Another fantastic thing about crockpots is the fact that it is extremely easy to prepare a crockpot meal hours, days, or even weeks before you actually want to eat it. The solution?
Yes, all you have to do is throw a bunch of ingredients into a plastic bag and throw it in the freezer until you’re ready to eat it. It’s that easy.
Crockpot Chicken Tacos
feeds 6 people, 30 minutes of prep, 4-8 hours cook time
2 pounds of chicken
12 ounces of salsa
1 sliced jalapeno
12 ounces of beer (Corona in this case!)
1 tablespoon of cumin
1 tablespoon of red pepper
1 tablespoon of chili powder
1 teaspoon of oregano
1/2 an onion, chopped
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 lime, squeezed for juice
Preparing this in a crockpot is easy. Simply throw everything into it and allow it to cook for at least 4 hours. Shred the chicken and return to the crockpot, then allow to cook for at least 2 more hours.
If preparing this over the stove, throw all the ingredients into pot and cook until the entire mixture is boiling and the chicken is fully cooked. Shred the chicken and return to the pot for at least half an hour longer.
Depending on how long you have to prepare this dish, you could have this chicken ready in as quickly as an hour by making it on the stovetop, but the longer it sits in the broth and seasoning, the more flavorful the chicken will be.
These tacos are made with corn tortilla shells fried on the stovetop in hot oil. They are filled with the chicken, salsa, cheese, cilantro and onions.
