Mexican Night Ease

Well, 2020 is upon us. I hope you rang in the New Year with those who love most in the world.

Do you make resolutions? I have to admit, they aren't really my thing. To me, they kind of set me up for failure. Writing out a list of things to achieve is fine, but I find myself beating myself up when I fail; and let's face it, we will all fail, we are only human.

So, instead of making specific resolutions that can maybe put too much pressure on myself, and add to my already high anxiety level, I make a promise to just be a better person overall. I know what my weaknesses are (I'm not the most patient person in the world) and I try to consciously work on those. In my own time, in my own way, without letting the universe dictate what a successful resolution is.

That being said, I know many of you are writing out your 2020 goals, and that is awesome! Just because it isn't my thing, doesn't mean I can't support those who do!

Do you happen to have an "foodie" goals? Maybe you want to learn to use that Instant Pot you got for Christmas? Or you want to take the stress out of dinner time so you can enjoy sitting down with your family every night? Or maybe you just want to find more simple recipes to get supper on the table for your busy family, that is only going to get busier in the new year.

I decided my first new recipe of 2020 would be a fantastic slow cooker dish that combines two of our favorites. A tasty meal in the Crock Pot perfect for Mexican night at home!

Serve this up over a big bowl of rice, or with some tortillas on the side like I did. It's great for a crowd, or when everyone is eating at separate times!

I hope whatever resolutions or goals you have for 2020 are off to a good start. And if they don't happen exactly that way you planned, don't be too hard on yourself! We are all trying to navigate this thing called life, and it isn't easy. We will all fall down, but it is the getting back up again part we can be proud of no matter what!
