Crockpot Shredded Chicken Tacos

This is one of mine and Jared's personal favorites! It's easy, cheap, and there are plenty of leftovers so I can use it for other stuff too! I love recipes that last so that we can use it for lunches, or other recipes. So I hope you all like this as much as we do!

Ingredients:
3 Chicken Breasts
16oz. of Salsa (I use Pace)
1/2 packet of taco seasoning (I use Old El Paso)

Directions:
Pour the salsa and taco seasoning into a crockpot and mix. Place chicken breasts in and spoon the mixture on top until they are covered.

Cook on High for 4-6 hours or Low for 6-8.
It might not look very pretty but just wait! Now take two forks and shred it. It should just fall apart super easy!
And there you have it! Shredded chicken for tacos!

Three chicken breasts will feed about 4-6 people depending on how much they eat. If you have 2 very hungry marines in the house, then this will only feed 3.... Usually when it's just Jared and I, we use the leftovers for Tortilla Soup, I'll post that recipe some other time!

Hope you enjoy!

  3. Hi, I also found you on Pinterest! I just recently got married and I've been praying for God to help me come up with something besides chicken Alfredo from a can every night... I love your blog, I like the simplicity of your recipes such a breath of fresh air that I don't have to Google the ingredients so that I know what it looks like, so that I can find it in the store... Amazing blessing, thank you!

    1. Hi! I'm glad you enjoy my blog! I love hearing from people who read my blog! I think finding recipes that had ingredients I could find easily was one of the hardest things when I first started cooking. Or some recipes would call for ingredients that were just really expensive! I'm so glad my blog could help, Thanks again for sharing! :)
