Health issues again...

I've been having health issues again. Plugged ears which is causing VERTIGO. I hope you never ever have to deal with that,,it's not fun. The world spins without your control. You feel like your on the TeaCup ride that never stops spinning. I've been to the Dr. 3 times now since May 20 for this issue. Medical bills just keep getting deeper and deeper in the pile.

Stay healthy.

Sour Cream Salsa Chicken

Boneless skinless chicken breasts
I used a bag of the frozen kind (around $6)
1 package of Taco seasoning
1 jar of salsa
2 tbsp of cornstarch
1/4 cup of sour cream

Put the chicken in the Crockpot, sprinkle taco seasoning over the top of the chicken pour entire jar of salsa on top put on lid and cook on Low for 6-8 hours (high around 4 hours)

When done remove Chicken to a plate. dissolve cornstarch in a small amount of water and pour in salsa, add sour cream and mix well.

I always put the chicken back in and let it simmer in the salsa. I also serve over rice. It's really good.
