crock pot tacos

IMG_4925.JPG crock%20pot%20tacos%202.jpg

I got this recipe from my friend Vella.  And I'm pretty sure I've since shared it with every breathing human I've encountered.  Because it takes 5 minutes of prep.  On a busy day it is a heaven-send to come home to something that required so little effort and is still so delicious!

4 frozen chicken breasts (you don't even have to thaw!)
1 15-oz. can corn
1 15-oz. can black beans (I always double this)
1 16-oz. jar salsa

Place all ingredients in crock pot on low for 4-6 hours.  Shred chicken and stir.  Place in soft flour tortillas with favorite toppings (cheese, lettuce, sour cream, guacamole).  Today I didn't have salsa, so I substituted Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies...and on days when I don't have tortillas we like this dished up in a bowl.  Sometimes I also add taco seasoning, chili powder, or cumin.

We ate this last night. I confess, I was not expecting these to be so good. I wolfed down two before I could stop myself. Had two more for lunch today. Yikes!

By the way, the pinto has nothing on his darker cousin.

This is such a great dinner for a busy night! It took absolutely no time to put together and was really delicious. All my kids enjoyed it, too. This will probably be on our menu weekly.

Hey Amy, this has become my "get out of jail free" card meals because it's so easy. Today I made it using green enchilada sauce instead of the salsa and it was a tasty twist on it. --Jill

Amy,do you drain the beans and corn?

March 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

I've done this in every possible way. When I want it less soupy, I drain it all. But usually I just throw it all in.

I'm making these tonight! I'm using my homemade salsa.
