Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili
I would have given this recipe 5 stars, except I made a few changes! I agree with the other reviews that this was going to be super spicy so I changed it up a bit so the entire family would enjoy. Instead of preparing it like the directions, I used the crockpot instead! I threw in 2 frozen chicken breasts (you can put in thaw uncooked chicken to speed up time), 1 can of corn (drained), 2 cans of white beans, 1 can of white kidney beans, 1 can (4oz.) green chiles, 1 can of chicken broth (I found it was too soupy with 2 cans of broth, but just my preference), half of an onion (diced), 3 cloves garlic (minced), 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp oregano, salt/pepper to taste. I put the crockpot on for 6 hours (high) and then shredded the chicken 30 mins before serving. It was so delicious!!! Certainly will be a regular at our house.

Spicy Avocado Chicken
I would have given this dish 5 stars but I made two big changes that I think added to the flavor. I agree with some other reviews that the ratio of avocado and onion seemed wrong. I had way too much onion for the garnish, and had to scoop about 1 cup of it out to have a better ratio. Next time I will increase the amount of avocado or decrease the amount of onion. The second big change was adding bacon. My husband and I first thought the picture on this recipe had bacon in it...and then decided that sounded great! So we cooked about five pieces of bacon and broke it up into little pieces, added it to the garnish and served. We also decided to grill the chicken (to save some time), which turned out awesome!! It added a perfect amount of salt to compliment the spice. Great dish and I will make this again!

Chicken Caesar Pitas
This has quickly become a summer family favorite. When I first started the recipe, cooking the chicken according to the instructions seemed strange. It ended coming out great and helped with some time management (and heating up the kitchen) when I skipped a few steps and purchased caesar croutons instead of making them from scratch and used bacon bits. We also used wheat wraps instead of pita bread, but they are delicious!
