Hopefully you are not getting sick of me posting this recipe. Oops I Made it Again, Crock Pot Chicken Taco’s.
When ever I want a dinner that will make a lot of leftovers, I always go to this one. I am traveling with my cousins for an out-of-state family wedding and Jeff is staying home so I wanted something that he could throw together while I am gone.
I will be unplugged for the rest of this week though the weekend, I want to be present and really enjoy my family time with my cousins. I do not get to see them that often so I want to devote every second to having fun and family time.
This is 3 chicken breast. After they cook in the crock I just pull out the breasts and shred them up. You could also shred them right up in the crock along with the mix.
One thing I was missing was the black beans. I thought I had a can on hand, but was totally out, that is normally a staple in my pantry so was bummed when I realized I was out. So I just made a trip to the store and grabbed a can and added them after everything else had already cooked up. I heated them up for a few minutes to soften them up, but they are ready to eat right out of the can.
Assemble on a tortilla and add shredded cheese and you have a healthy easy meal for the next few days.
Keeping the fridge stocked with foods that Jeff can make for dinner’s while I am gone makes me feel better about leaving him behind so he can work and take care of the dogs. Plus I am Italian so I have the deep seeded need to feed people.
Here’s the Recipe:
Crock Pot Chicken Taco’s
This recipe makes 8 really large taco’s.
- 1 envelope taco seasoning, or seasoned to your taste
- 2 to 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies or a jar of salsa (16 oz)
- 1 can black beans
- 1 can of corn
Dump everything into a crock pot and give it a little stir to blend the seasoning with the salsa or can of tomatoes. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the chicken should shred easily when stirred with a fork. During the last hour of cooking add a can of corn and can of black beans.
