Crockpot Chicken for Burritos or Tacos

Hey everyone! I have missed you so far this year! :) I had a request to have more crock pot recipes on the blog, so I thought I'd start out with one today. This recipe is easy and makes for a great Mexican food night (Mexican food is pretty much our favorite.... we have it all the time)!

2 cups Picante Sauce (16 oz. jar)
1 packet taco seasoning
4-5 frozen chicken breasts

TIP: You can make your own taco seasoning by combining 1 Tablespoon of each of the following ingredients: Cumin, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, and Onion Powder. Optional: Add in 1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper to give it some spice.

To make this recipe, throw all the ingredients into the crock pot and mix it together to coat the chicken. Then set your crock pot to low and let the chicken cook 6-8 hours.

Once the chicken is done, shred it between two forks and mix everything together to evenly coat the chicken shreds and you are ready to go!

We used ours to make Burritos and Tacos but it can be used for anything from Enchiladas to Taco Salad. It's a really versatile dish and very easy to make.

TIP: Once you assemble your burrito, "grill" it in a panini grill for a few minutes, it makes your tortilla crispy! :)

Here is a picture of my burrito, very yummy!!!

Happy Cooking
& Enjoy!
