Crockpot Chicken Tacos


Crockpot recipe #3 is Chicken Tacos.  I like mine on a bed of lettuce with sour cream, black olives, salsa, grated cheese, guacamole..all those yummy Mexican food toppings.  Tim and the kids like theirs in a flour tortilla with lots of cheese.

Crockpot Chicken Tacos
4-5 chicken breasts (I use frozen)
1 c. chicken broth
Ranch dressing packet
Taco seasoning packet
Frozen pepper mix (or you can cut up fresh ones)

Place chicken in the bottom
Dump in ranch dressing packet, taco seasoning packet and frozen pepper mix
Pour chicken broth over mixture

Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours
Shred when done
*It also tastes good with stew meat instead of chicken

I like to fix Rotel along with this.  Here's the recipe...

1/2 pkg. of Velveeta cheese
1 can of Rotel

Cut up velveeta into cubes
Place velveeta in a microwave container
Pour in can of rotel
Microwave covered for 2 min. 30 sec, stir, repeat
Make sure and watch that it doesn't bubble over
You can also put this in a crockpot on LOW for an hour or 2.  Good party snack.

Serve with tortilla chips

-You can always spice up recipes with some cayenne pepper or in this one add in some salsa

-Most of the time, I make my crockpot recipes the day/night before and place it in the fridge overnight.  Especially on work days.  Then I (or the sitter) take it out of the fridge and turn it on in the morning.  Makes mornings go much smoother.  Just a tip :)
