Today, my house smells so good you might want to EAT IT because it's CHICKEN TACO DAY. It occurred to me, as I woke from the most refreshing 15 minute power nap of all time and was overtaken by the wonderful aroma of my favorite chicken tacos simmering downstairs, that I had yet to share this ridiculously easy, indisputably delicious crock pot recipe on ye old blog. And sharing is caring, and I'm nothing if not a giver ... so here it is! (You're welcome in advance.)
What you need:
-chicken (6 tenderloins or 3 breasts), frozen or thawed
-chicken taco seasoning (can substitute with regular, but chicken is best)
-one container of pico (can substitute a can of Rotel if you're in a pinch/don't know what pico is because I sure didn't before I moved to Tex-ico)
-a crock pot
Cover the bottom of the crock pot with the chicken taco seasoning. Set the chicken on top. Dump the pico over that. Then pour in 1/4 cup of olive oil and another 1/4 cup of water. Resist the urge to stir, just leave it be. Then set your crock pot on low for about 4-6 hours (I use thawed chicken and it's always ready in 4). Remove chicken at the end of 4-6 hours, shred, and put back into the crock pot. Stir it all up and let it cook another 30 minutes or so. Done! Top with cheese, olives, sour scream, etc. and eat your tacos, then send me money ($20 increments, please!) in thanks for giving you your new favorite recipe EVER.
