix. Then one time I got too lazy to make refried beans so I added a can pinto beans. (which I later switched to black beans) Dillon doesn’t like hard tacos or chips to much so he just had to have a burrito. One time making this last minute Dillon informs me he has a friend coming over. Well I hurried and made some rice and added to the mix so there would be a little more. Turns out everyone loves it that way! Now this is a staple in our house. Sometimes I just eat it as a burrito bowl! I’ve shared the recipes multiple times.

  • 1 lbs of ground turkey
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce (15 oz)
  • 1 can Bushes seasoned black beans
  • 1 pack taco seasoning
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Stir ground turkey, onion, beans, tomatoes, taco seasoning, and half the tomato sauce into crockpot on low for 4 hours stirring occasionally. Stir in cooked rice or quinoa. Before serving if it looks dry add more tomato sauce. We use Mission carb smart whole wheat tortilla. (When Walmart has them) Make sure you add cheese and top with your favorites.

* When I double this recipe I normally use 1 can Bushes black beans and 1 can of pinto beans just to give it a little more variety!

One Pan Chicken & Cauliflower Fried Rice

I love simple, I love fast, and I love healthy! So I get really excited over stuff that can be cooked in one pan! That’s why this is my go-to healthy one pan dish! Someone once told me the basics of how to make this and I’ve tweaked it to fit my family and made it all in one pan!  IMG_4250[1]
• Some diced chicken (however much you want)

• 2 large eggs

• 2 bags of frozen riced cauliflower

• 1 bag of frozen peas and carrots

• 3 tbs of soy sauce (we use low sodium)

• 2 tbs of oyster sauce (you can find this at Walmart)

• Salt and pepper


I start by spraying a little oil in my pan. Then cook the chicken. Salt and pepper chicken while cooking. Once the chicken is mostly cooked I scoot the chicken to one side of the pan and fry my eggs in the same pan. Then when your eggs are fried up, mix everything else in and stir. Cook about 15 minutes. Ta-Da Voila!

In the pictures, I used A LOT of chicken Logan complained there wasn’t enough cauliflower but Dillon like the amount of chicken! Ugh I can’t ever please both of them!
I also bought two bags of peas and carrots I didn’t mean to take a picture of both! (There for another meal!)
