{Slow Cooker: Chicken Tacos}

I usually work late on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Either at the office or out showing property. So, coming home and making a meal has been um, not existent on those days. Then, I saw this recipe and remembered I have a slow cooker! PTL!

What you'll need:
  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless, chicken thighs
  • 1 whole onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 (12 oz.) jar of your favorite salsa
  • 1 small can green chilies, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed 
  • Tortillas
Toppings we used:
  • 1 avocado, sliced 
  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour Cream {low fat}
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato 
  1. Place chicken in the bowl of your slow cooker. Top with salsa, chopped green chilies, cumin, onion, and garlic. Cover and set on low. Cook for 8 hours.
  2. Remove chicken from pot, shred, and return to juices. {When I opened the lid the chicken had literally fallen apart on its own. I just stirred and voila!} 
  3. Spoon chicken into tortillas, with whatever toppings your family likes. Or use the meat to make burritos, tostadas, or as filling for enchiladas.
  4. Enjoy! 
I just might cut this recipe in half next time for just the two of us. But, we do have some good leftovers :)

What slow cooker recipe have you made lately?
