Last week we were pretty adventurous and tried some new recipes.  We had made this one before, but I thought it was even better the second time we tried it.  This is a super easy crock pot recipe so you don’t have to start up the oven in the hot weather.  Just make it in the morning and let it cook itself — my kind of cooking!

I found the recipe in “The ‘Hood” magazine (Aug/Sept 2010 free issue).  The recipe was submitted by Carri McMahan Crum.  Give it a try, it is great.  We had enough for supper and two lunches during the week.  I don’t even typically like leftovers, and ate it twice as leftovers 😉 

Chicken Soft Tacos

1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast

1 package taco seasoning

1 can Rotel tomatoes and green chilis

12 whole wheat tortillas

Optional Toppings: sour cream, cheese, lettuce, onions


Put the chicken in a crock pot and cover with Rotel and taco seasoning.  Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or until it easily shreds.  Remove the chicken, shred it, and return it to the juice.  Stir and serve on tortillas or taco shells with your favorite taco toppings.
