Just in time for Thanksgiving? Jill Duggar took to Instagram on Saturday, Nov. 17, to advertise her latest recipe, and as usual, it looked seriously unappetizing. The former Counting On star — who was fired from her family’s hit TV show thanks to Derick Dillard — is occupying her time these days by sharing meals full of cans, cans, and well, more cans.
“This recipe is another easy one that we had on occasion in the Duggar home when I was a kid,” she wrote on her blog regarding her Creamy Chicken and Tortillas recipe. “It can be thrown in the slow cooker for 3-5 hours so you’ll have a tasty meal without needing to spend a lot of time on preparation. I love doing slow cooker meals when I know I’m gonna be out of the house or I have a lot on my to-do list. I made it this week (12 tortilla version) and both boys loved it! Sam had his by itself and Israel had his rolled up inside a flour tortilla.”
Let’s read through the ingredients, shall we?
4 C. chicken, cooked, cubed
12-18 corn tortillas (tear or cut into bite size pieces)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
8 oz. salsa verde (you can substitute for your favorite red salsa if you prefer!)
1 C. sour cream
1 C. shredded Mexican cheese (or cheddar)
Of course, we can’t totally blame the 27-year-old for her lack of skills. After all, she grew up as one of 19 children, which means expensive veggies weren’t exactly in the budget.
Not to mention, matriarch Michelle never cooked. Nope, she left that up to her children. In a 2013 blog post on “Meal Plans and Involving the Kids, Jill’s mom revealed she rarely lifted a finger in the kitchen. I mean, why bother when you have that many kids, right?
“We usually have teams of three or four kids that’ll work together on the cooking,” she explained at the time. “If you get more than that, there are really just too many cooks in the kitchen! There’s a leader and then the rest of them follow the instructions of the leader. We label everything so that whoever is in there can find things and know where they belong when they’re doing cleanup.”
In other words, Jill was making tater tot casserole as soon as she was able to see above the counter. Here’s to hoping Izzy and Sam won’t be cooking anytime soon…
