Three Ingredient Chicken Taco’s

Everyone loves an easy meal.  One of my favorite’s is 3 ingredient chicken taco’s in the crock pot.  It’s easy, doesn’t require much in the amount of prep time, delicious and you can have enough for 2 simple dinners.

3 Ingredient Chicken Taco’s
4 chicken breasts
1/2 a jar of your favorite salsa (at least a cup)
1 package of taco seasoning (or 1 batch of homemade taco seasoning)

Cook on low for 8 hours (or all day while you’re gone at work).  By the time it’s done cooking, the chicken is so tender it shreds as you mix it up.  Heat up some rice and beans, and add your favorite toppings for yummy chicken taco’s.

Night Two, I made quesadilla’s with the leftover chicken and black beans.  I food processed the leftover black beans to make refried black beans, shredded cheese and added leftover chicken to tortilla’s, heated them in a skillet and had a second simple, delicious and easy meal in just a few minutes.

3 Ingredient Chicken Taco’s

Have I mentioned how much I like simple meals?  One of my favorite simple meals is 3 Ingredient Crockpot Chicken Taco’s. . . (Okay, so technically after you load down your tacos with all the side goodies it’s more than 3 ingredients, but you only have to put 3 in the crockpot).

Ingredients:
4 Chicken Breasts
1 Package of Taco Seasoning (Your own or storebought)
1 Jar of Salsa (Again, your own or storebought)

Put all in crockpot and let cook on low while you’re at work (or home or whatever) for about 8ish hours.

Wrap up in a Tortilla adding whatever goodies your heart desires (Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cheese, Pico, Avocados, Corn, Beans, Sprouts, Sour Cream, More Salsa,etc…)

Voila!  Easy meal and if you leave out the sour cream, fairly healthy too!

Cheers and Happy Eating!!!

Crockpot Pork

Being a working mom is a delicate balance.  Cooking is a necessary evil when you want to eat healthy and you live on a budget.  While I have made peace with cooking for the most part, sometimes I go through stints where I don’t want to have anything to do with it.  Luckily for me I own a crock pot!  One of my favorite simple crockpot recipes is crock pot pork.

All it takes is 1 pork loin, 1-2 cups of water, and your choice of spices, and veggies (this of course is optional).

Put the pork loin in the crockpot and generously sprinkle on some spices (garlic, pepper, chili powder, tony’s, whatever you like) add enough water to cover the pork loin about ¾ of the way (about 1-2 cups depending on the size of your crockpot). I also like to throw in onion, red pepper, carrots and potatoes so I have a fully cooked meal when I get home.

Easy Peasy.

Cheers and Happy Eating.
