SALSA CHICKEN SCOOPS WITH ZUCCHINI
Did you have a good 4th of July weekend? I had 4 1/2 days off and they went by sooooo fast. Besides a ton of rain, we had fun. Lots of family and friends time, which is my favorite. And a haircut, pedicure, and a few Target trips. Those are my favorite, too.
Remember when I made homemade taco seasoning last week? Well, I used it to make crock pot salsa chicken. Then I turned the salsa chicken into these little, bite sized scoops. They reminded me of pizza rolls, but a homemade, Mexican version. They would be great as a finger food at a party, but we ate them for dinner. I threw the salsa chicken into the crock pot during my lunch hour so when I got home from work, I only had to make the zucchini, shred the cheese, and assemble them. So simple.
