Zucchini with onion

Taco salad (Monica's slow cooker chicken concoction)

Swedish Meatballs
Red potatoes
Yellow squash

Pesto broccoli pasta
Salad with strawberries, goat cheese and walnuts

Ok, it's actually a slow cooker recipe that is more of a stew. The flavor was great but it was a little watery. I think I need to perfect it a bit. Basically dump the following in a slow cooker:
chicken tenders/breasts
TJ's salsa verde
1 bit of red salsa
black beans
pinto beans

Top with cheese, cilantro, tomato, avocado and sour cream or mexican cream.

I served ours over brown rice and scooped with Have A Chips. Very flavorful.

Oh yes, and you could add corn. You can add corn to anything!
