Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

Slow cooked chicken tacos are easy to make and easy to love.

With all respect to Wholly Guacamole, it is good but expensive for a family; these would be good without the guacamole, too. Or any taco filling could be made ahead and reheated, with other toppings chopped and in the fridge to be assembled.

When I cook something that can be frozen afterwards I always cook enough for two dinners. We'll eat one and then freeze the other. The next week we only have to let it defrost a little and throw it into the oven. Casseroles work best for this. Some dinners I will wrap the leftovers in a tortilla, wrap it in tinfoil, then throw it in the freezer. It's an easy microwave burrito that tastes better the store ones (and healthier).

I'm in the same boat, I work 12 hour overnight shifts 7p-7a, and am planning ahead things that can go in the slow cooker or be thrown in the oven while I'm getting ready. Another good one is throw some chicken breasts in the crock pot with a package of taco seasoning and 1/2 a jar of salsa. Shred it once it's cooked-it's good hot in tacos and burritos, and is good cold over a salad.
