Crockpot Chicken Tacos

taco toppingsI absolutely love using the crockpot to make meals. I’ve recently coached my friend to start using the crockpot because it is nearly impossible to ruin something in the crockpot, however, all things are possible. You can even prep everything the night prior, wake up get ready for work and put that baby on low for the entire day. By the time you get home, dinner is ready, WAHO! If you have been following my blog, I think it is clear that one of my favorite type of cuisines is Mexican food and most defiantly tacos. I could eat tacos every day for the rest of my life and be perfectly content.



After you gather all of your ingredients you will want to place the 3lbs of chicken on the bottom of the crock pot. Chop up ½ the bundle of cilantro and add it to a mixing bowl. Next in the same mixing bowl you will add the 16 oz of homemade salsa (or your favorite jar of salsa), taco seasoning and squeeze the two limes. Mix the contents of your mixing bowl and pour over the 3lbs of chicken breast. Lastly cover and cook the on low for 7 hours or on high for 4 hours.

Once you have cooked it for the set amount of time you will want to shred your chicken. I find it easiest if you get two forks and shred each chicken breast.  Once you have shredded all your chicken add it back to your crockpot and stir it up with the juicy contents. Serve on blue corn tortillas with your usual topping such as sour cream, lettuce, guacamole, homemade salsa or onions.
