Fun Food Friday- Mexican Crock Pot Chicken

If you need a nice and easy, delicious and healthy meal, this is a great one. And the best part is you just dump the ingredients into a crockpot, turn it on, walk away for a couple of hours, and dinner is ready! It's great with homemade tortillas which you can find the recipe for here but store bought ones work great too, either for tacos, burritos or quesadillas (we did all 3 :)). So if you want an easy delicious meal, try this one out!
Ingredients: Chicken (I used frozen but fresh works too, you just wouldn't need to cook it as long), Rotel, Black Beans, Green Chilies, Chili Beans and Taco Seasoning

To a crockpot add 4 chicken breasts...

A can of Chili beans (which are just pinto beans in chili sauce)...


Black Beans...

and Green Chilies...

Doesn't that just look so pretty :)

Sprinkle with a packet of taco seasoning

Stir together

Then just cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours

After that time take the chicken out...

And shred with 2 forks

Return the chicken to the crockpot...

And mix all together

It works great on quesadillas (which is easier for the boys to eat than tacos)

Micah of course doesn't like chicken so he had a cheese and tomato quesadilla, silly boy

I went really healthy an did mine as a burrito on a whole wheat low carb tortilla with lettuce, tomato and a little cheese
It was quite delicious

Steve made tacos with lettuce, tomato, cheese and sour cream

What great looking tacos Steve made. And he said they tasted just as good as they looked! :)
Mexican Crockpot Chicken

Cover with lid and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low (if using thawed chicken cook 3 hours on high and 6 hours on low). Remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to crockpot. Use as taco, burrito or quesadilla filling with lettuce, cheese, tomato and sour cream.
