Happy Sunday! I have another quilter’s recipe to share with you for a weekend dinner or lunch that takes little or no effort and would be perfect for a relaxing weekend. This recipe was given to me from Janie Nash, a quilter from San Antonio, TX.

Low Cal King Ranch Slow Cooker Chicken

1-2 cans of mild jalapeno peppers
1 can of low calorie cream of chicken soup
minced garlic and fajita seasoning to taste

Place chicken, soup, jalapeno peppers, garlic, fajita seasoning in a slow cooker. Cook on low, 6-7 hours. Twenty (20) minutes before serving, stir in the cheese and allow to melt. Stir through to mix. Serve over rice. Use black beans as a side dish.
