Rotisserie Magic!

So by now you all know that I am NOT the world’s best cook.  Not even close.

I know that.  Hey, I even accept it.

But that doesn’t mean my family is going to starve.  Night after night, I put something on the table.  One of my family’s favorites – TOSTADAS!

Mmm…yummy, right?

Not only do I “make” (I used that term extremely loosely…LOL) awesome tostadas, but it only takes me approximately 10 minutes – start to finish!  Doesn’t get any better than that.

First I start with a good, ‘ole rotisserie chicken and shred it.  (The ones at Costco/Sam’s Club are really tasty.)  Put all the chicken in a bowl.  Then heat up some refried beans and set out your toppings – lettuce, diced tomato, sour cream, shredded cheese, perhaps some salsa.  And…viola!  Dinner is served!

 Cheating, you say?  Totally.  But bellies are full and there are smiles on their faces.

 Best of all – the leftover chicken can be used to make, well…a whole lot.

 Add to soup – chicken sandwiches – quesadillas – tacos – add to a pasta dish.

 The possibilities are endless.

 So, I’m curious…do you do the same?  Or am I the only “cheater” amongst us?

I wrote this post for Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop in response to Prompt #5: Watcha’ cookin?  Share a recipe.  This is a recipe, right?

  1. I’m more interested in the people at my table than the food itself, but my Hub lives to eat and I’m a little old school so I always made things. As long as you are gathering around the table every night and talking, it’s all good. My rule of thumb is there should be 3 things on the dinner plate to make a meal 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
