Snapware® Total Solution® Collection Review, Sweepstakes AND GIVEAWAY!

I am in LOVE with my new Snapware® Total Solution® 10 Piece Collection!!!

Do you know what I love most about these?  They are SO easy to use.  Seriously!  The top just "clicks" on in about 2-3 quick seconds.  No more second guessing whether or not the lid is actually on.  (That's not a fun game especially when you have liquids inside.  OYE!) I made a super quick video to show you how incredibly easy and quick these are to use...check it out!

To inspire at-home cooks and families looking for hearty and delicious soups this winter, Chef Lagasse will be sharing some of his favorite soup recipes on, along with tips and tricks for perfecting soup. Prep, storage and transportation is a “snap” with the Snapware® Total Solution® collection, which combines an air-tight and leak-proof, four-latch plastic lid with either a plastic or Pyrex® oven-safe glass vessel. Soups, sauces and more can be transported on-the-go without worries of leaks.  I have been using my Snapware for a couple of weeks now and have been 100% satisfied with how these perform.

Mexican Shredded Beef

After the "race to the finish line" with the cookbook, I was exhausted.  I literally took 2 weeks of from any cooking whatsoever!  My husband is a saint.  He took care of it all for me.  

When I got back to cooking (finally!) I decided something super easy was a great way to dip my toes back in ;)  So, I came up with this SUPER easy Mexican Shredded Beef!

You throw a few ingredients in your crock, shred the beef when it's done and dinner is ready!  This beef is so versatile you can eat it many different ways.  You can eat it on nachos, in tacos, burritos, on a salad, over rice, over quinoa, etc.

Did I mention it's only 4 ingredients????  Just sayin'!

Servings: 10-12 

3-4 lb. boneless chuck roast
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies (hot or mild)
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 1/2 cups salsa

Directions: (Use a 3-4 Quart slow cooker)
Place the roast into your crock and pour the contents of the green chilies (juices too) over the roast and add the garlic.

Pour the salsa over the top.

Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours, r on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
After the cook time is up, remove the beef and shred it between 2 forks.  Stir it back through the juices or for a lower fat version, just remove the beef, shred it and add in just a little juice. (That's what we did)

Serve this however you would like!
