So the other night, when Laura, Sergio, and I went to club it up, I had this lotion that I put on because I thought it smelled awesome. Like for reals good. It’s that kind of lotion you put on and instantly feel more attractive because you’re oozing smells of lust. That’s how I would explain it at least. So I squeezed on some of the lotion and instantly asked Sergio to tell me how good I smelled….he said I smelled like a stripper. WINNING. Not really.

Speaking of things that smell….my friend Jake got his stolen car back a couple days ago…I don’t think it smells ok in there. Wanna know why? This is why, please read Jake’s facebook status:

“well…3 weeks later, they found my truck. on top of that they got the guys who did it, along with 5 back packs full of meth, 2 hatchets, 1 sword, a bunch of stolen goods….and gay porn and lube.”

You can imagine what the comments were like to that status. I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s not that funny, it’s actually REALLY scary, but still. It’s kinda funny. He’s getting a new truck. They had to clean needles out of it. That’s even more scary. And not funny. Sorry Jake. I’m a bad friend.

I’ve come to a decision about something. Recently, I tried to back off the coffee and start drinking some tea. I don’t know why. I do dumb sh*t like this. I like caffeine. Like a lot. And I like the taste of coffee. Tea taste like dirty water. Seriously. Don’t write me telling me about tea that tastes good because the only tea that gets me going is tea that is filled with 1/3 cup of honey. So really, sugar water is what gets me going.  I’m easy to shop for.

    I just made this today. It is very very good. Thank you! It was a hit with my 2 kids 🙂 I did add an extra can of jalapenos and green chiles. Perfect!
    A wonderful recipe! Thank you!!

  2. Kohhal says:

    Have this cooking as we speak – better be good! 😉

  3. Kelly McMahan says:

    If your chicken breasts are still slightly frozen, do you cook the dish longer?

    1. juli says:

      you may need to

    2. Kerry Metz says:

      Yes, definitely. It is better to use thawed chicken breasts. I cook this dish all the time and I tried it with frozen chicken last week and it was awful!

  4. Tricia Smith says:

    This was the first time I put a dish on in the morning and let it sit in the crock pot while I was at work. I’ve always had this fear about leaving the house with something cooking but I know people do it all the time! But it was the perfect amount of cooking time and the house smelled so good when I walked in. This was very good and now I’m past by crock pot fears.

  5. Lisa says:

    Has anyone tried this with the chicken frozen? Would it work? I completely forgot to take the chicken out to thaw!

  6. Crystal says:

    I made this for the first time yesterday. Delicious! And we have lots of leftovers for lunches at work. Perfection!

  7. bebe says:

  8. lindsay says:

    I am making this for my entire family today. I just did a taste test and ummm…it’s the hottest thing I’ve ever tasted. There’s no way my kids can eat this.

  9. Sue says:

    I have made this so many times its my go to meal when I have a busy day coming. Everything in the crockpot in the morning and dinner is ready when we get home. I don’t add the jallapeno when I know my kids will eat it. They love it too!!!I LOVE this recipe. I know PALEO lifestyle don’t need to worry about serving size but i have friends that love this but would like to know what a serving size is.
