White Chicken Chili Recipe

So this is my world famous chili recipe. It’s a crockpot chili too! But it’s a big crock pot chili recipe.

I’m going to put this recipe in print because I’m making it this week, I’m going to add pictures as I make it later, and I need to make it easily shareable!


2 lbs boneless/skinless chicken breast

2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed)

3 cans of petite diced tomatoes

1 cup of medium salsa

1 can of corn (drained)

1 package of taco seasoning

1 package of ranch dressing mix

Cumin to taste (I added that and I haven’t figured out what I use exactly for the precise dose)

(Also, I add 8oz of cream cheese. This makes it white and super yummy and it’s optional.)

Cook on low 7-8hrs in the crockpot!

I like to top it with Hint of Lime chips, sour cream, Mexican cheese, more salsa, shredded lettuce…

Leftovers I usually make pinwheels with tortillas and more cream cheese!

Two meals! One crock.

Diverticulitis Update

Disclaimer: we’ve moved into my inlaws because we’re building a house and our house sold too fast. We’ll be here about 3 months. I love my inlaws and my husband. They are the best!

Day 12: Hubby et. al grabbed groceries on his way home from worked and bought himself…..pizza rolls*


This is apparently a death trap for no officially diagnosed diverticulitis. I didn’t catch on the subtle comments at first.

So while sitting down to watch Deadpool as a family (see upcoming post šŸ˜¬), my husband made himself some pizza rolls.

“Oh that’s no good for his stomach issues.” (He had one tummy ache)

“You can’t eat those things Hubby et. al. They are so unhealthy.” (He knew that when he bought them)

So while sitting next to my mil, she Facebooks me this:

No warning. No explanation. No comment afterward.

As she and I sat next to each other on the love seat.

Watching Deadpool.

Birthday Cookies

Look, if I send my kid to school with 13 cookies and I go to pick her up and she’s the 2nd kid out of the door and there are only four other little butts on that mat, I want my other cookies back, lady!

I may have bags under my eyes and my shirt on backwards but I can still count past ten when there sugar and fancy frosting involved!

I just cleaned poop off of my toddlers ear and then had to brush her teeth because she told me, “poopy taste icky.” AFTER she gave me a goodnight kiss!


Sometimes a leftover cookie is all we SAHM’s have to keep us from jumping off the highest level of the play equipment…..which wouldn’t really do anything except sprain an ankle and maybe gain us some sympathy points from the hubby and then maybe he might empty the dishwasher.

But that’s ok. You just eat those cookies like we both don’t know where they went. I’ll pretend like all these extra kids came and left when I wasn’t looking and ate the cookies.


Daddy Day GrubĀ 

It’s true. It’s the way to a mans heart. My hubby loves to pig out for Father’s Day. And you all know how I like to prep the day before an event (then I can enjoy the guest and the day too), so I spent my Saturday in the kitchen. Like a good little wife. Coincidentally barefoot. Empty uterus, though.

Here’s some of our grub:

Snack Crackers

Everyone has a family recipe for these things. If not, here. Take mine and once your fam has tasted one, it’s instant addiction.  


  • 2 packages of oyster crackers
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix (NOT the dip mix)
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon dillweed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Mix together everything except the crackers. I put those ingredients in a Tupperware container so I can snap the lid on and shake the heck out them to mix them up well.
  2. Pour mix over crackers. Again in a container with a tight sealing lid to shake the heck out of.
  3. Let sit overnight so the crackers soak in all the flavors.

Fruit Salad 

Again, people have many variations of fruit salad. Mines the best, clearly. Try it and see for yourself.



  • 16 oz pears halves (drained)
  • 16 oz sliced peaches (drained)
  • 20 oz pineapple chunks 
  • 1 large bunch grapes (halved)
  • 3 sliced kiwi fruits
  • 3 sliced bananas 
  • 4 oz jar marocchino cherries (drained and sliced)
  • 3.4 oz package instant lemon pudding mix


  1. Slice pears and peaches into bite size pieces and add to large storage bowl with lid.
  2. Slice grapes, kiwis, and cherries and add to bowl.
  3. Add pineapple chunks with juice.
  4. Sprinkles pudding on top of fruit and stir gently.
  5. Chill overnight.
  6. Add sliced bananas prior to serving.

Now go love on the fathers and father figures in your world!
