Thanks Vanilla Bean

Although I did taste the salsa and it was amazing I didn't eat the meal as I'm on a diet :( My fiancee assures me it was very tasty and is asking for another plateful

I bet that salsa would be great on fish too or along side some grilled or breaded shrimp! Yum Yum!


I'm making Mark a chicken, potato, vegetable chowder. There is not a recipe. Something I'm throwing in the crock-pot. We'll see how it turns out.

Leftovers from last night, see tequila taco chicken thread. Chicken is gone, so will just brown some hamburger and do regular tacos, using some of the sauce in the meat.

Like I said there is not a recipe. I put one chicken breast, 1 peeled/diced potato, chicken bouillon, garlic powder, italian seasoning, black pepper and 1 can evaporated milk in the crock-pot right now. The chicken breast was frozen, so I'll turn down the temp later to low. I'm also adding diced onion, carrot and celery. I started those in the oven, because they tend to take longer to cook.

I should have started this earlier. Now, I have to improvise. When the vegies are just about tender, I'll add them to the slow cooker. To thicken the chowder later, I'll either do that with a little flour or potato flakes.
