Easy Crock Pot Chicken Tacos

Happy New Year! December was a family and friend filled whirlwind, and now we’re slowly getting our home “undecked” and back to normal.

Here’s a super easy recipe I adapted from Pinterest that’s perfect on a winter night (preferably a snowy winter night!)

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Easy Crock Pot Chicken Tacos

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 jar of your favorite salsa
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons of Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix)
  • juice of one lime
  • cilantro to taste, chopped

Add the chicken breasts, taco seasoning, the jar of salsa, onion, and lime juice in the crockpot, stir and cook on high (4-6 hrs.) or low (6-8 hrs.) Once finished, you should be able to shred the chicken with a fork. Stir in cilantro just before serving, if desired. Place meat mixture in tortillas and top with your favorite toppings!

Enjoy!

Real Easy Salsa

This is a fresh, easy salsa that requires no cooking, tomato peeling, etc.
Gotta use up the cilantro before it bolts on me!

Ingredients

  • 4-5 medium, ripe tomatoes, chopped, seeds removed
  • 1/2 large Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (less if you’re not a big fan)
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped, seedy core removed
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped, veins and seeds removed
  • Juice of 2 small limes
  • salt to taste

Directions:

In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. If you wish, you can pulse this a few times in the food processor, but do not over-process or it will get too watery. You may wish to taste test this first with 1/2 the jalapeno, then add more heat if needed. I did not add garlic to mine, but you can certainly add a minced clove if you wish.
