If you read my blog frequently, you know that my family and I love to watch football on Saturday, and we always like to have something delicious to go along with the game.  For us, this usually means that we’re eating something greasy or spicy, or both!  And unfortunately, as much as I love those foods, they can take a toll on your stomach.  For that reason, I always take Nexium® 24HR, so that I can stop heartburn before it starts.  Today I’m going to discuss why I love Nexium® 24HR, and I’m going to share a delicious homegating recipe for Crockpot Chicken Tacos.

nexium-24hr

Nexium® 24HR is for the treatment of frequent heartburn.  It should be taken every day for best results, and it may take 1 to 4 days for full effect. You should always read the product packaging and refer to the company’s website before taking the product.

I’ve always found the product to be very effective against my own heartburn, and I love that you just take one pill.  And it is also the #1 choice of Doctors and Pharmacists* for their own frequent heartburn.” *Among PCPs and Pharmacists who use a branded OTC PPI.

The 42 count package is also actually organized in to three 14-count bottles.  I find this more convenient than a larger bottle.  And if you have more than one person in your household who takes the medication, then you can each have your own bottle.

Nexium® 24HR is in the healthcare section at Walmart.  You can find it in the stomach care aisle, and right now you can find a special display for the 42 count package. The product is available in capsule and tablets.  And on top of Walmart’s every day low prices, the 42 count box currently has a $3 off coupon that you can pull off and use right at the register.

As promised, I also have a tailgating recipe!  My family just loves tacos and Mexican food, and so I’m always looking for new recipes with a little Mexican flavor!  I also love looking for new recipes that allow me to use my crockpot, so this one is right up alley.

 

crockpot-chicken-taco-meat

This recipe features skinless, boneless chicken breasts and a few simple ingredients!  Like most crockpot recipes, you can whip this up in the morning and allow it to cook until you are ready to serve, or you can even cook up your meat the night before and just reheat it the next day.

Then after you meat is prepared, you just add your favorite tortillas or chips, and serve your tacos or taco salads up with all the fixings!

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Ingredients:

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6)

2 cups chicken broth (Additional broth may be necessary. See recipe for details.)

1 package taco seasoning

1 package ranch dressing seasoning

Additional Items and Optional Toppings:

hard tortillas, soft tortillas, or corn chips

shredded cheese

salsa

lettuce

tomatoes

olives

peppers

taco sauce

Directions:

Spray crockpot with non-stick cooking spray. Pour chicken broth into the crockpot Add taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix. Stir until well blended Place chicken breasts in the crockpot with the broth and seasonings (You should use about 6, give or take one or two, depending on the size of the chicken breasts).

Cook for 3-4 hours on high or 7-8 hours on low, or until chicken is cooked through and pulls apart easily with a fork. Stir occasionally during cooking to make sure chicken breasts are well covered with the liquid, so they do not dry out. You may add additional broth if your chicken is not well covered at the start of cooking, or just use less chicken, if necessary.

Once your chicken is cooked through, take out a serving dish and remove your chicken, one or two pieces at a time from the crockpot. Use a knife and fork to pull chicken apart.

Once all of your chicken is pulled apart in the serving dish, pour broth/sauce mixture from the crockpot into the serving dish, and stir the chicken and sauce together. (This will help to add flavor and keep your chicken moist.)

Heat up your tortillas and prepare your toppings. Then assemble and serve tacos.

Sams Pizza Family Deal

It’s been a very interesting football season this year, and we still have a few more BIG games to go! If you follow my blog regularly, you know that we can’t have football without great food!  (Can anyone?)

Recently my husband and I were shopping at Sam’s Club when I discovered the perfect game night meal:  the Sam’s Club Coca-Cola Family Pizza Combo! [Read more…]

Game Day Oreo Balls

Game Day Oreo Balls When the holiday season is in the air, I can hardly wait to make sweet treats like OREO Cookie Balls!  But why should these yummy treats only be made around the holidays?  I see no reason why OREO Cookie Balls shouldn’t be on our party menus year round.  Do you?

There are a number of ways you can transform OREO Balls to fit any holiday or occasion.  Last weekend I made a batch for game day.  In the past I’ve seen a lot of people mold their balls in to football shapes, and those always look so cute.  But for my recipe, I went in a slightly different direction.  I just happen to have this cute little snack stadium.  In the past I’ve used it to hold cupcakes, but I’ve been dying to use it to display homemade candies.

