My first blog on ParentMap.com - I have deemed myself the new PM quick and easy meal creator. I hope to share, from time to time, easy to make tried/true recipes - and that require very few ingredients. Feel free to tell me what you think of a recipe or add your own variations in the comments. Together... we will reclaim the dinner hour.
Toddy’s “fool proof” slow cooker chicken tacos
1 package of taco seasoning
3-4 chicken breasts
1 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 can black beans – drained
1 red pepper (optional) – cut thin- so kids don’t know it’s in there
1 can green chilies (optional)
Put all ingredients above in your crock pot and give it a good stir. Cook on low 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Remove chicken and use 2 forks to shred the chicken breasts into small pieces. and remove skin/bones if not boneless. Put shredded chicken back in the crock pot. Serve mixture in warm flour tortillas with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
Or get fancy and put small bowls on the counter with sour cream, avocado, cheese, salsa, and other favorite fixings - and let each person “make their own” taco using the chicken as the beginning.
