Taco Tuesday! {recipe}

Yesterday we had yummy tacos! And most Tuesdays if you were to pop in at dinner time, you would smell the lovely aromas of our Taco Tuesday dinner.We LOVE Mexican food in this house…probably why we have tacos once a week :)

What you need:
-favorite salsa (we use Herdez if we don’t have homemade salsa on hand)
-corn tortillas
-cooking spray
-salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder
-1 tsp lime juice
-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
-chopped lettuce, tomato, onion, and avacado
-shredded cheese

Makin’ the Chicken:
1. season your chicken breasts with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder
2. turn your crockpot on low and spray the inside with cooking spray
3. place whole chicken breasts into crockpot and pour lime juice over both breasts
4. pour salsa over chicken…enough so that the breasts are covered (top and bottom)
5. cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours
6. when chicken is done, turn off crockpot and shred (in the juices/salsa) using 2 forks

Makin’ the shells:
1. spray a pan with cooking spray and place corn tortilla in pan
2. after that side is finished, spray the other side with cooking spray and flip
3. when both sides are browned, fold in half with spatula 

Makin’ the Tacos:
1. put shredded chicken into tacos
2. top with all your favorites…lettuce, cheese, tomato, onion, and avacado.

*Great with Spanish rice and chips and salsa*

Muy Bueno!!

  2. Yummy! Tacos in the crock pot…I am going to try that! My kids will love a break from ground beef. :) Thanks! Lisa~

  3. Sounds easy enough! I will give it a go tomorrow after I round up a tomato and let you know how it turns out :)

    Thanks for stopping by with a comment on my swaddle blanket! BTW I love the cape and mask idea, congrats on being featured by those great blogs!

  4. These sound great! I always forget to start off my chicken in the morning in the crockpot smothered with something yummy. Makes things sooo easy come 5:00! I’m definitely going to try these. Thanks!

  7. Killing me! I LOVE tacos! Looks delicious =-)

    Happy weekend!

  8. Looks yummy! I like Herdez too…it’s the closest thing to homemade salsa you can find in a can! I’m sure David would like it if we did tacos ONCE a week rather than every other day! (This baby ALWAYS wants chicken tacos!)

    ***Next time you are at the store, buy “COTIJO” mexican cheese, it is THE BEST on top of chicken tacos!!!

  9. Love it! Looks like a good recipe. I’ll have to add it to my to make list! Thank you for linking up to Topsy Turvy Tuesdays!
