This is one of favorite recipes because normally it serves as a double meal—and with school starting up soon, the easier I can make dinner, the better. This recipe is super easy as you can basically toss everything in the crockpot sans directions (my favorite kind of cooking). Meal number one is chicken tacos. In the morning, place 3-5 frozen chicken breasts and package of taco seasoning in the crockpot on low and let it cook all day. About an hour before dinner dump an entire jar of salsa (our favorite is On the Border) and shred the chicken (easiest way to shred chicken is with a hand mixer!) Add your fixin’s of choice, toss on a tortilla, and enjoy!
Meal number two is a chicken taco soup. With the leftover shredded chicken, I add a box of chicken broth and a can of corn. I love black beans in mine as well, so I’ll open a jar so I can add to mine (I also add jalapeños and saracha sauce—yum, spicy!) Eat on a bed of chips (or not . . . it’s good either way) and you have a yummy soup! *Note: with the second day soup, put back in the crockpot around midday, add everything together, and just let simmer all afternoon.
