Crockpot Taco Chicken Recipe


Since we’re trying to clear out the fridge before we move this weekend (eek!) I’ve been trying not to buy too much food to get us through the week. That’s where crockpot meals have come to the rescue! I can make one thing in the crockpot on Monday and it will last us through the week. Last week’s recipe was taco chicken. You can eat it over rice, with chips, in a tortilla or by itself. It’s so good you will want to try it every way!

– 2 chicken breasts
– 1 16oz jar of salsa
– 1 can black beans, drained
– half a bag frozen corn
– 2 garlic cloves, chopped
– 1 tbsp chili powder
– 1/2 tbsp cumin
– 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
– white rice
– toppings: shredded cheese, cilantro, sour cream, guacamole

  1. Put everything except the rice and toppings in the crockpot, make sure the chicken is covered.
  2. Cook for 8 hours on low.
  3. Cook the rice before the chicken is done.
  4. When chicken is done, shred it with a fork and stir in crockpot.
  5. Create the bowl by first adding rice followed by the chicken mixture and top with any toppings (I had cheese and cilantro)Enjoy!

Memorial Day Recipe: Pulled Pork Sliders

Memorial day is fast approaching! If you haven’t had time to come up with something to cook for the occasion yet then I’m here to help! This crockpot pulled pork recipe couldn’t be easier. You can throw everything in the crock pot first thing in the morning and enjoy the rest of your day outside while a delicious meal is busy cooking itself inside.

These pulled pork sliders are not only delicious but the recipe makes a ton of food. One pork loin is enough for around 8-10 people. When we make it for just us two we tend to be eating it for the entire week (and I’m not complaining)!

I served it with cucumber avocado salad (recipe here) which would be a great easy side dish for a Memorial day party!
