So I have a new favorite crockpot recipe. It is, in my opinion, a new staple just like our Chicken Chili.
I warmed this up for days following the night I made it. The leftovers are great! It is so easy, yet it is so good. And the fact that I have learned a simple trick to make regular ol' tortilla shells into baked tortilla shells - well, the combo is magical.
Magical, I tell you.
For the baked shells I just turn the oven on to 300 degrees, sprayed the shells on both sides with Olive Oil cooking spray (I'm sure Pam would work too), and then draped them over the oven rack for about 10 minutes (or to your desired "crunchiness") like so...
I don't know how I didn't think of this a long time ago.
Onto the Easy Crockpot Chicken Tacos. All you need is:
1 pack of taco seasoning (although I keep an extra pack on hand in case I want to add extra)
6 pieces of boneless chicken breast or about 2ish pounds
1 16oz jar of salsa (I used regular Chi Chi's)
Cook on low for 8-10 hours (Especially if chicken is frozen. You might want to even cook on high for a few hours in that case.) Or you can cook on low for 4-6 hours if the chicken is completely thawed.
They are fantastic. Truly the best, and most importantly, the easiest taco dinner I've made in a long time!
Here is a pic from the original recipe website, ours didn't last long enough for pictures :).
They are a tad messy, which is proof that they are fantastic. Messy foods are always the best, right??
It was great in hard shells, soft shells, and even in a mexi-salad!
