This time of year sure is super busy. Between all the holiday events to go to, it's also all the shopping, wrapping, baking, decorating, and so on. I need something that is quick to put on the dinner table. I try to use my crock pot as much as possible during busy times of the year. It gives me that extra hand when I need it the most.
At the office where I work we have started to have monthly themed lunches where everyone brings in a dish for the theme. Last month the theme was Mexican. I have lots of recipes for the theme but had no way to keep them warm. I decided to do these chicken tacos and they were a hit. I was asked several times how I made them. Anyone can do this!
Crock Pot Chicken Tacos
4-5 chicken breasts ( I used a bag of frozen)
1 jar of salsa (I used mild)
1 package of taco seasoning
Place the chicken breasts in the crock pot. (I added the frozen breasts) Sprinkle the taco seasoning on top of the chicken and pour over the salsa. Cook on low 6-8 hours and then shred when done.(I use two forks to shred) This will make its own liquid and will be very flavorful. Top with your favorite fixings. Enjoy!
Tip: Use the meat to make enchiladas or recipe that calls for taco meat or freeze extra for nights you need something quick.
