::zsa:: chicken tacos

3-4 chicken breasts
1 packet of your favorite seasoning
1 can of ro-tel

Mix the seasoning and ro-tel in the bottom of the pot and put the breasts on top.  I put mine on low at 7:00am and we eat at 5:00pm.  About 4:30, I use two forks to shred the chicken and let it absorb the juices. I also stir occasionally throughout the day.

Also, 3-4 breasts doesn't leave us with leftovers (DH, me, son, DD1), so I stretch it to 5-7 so DH and I can have it for lunch the next day.

    MMM.  I usually just boil chicken, shred, season and then put in corn tortillas and fry 'em up. 

    I want tacos now.  Boo.

    I use the same recipe but I use a cup of salsa instead of Ro-tel.  :)

    Oh and I add some water or a can of chicken broth.

    Oh yes, please remember anytime *I* have a recipe, it's the basic of the basic.  I can't get too crazy with food.  I'm trying to get DH and son to branch out and try new things, but it's a process.

    Seriously, when DH learned I put ro-tel in there, he was all "But I don't LIKE tomato" even when I told him he wouldn't taste it.  He ended up loving these tacos. ::sigh::

    I do the salsa thing too- with some jalapeno slices. 

    For mexican pork I do a couple cans of diced green chiles and taco sauce with some water.

    I like to serve with cilantro lime rice.

    Does your chicken get really dry? Whenever I make meat in the crockpot (other than say stew or chili) it gets really dry. I have a feeling my crockpot runs pretty hot but even on low I feel like that after 6 hours it's just stringy, dry, and tasteless, especially chicken.

    I don't think I've ever had a problem with anything I've put in getting dry.

    Hmm. I really wonder if it's my crockpot. I can do soups and stews just fine, but most everything else turns out sorta junky.

    I've only had that happen when I didn't have enough liquid in it.

    Yep, not enough liquid, or the top isn't on tightly enough.  My lid got warped somehow, so it doesn't *quite* fit right. Since I started using liners, the liner kindof plugs up whatever gaps are up there. Huge improvements.