So I dressed my OREO Cookie Balls out with X’s and O’s, and they took the field!  Haha!  I even made a few striped ones! (Because every game needs to officials!) [Read more…]

Easy Tailgating Ideas with Red Baron and Edwards Pies

The number one question I hear people ask on Saturdays in the fall is, “What time is the game?”  Almost everyone I know has a team they root for, a team they root against, and few teams they watch just for the fun of it!  Each week we have OUR teams that we watch as well, and good food is a key ingredient to making our football Saturday great!

Last week we were super busy working on various projects, but thanks to Red Baron Pizza and Edwards Pies, I still managed to put together a little spread for the big game. [Read more…]

Fueling My Family with Jimmy Dean and State Fair

I’ve been so busy this month!  It seems like every time I scratch something off the old to do list, I end up adding 3 MORE things to the to do list.  This week  I’ve got my usual housework to do, plus several blogging projects.  We’ve also got the usual school, band practice, and ball game schedule.  Plus, this Saturday we have a band festival and scholar’s bowl tournament. AND….if all that is not enough, my mom and I are working on going through stuff at her house and my house so we can have a yard sale.  Eek!

But regardless of how much stuff we have to do, the family still has to eat!  Luckily I keep a lot of convenient, yet delicious and hearty breakfast and dinner food options to fuel my family no matter how busy life gets!  A couple of family favorites are Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant and State Fair® Classic 22ct Corn Dogs.

BBQ Chicken Sliders and Fried Pickles

The summer grilling season is dwindling down, which means it’s time to think about after school snacks (and football food).  For both of these, I often run to my freezer for solutions!  Farm Rich has several options that we LOVE!  When I was a kid, I ate their cheese sticks all the time, and nowadays I also enjoy their Crispy Dill Pickles, Boneless BBQ Chicken Bites, Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites, and Chicken Wings!

Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos

Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos

You must know by now that I love all things spicy, and especially all things buffalo!  The other day I made these delicious Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos.  They were awesome, of course, so much so that I’ve already made a second version of the buffalo nachos (to be posted later….stay tuned!)

Chicken Bacon Bleu Cheese Subs with Naturally Fresh Dressing + Giveaway

Chicken Bacon Ranch Subs

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here! Who will you be rooting for?  Regardless of who is playing, I’m always cheering for good food!  One item that will definitely be on my football party supply list is  Naturally Fresh Salad Dressing.  Naturally Fresh offers a variety of salad dressings, dips, and other products.  A couple of my favorites include their Classic Ranch and Bleu Cheese (also available in Lite versions).  Naturally Fresh puts real, wholesome ingredients in their products; for instance, their Bleu Cheese dressing includes real chunks of aged bleu cheese and buttermilk, along with real herbs and spices.  And you’ll definitely taste the difference!

Apart from using natural and fresh ingredients, the brand sets themselves about from others by not using artificial flavors, flavor enhancers, colors, thickeners, preservatives, or MSG.  As such, you’ll find their product not with other dressings and condiments, but in the refrigerated section, alongside the produce.

Big Game Snacking with Cheez-Its and Pringles + Spinach Dip Recipe

Big Game Snacking It’s hard to believe football season is almost over! But with one more game still to go, there’s still plenty of time for Big Game Snacking.  Last weekend we enjoyed a small football party with family and friends and an array of food, decorations and fun!

Easy Party Decorations

Finding party decor and activities is as easy and affordable as 1-2-3.  I used a great set of printables from Dazzle Expressions for the table decor.  And for kids, there are a lot of free printable activity pages like this Football Bingo Game from Pretty Providence.  My friend Ami of AliLily also has a great post of 42 Football Party Ideas which includes a great collection of party games and activity sheets, as well printable decorations.  And then I just got a simple green table cloth and few other party supplies from Walmart to decorate the table.  Easy peasy!

Cheez-It and Pringles

As for food, I make parties easy with a couple of savory appetizers or main course items.  Last week we had a pizza and some Chicken, Bacon, Ranch Subs.  But on other occasions, I’ve served chicken tenders, wings, meatballs, little sausages, cheese sticks, and other tasty appetizers.  And then apart from that, I MUST have at least kind of dip to serve.  And where there’s dip, there has to be something to eat with the dip.  Enter Cheez-Its and Pringles!

Our pantry is always stocked with various flavors of these tasty snacks.  Not only does our son love them, but so do my husband and I.  And both snacks are very affordable! [Read more…]
