Last weekend I was looking for an easy recipe to make for Cinco De Mayo and came across this delicious chicken taco recipe! I did a quick google search and came across this recipe from Taste of Home- it seemed easy enough and have good reviews so I figured I would give it a try.
1 pound chicken breast
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 jar chunky salsa
1/4 cup frozen corn
1/2 jar black beans
Mix the lime juice with the chili powder and pour it over the chicken in the crock pot-- let it cook about 4-5 hours on low then take it out and shred the meat. Place the chicken back in the crock pot and add in the salsa, corn, and black beans & cook for another 30-45 minutes on low.
It seriously takes like five minutes to make the entire thing and the hardest part is shredding the chicken-- which isn't hard at all! I recommend using a chunky salsa because then you have the onions and peppers mixed in without the hassle of having to chop them beforehand.
You can top it with lettuce, cheese, sour cream, or whatever other taco toppings you enjoy! I'm on a low dairy diet currently so no cheese for me this time but it was delicious with lettuce!
