As a student, my time is pretty important to me and I am broke. These two facts have caused me to love cooking using a slow cooker. I can come home to a lovely meal that doesn’t make me sad and doesn’t take much time to put together. While making these tacos, I was studying at home so the delicious smell wafted into my room and kept me excited and motivated while reviewing histology.
This recipe is so easy with few ingredients that you can just throw in a slow cooker.
- 2 lb boneless chicken breast
- 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
- 16 oz salsa (I use the Tostito restaurant style)
- 1 taco seasoning packet
- Juice from 2 squeezed limes
Put the chicken into the slow cooker. Add seasoning, salsa, cilantro, and lime juice. Cook on low for 6-7 hours. Throw it on a tortilla, add fresh toppings, and enjoy!
An extra bonus about this meal – it also takes great reheated. I prepared a bunch then ate it for lunches throughout the week. I hope you enjoy the tacos as much as I did.
