Sometimes the tastiest meals are invented by just perusing your pantry shelves. Some of my best creations have been the result of what I call pantry raids.
Although I do love trying new recipes, it is usually much more budget friendly, and often just as luscious, to cook out of your own kitchen rather than rushing out to buy all the ingredients for that extravagant new recipe you just found. That was exactly the case with the dish I threw together tonight.
My family loves a tasty crock pot recipe using chicken breast, cream cheese, and a few Tex Mex ingredients. I wanted to do something along those lines, but we had no chicken breast. So, I thawed out two pounds of beef stew meat and created a scrumptious dish.
This would be fabulous over noodles or rice or served with Spanish rice. We had broccoli and cheese pasta and some crescent rolls with ours, and it made a lovely meal. It’s rich, creamy, and very satisfying. Using the peach salsa gave ours a sweet flavor that was lovely, but I imagine it would be wonderful with a spicy salsa. Experimenting with the salsa you use could make this a very different dish each time you make it. I think it is a perfect, no fuss meal for the cool days of fall.
