This one is easy peasy!!

  • This is a true dump and go Slow Cooker meal.
  • In slow cooker place chicken first then pour over taco seasoning and salsa

I love using this black bean and corn salsa. But you can use your favorite jar of salsa any will do.

  • Place lid on slow cooker and cook for 6 hours on low
  • Once chicken is done mix together and shred chicken with meat masher or forks.

Serve this one buffet style so you don't have to dirty any more dishes. They come to the slow cooker and build their taco with all the toppings.

If you are shredding your own cheese, I would highly recommend this CHEESE SHREDDER it is so easy to use, shreds cheese at ease and you can throw in the dishwasher its my absolute fav!

We shredded lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and sour cream and if we have them avocados.

Side Idea: Tonight we did a simple tortilla chips and salsa. However, you could do some spanish rice as well.
