Crock Pot Chicken Tacos: An Easy and Delicious Recipe!

I have made this often in the last couple years and have finally found the perfect combination of ingredients to make this one of our favorite family meals. I have tried a lot of different taco seasonings and salsas. It is not too spicy so it's kid-friendly. Ellie loves them plus she has fun adding the toppings. I also found the best corn tortillas at Whole Foods. I've tried others and this dish wasn't the same so they have to be good! The key is to warm them in the pan before serving.

Crock Pot Chicken Tacos
 (serves 4)

 2 lbs skinless/boneless chicken breasts
1 jar Trader Joe's chunky salsa
1 packet southwest taco seasoning (Whole Foods)
Corn tortillas

Mix all ingredients in the crock pot. I will usually use 3/4 of the seasoning because I don't want it to be overpowering (this is based on past experience). Cook on high 4 hours or until the chicken can shred easily. Warm tortillas on both sides in a frying pan. Add toppings of choice (I use shredded cheese and avocado).

I have been keeping extra jars of salsa and seasoning in my cabinet because we love this dish so much. It has become my go-to meal for busy days.
