I'm a major offender of ice cream for dinner. Or cake for dinner. Sometimes I even go for the s'mores. Though it does help me satisfy a major sweet tooth, I mostly go this route because of the major convenience.
But this year I've rediscovered the crock pot & when I walk up my three flights of stairs & open the door of the studio to smell a delicious dinner, ready to eat, I no longer have an excuse. Today I wanted to share my favorite crock pot recipe to date: chicken tacos.
When I went over to a friend's for the Super Bowl, (salted oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in hand) someone introduced me to these tacos. & my life was changed. You will need:
In the crockpot:
- Three frozen chicken breasts
- Your favorite salsa
- Frozen corn
- 1 can of your favorite beans, rinsed
- 1 package of taco seasoning mix
For the tacos:
- The crockpot chicken
- Taco sized flour tortillas (did you even know they had these?!)
- Taco fixins' (I used rice, lettuce, cheese & sour cream)
Like all crockpot recipes, this one is simple. Combine all five ingredients & let it slow cook while you're at work. Shred the chicken when you come home & let it sit for another hour while you cook the rice. Then... eat tacos.
So, the consensus: ice cream for dinner is good, but these tacos are better. What are your other favorite crock pot recipes? I want to try!
