Easy, Shredded Taco Beef in the Slow Cooker

Chicken tacos are a staple in my house. It’s an easy go-to when I don’t know what else to make. One week when I told my husband I was going to make them – again – he asked me, “Why don’t you ever make beef tacos?” After that, it became my mission to figure out a great, equally-easy beef taco recipe. This is the winner.

I’d seen this recipe for Oven Baked Beef Tacos from Six Sisters Stuff floating around on Pinterest.  It made my mouth water every time I saw it.  I decided a chicken version sounded great.

I’ve made these starting with raw chicken tenders that I cooked in a skillet.  And I’ve made them starting with cooked chicken that I had in the freezer.  Both ways are quick (of course, using the cooked and frozen chicken is quicker).

The first time I made them, I didn’t add any tomatoes.  I didn’t want there to be too much liquid.  But the next time, when I used cooked chicken from the freezer, they seemed a bit dry, so I added a can of drained diced tomatoes.  You really can vary these however you like.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Sloppy Slow Cooked Chicken Tacos

This recipe was created simply by standing in front of the pantry and pulling out a few likely ingredients.  I needed something that would be ready to eat when we got home, with minimal fuss required.

Oh, and I only had about 3 minutes to get it fixed and get out the door.  Ever have a morning like that?

Here’s what I used to make these Sloppy Chicken Tacos, but please feel free to alter as needed.  I really don’t think you can mess this up.  Put in whatever you have that sounds good to you.  Experiment!   [Read more...]

Lentil Tacos

Lentils cost .98 a bag.  I used about half the bag to make these tacos.  I didn’t calculate the cost of making this recipe, which feeds 6 people, but it is low.  A very rough estimate would be $4.00 total, so about 70 cents a serving.  Not bad for something this healthy and good.
