CROCK POT CHICKEN TACO SALAD

March 12, 2014

Slow cooker dinners are like being lifted on to an eagle’s wings to soar over my to do list. It parallels the thrill of glory when my husband offers to do the grocery shopping. SO MUCH WORK AND LIFTING TO ACQUIRE OUR FOODS.

(Speaking of husbands, these enchiladas are kind of David’s specialty!)

Here I am doing mexi in the crock.  This flavorful shredded chicken and black beans plus lots of taco salad toppings.

    What salsa are you using???

    • Rachel Schultz

      Just one of the fresh ones in the produce section of the grocery store!

  • Chris

    Hey there! I’m wanting to make this tonight but I just had one question! Am I supposed to cook the chicken and shred it prior or just add the raw chicken to the crockpot with all the other ingredients?

    Thanks!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Shred after!

      • Chris

        Sorry to bother you again but one last question:

        Do you drain the black beans before putting them in the crock pot? I just wanted to make sure I didn’t end up with soup! :)

        • Rachel Schultz

          Yep, drain ’em.

  • Chris

    Quick question on this, should the chicken be already cooked and shredded or should I put the raw chicken in with everything else? Thanks!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Goes in the crock raw!

  • this is definitely one of my favorite! Thanks for posting this recipe! will try this out tomorrow!

  • Courtney

    This looks really good and super easy! Are the black beans canned or dry? Thanks!

    • Rachel Schultz
