That is a catchy title, isn’t it? I know that I am ALWAYS looking for easy weeknight meals because when I get home, I am just tired and almost despise the question “what’s for dinner?” and let me tell you, this is a keeper. I made a healthy slow cooker turkey chili and paired it with some delicious taquitos and tamales from Delimax and it was the easiest thing ever! Plus it would be great for watching your favorite game of any variety! Check it out!

Here is what you need for the chili and the best part is you throw it all in the slow cooker and you are good to go! I live for these slow cooker liners because the only thing I dislike more than figuring out dinner, is doing the dishes afterwards. This picture is separated to show the ingredients, but I did stir it together before I put the lid on.


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 3 cloves of garlic grated or minced
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp cumin

I put that in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours but could also do it on low for 8 if you needed to throw it together before work. As for the taquitos and the tamales, I was thrilled to be able to grab my favorites on my weekly Walmart trip and I got our old stand by chicken taquitos and also tried a new favorite, beef tamales!

There is even an awesome coupon right now for $1 off two Delimax products (not including fruit taquitos) which is like the cherry on top! These are already a great price at Walmart and with the extra store coupon you can really stock up!

Doesn’t it look great after it is simmering all day?! Let me tell you that it smelled amazing throughout the whole house!

I baked the taquitos and steamed the tamales and that is all I had to do after work to be ready for dinner! Hallelujah! We loved the tamales!

The taquitos were quick and easy to bake on a pan and I loved that I could buy the big box and pull out what I needed and save the rest!

This is for sure a dinner that we will have again and the best part is that we will always have these ingredients on hand!
