Tasty Tuesday

Ok...I'm hungry and on a diet! Not good this time of day! I am trying to lose 10ish pounds before my birthday this summer....I will be the big 50. As depressing as that is, I don't want to add fat and fifty to my description. In the past two year I have put on about 15 pounds, give or take. Most of it appeared while I have been taking care of Sweet Mama. She has lost about 30 pounds...I found some of them. I have been trying to put weight on her...not me! So I am doing Weight Watchers. I have done it in the past and it does work! You just have to pay attention to what goes on your plate and in your mouth. But some things are not on the list.

I am sharing with you today a recipe from my favorite cookbook. Georgia Hometown Cookbook by Sheila Simmons & Kent Whitaker. It has tons of recipes from around the state of Georgia and local state festivals. This one sound good!

Chicken Taco Stew

1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 cup water
1 cup cooked white rice
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (15-oz) can pinto or chili beans, rinsed and drained

In a large skillet, lightly brown chicken. Ass taco seasoning and water; simmer 5 to 10 minutes. Ad rice, corn and beans; heat completely. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and chips.
