Chili's Salsa

I found this recipe on a blog a few months ago, tried it, and now we're hooked! It is EXACTLY like Chili's salsa!!!!
1 (10 oz) can original Rotel (what I use, it just calls for tomatoes with chilies)
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)
4 teaspoons jalapenos (canned, diced, not pickled)
1/4 cup yellow onion (diced)
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cilantro
juice from 1/2 lime

In the food processor, blend the onion and jalapenos. Next add the tomatoes, rotel, cilantro, lime and spices. The recipe calls for it to not be pureed, but mine usually is.

Place in a bowl with a lid, refrigerate, and enjoy in a few hours! It has become our favorite poolside/lake snack!

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

This has quickly become a favorite of Michael and I am so happy to FINALLY after about 7 years of cooking for him, found a chicken recipe he loves!!!! PTL!
2 frozen chicken breasts
1-20oz can sliced pineapple, with juice
teriyaki sauce

Place 2 or more pieces of chicken in the crockpot with 1 can of sliced pineapple and cover with teriyaki sauce. I usually add about a cup of water. Cook for 6 hours on high and serve over rice!

I also slice three different colored peppers, red onion, and mushrooms and cook over medium heat in a skillet with teriyaki and serve on the side. YUM!
