Green Chicken Wraps

Hey everyone!

Wow, what a crazy time it has been. I have been getting SO wrapped up in so many exciting projects that I want to do. I have so many goals, crafts, hobbies, and fun mom stuff I want to do with Calvin that I feel almost stressed with how much excitement I have. If you talk to me and I seem like a spaz that jumps from one topic to another it’s because I am and always will be. I think I need assign a day to everything I want to do to keep my brain from jumping from one thing to the next. It’s mentally exhausting!

But know what’s not exhausting? This meal. Put it in the crockpot and don’t even think about it.

It’s delicious. A new staple at my house. Gosh, I love cooking. Sometimes I get caught up in the mindset that I need to think of dinner that I forget that I actually enjoy it! But after I eat a yummy dinner I’m reminded of how much I really do love it. I love that it’s a family friendly hobby that I can easily include my kids in and eventually teach them how to cook for their own families one day. I’m a futuristic thinker. 🙂

With so many hobbies, goals, and projects sometimes I feel guilty over loving it. Does anyone else feel that way sometimes? I just need to sit down at the end of the night and simplify my mind by saying I love Christ. I love being Ceth’s wife. I love being Calvin’s mom. And it’s okay that I love my hobbies. Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize.

Maybe that one, sad day when all my kids are moved out I’ll learn how to cook like Gordon Ramsay. But for now I am loving these 15 minute mom recipes that allow me to be creative in my hobby while still being able to devote my time to my family first. 15 to 30 minutes of my hobby a day that satisfies my excitement and creativity while feeding my family at the same time? I think that’s pretty good!

If I haven’t convinced you yet to start getting into cooking then you are a lost cause. #sorrynotsorry

I guess you don’t have to love it. Good thing this is a recipe for those who love it and for those who don’t. Quick, easy, refreshing, and scrumptious.

Green Chicken Wraps (Slowcooker)

  • 8 large chicken breasts
  • 2 ranch seasoning packets
  • 8 oz. cream cheese

Put the chicken in the slow cooker with the seasoning packets sprinkled over. Cube the cream cheese and lay it in. Put on low for 6-8 hours. Stir when done and it will mix well. The longer it cools, the thicker the sauce will get. If you used frozen chicken, chances are ot has more liquid. Drain until there is about a cup or so of liquid left and then put your cream cheese in.  Or you can leave it, that’s great though because it soaks into the rice. Grab your tortillas and put in these toppings.

  • Rice
  • Diced cucumbers
  • Avocados
  • Lettuce

Add anything else you would like. Go crraazzyy.

Hey- I never claimed I was good at making cakes. I’m decent at cooking but cakes? Gotta practice. It was sufficient for a good cake smash though. 🙂

Have a fabulous week and pray for me that hopefully next week I won’t be so scatterbrained with all of my exciting stuffs. Now go make those wraps so you can see the yumminess I was talking about.

xoxo, Marinn
