CROCKPOT CHICKEN TACOS
Okay everyone, this recipe is a MUST for your menu this week. If you've never tried it, just wait! It is seriously so delicious! My family and I usually have it once a week! It's almost funny because at this point friends who come over for dinner either request that I make it or they already know that it is probably what we are having for dinner that night anyways! A staple is an understatement and you will see why!
These are great served as a regular taco on either a soft whole wheat tortilla shell or even on a hard shell taco. They are great made into a quesadilla and it tastes wonderful served over a bed of lettuce! Whatever way you decide to make it, you won't be disappointed!
Here you go!
Crockpot Chicken Tacos
1 lb. chicken breasts
1 can of organic black beans
1 container of fresh salsa
1 packet taco seasoning
1/3 brick of cream cheese
1/2 cup water (only use water if chicken is thawed)
Put everything in the crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours! You can use frozen or fresh chicken breasts. But remember, if you are using frozen, omit the water :) It makes it really runny if you use the water with the frozen chicken.
About 20 minutes before serving stir in the cream cheese!
We usually have some salsa, tomatoes, onions and lettuce on ours. We also use greek yogurt in place of sour cream! If you have never tried to use plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream, you're missing out!! Try it! You can't even tell the difference, but greek yogurt is so much better for you!
