Simply Made Sunday (on a Monday!)

So I figure who can it hurt if I post a Simply Made Sunday on a Monday? Nobody, right?

I wanted to share what I'm making for dinner tonight. It's a simple (goes with the title!) crockpot meal, which I am looking forward to having later.

I'm in the process of trying to "clean out my freezer and pantry" to help save money on groceries. I go through phases where I do this, I find myself with a lot of extras around the house, and like to try to use them up for recipes, or for random meals throughout the week.

So for tonight I have the following ingredients:

* a decent sized portion of Tyson frozen chicken strips

* 1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)

* 1 can of cheesy cheddar soup

* 1/2 soup can of chicken broth

* 1 package of Success boil-in-a-bag brown rice

Throw everything in but the rice, and let it cook for about 3-4 hrs. Picture below is pre-rice!

Add the rice in with about 1-2 hrs to go and it will absorb all of the broth and make a decent mixture for tortillas (which hopefully hubby will pick up on the way home tonight) or nacho/corn chips. Mmmn, yum. Serve with avocados, sour cream, shredded cheese, or whatever else makes it a meal for you and your family!

Pictures of the complete dish not yet available, as it's still in the CP keeping warm! Hopefully it will look pretty on a plate, too!
