Had a nice evening last night.. Went and visited some good friends out at Lake Cowichan.. Their son and his girlfriend were up here from Australia for a couple of weeks so I wanted to make sure that we got a visit in before they headed back... Will be a few years before we get to see them again unless we decide to take an Aussi trip ... That is on my bucket list.



  • 3 frozen chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 2 cans (7.75 oz) El Pato jalapeno salsa + 1 can water
  • 3 cans (15 oz) of any type of beans (pinto, kidney, etc)
  • 1 can (16 oz) refried beans
  • 1 pkg flour tortillas or 1 bag tortilla chips
  • shredded cheese (optional topping)
  • sour cream (optional topping)


  1. Place the chicken in the bottom of the crockpot with the two cans of El Pato and one can of water (use the El Pato can).
  2. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  3. Using two forks shred the chicken in the crockpot.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix around.
  5. Cook on low for 4 more hours.


My friend Pat just had a new granddaughter this week so I thought I would post this blog today.. She makes some of the cutest little girl clothes and I know how Pat is always sewing so I thought she might like to check out this blog.

Another day of lots of work but it will all be over soon... then I will be able to have a normal life and dust off my sewing machine and serger... I have got a ton of ideas of what I want to make just need to find the time.... Pretty soon...


  1. Yumm - it's a gloomy day in Chilliwack, so this recipe looks like a good fit!
