Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken

Today I went shopping with family. It is nice to get out and see things you don't see everyday. We were at one shop and I spotted some shoes that had a good six inch heel. Oh my. I couldn't resist. Yep, I shucked off my comfy easy heel clogs and slipped on those towering heels. Welllll, let me tell you. I felt like I was on a teeter totter. No joke. My family stood on stand by just in case I fell. Now I used to wear heels all the time. I mean all the time. I even wore heels when I rode my bike. But never were they this high. I think you need to have toe shoe training before wearing these. They had them in a beautiful red. But not in my size. Ha Ha!!! Can't you see me tiptoeing around the shop in six inch heels.

Tonight's recipe is from It is a crock pot recipe and it is low fat. What better combination. It makes a great dinner to have when you have had a long day shopping or working.

Slow cooked shredded chicken with corn, tomatoes and black beans. Prepare the night before and turn your crock pot on in the morning for an easy weeknight meal. Low fat and low in points. Serve over rice with chopped scallions, fresh cilantro, fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheddar.
