Crockpot Chicken Tacos

A friend of mine on Twitter posted this simple recipe so I tried it with the chicken breasts I had in the fridge.

Easy peasy and something to make when you’re sick and tired of chicken breasts the plain old way… with a vegetable and a starch.

Throw all this in the crockpot early in the morning and then go do your thing, baby!

Ingredients:

2 large chicken breasts

1- 16 ounce salsa (any kind, I used Old El Paso)

1- Taco seasoning package

No need to add water, except for maybe a dash to clean out the salsa jar…

Directions: 

Pour salsa and taco seasoning packet in crockpot and stir

Rinse chicken breasts, place on top of the salsa and cover

Turn on High for 4 hours or Low for 6-8 hours

When chicken is done, cut into strips or rip with a fork and a knife while still in crockpot

Put into taco-sized flour tortillas (or even hard taco shells) and top them off with:

Toppings I used: 

Lettuce, shredded

Cheddar Cheese

Black olives, sliced

Avocado, mashed

Tomatoes, chopped

Sour cream

Hot Sauce

… and anything else you might like on a taco!

I served mine with a side of Spanish Rice and Mexican Style Corn Bread! YUMMY!
