Crockpot Recipe My Kids LOVE: Chicken Taco Mix

Here is a simple and healthy crockpot recipe that's one of my kid's favorites. This is packed with protein and veggies and takes less than 5 minutes of prep. The crockpot does the rest of the work. Perfect for a busy week night dinner (or a weekend dinner at my kids request).

You will need:
6-8 chicken breasts
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can corn (I use 1/2 lb of frozen corn)
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can stewed tomatoes (or any kind of tomatoes work)
1 can low sodium chicken broth
*I also put in chopped red, green, and yellow peppers but it's just as good without

Put thawed, uncooked chicken breasts in crockpot. Drain can of corn, beans (rinse the beans), tomatoes, and add to chicken in Crockpot. Put in chicken broth and seasoning, mix together. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Shred chicken and enjoy.
*The chicken will easily shred, almost falling apart, letting you know it's done and thoroughly cooked. You can also put frozen chicken breasts in, but will take longer to cook.




This chicken taco mix is great to eat in tortillas, a hard shell taco, or just by itself. I like to add lettuce and eat it as a chicken taco salad while the kids just eat it by itself with a tortilla on the side. This makes enough for plenty of leftovers too!
