It is harvest time again here on Zweber Farms. Today is the first day that we will start chopping corn silage. The whole corn silage harvest will take us about 4-7 days (depending on the weather). We mix this silage with hay all winter long to keep our cows health. I hope to get some video today and post more about this process tomorrow.
When times get busy (whether it is a harvest, after school sports, etc) I bring out my Crock-Pot. Here is a quick delicious recipe that will keep your family’s tummies full even when you are busy.
Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken (Emily’s version)
- 1 Zweber Farm’s whole chicken, cut up into 8 pieces
- 1 tbsp Organic Valley butter
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 1 jar salsa
- Tortillas/chips/taco sells
- Melt butter in large fry pan. Brown chicken pieces (about 3 minutes/side)
- Place chicken in slow cooker and top with taco seasoning and salsa.
- Cook on low for 6 hours (or until juices run clear)
- Using a fork, remove chicken from bones. Make into chicken nachos, tacos or burritos.
- Top with your favorite toppings: Organic Valley sour cream, Organic Valley cheeses, salsa, avocado and more!
- Tip: If your family is really busy, hand them each an individual bag of chips (like corn chips). Have each person add their chicken and toppings. Now you have a walking taco that can go anywhere. Also, great for a tailgate parties.
