Place chicken breasts and just 3 ingredients in your slow cooker - then set it and forget it!  Slow cooking not only infuses the chicken with fabulous flavor, it makes the chicken so moist and tender it practically falls apart.  The end result - taco filling that's so succulent you don't even need toppings!

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $8.38

  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Chunky Salsa or Medium Picante Sauce
  • 12 flour tortilla (6-inch), warmed

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Top with your favorite taco toppings like shredded lettuce, sour cream and additional salsa.  Try a squeeze of fresh lime juice, too!
  • Step 1

    Season the chicken with the cumin and chili powder.  Place the chicken into a 6-quart slow cooker.  Pour the salsa over the chicken.

  • Step 2

    Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or until the chicken is fork-tender.  Remove the chicken to a work surface.  Using 2 forks, shred the chicken.  Serve the chicken in the tortillas.

    We were Tacos, but we were in the mood for something a little different than our usual Ground Beef (Ground Turkey) Tacos. This recipe was Super Easy, and a Big Hit for my Picky Family. They are a little over juicy...but nothing we couldn't handle. I will definitely be sharing this recipe.
