Chicken Chili Tacos

I am such a fan of making tacos in the slow cooker.  Seriously, nothing can be simpler for supper!  Plus, a taco bar just seems to satisfy everyone in my family.  So, cook up your chicken all day, then shred it and add it back to your slow cooker along with some yummy ingredients, cook a bit more and then top with your favorite garnishes.  #givemealltheguacamole Happy dinnertime! This recipe serves four. Shopping List 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast enough water to cover 1 (15 oz) can of chili beans (do not drain) 1…

Spicy Chicken & Corn Tacos

Spicy Chicken & Corn Tacos

Me oh my!  These tacos were so good!!
