Step 1: Assemble your ingredients! (I doubled the recipe because I always freeze leftovers for later. Cooking in bulk is always easier for me in the long run!) (I made some changes to the actual recipe I got from the boards because as you can see, I only had half a jar of salsa and I used a massive amount of chicken.)
- 2 lbs of FROZEN chicken breast (4 breasts)
- Can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- Can of green chilies
- Can of diced tomatoes
- Jarred salsa
- Cumin, to taste (not pictured)
- Frozen corn, half a large bag (not pictured)
Step 2: Throw all the ingredients in the pot! (Yes, the chicken is supposed to be frozen! Trust me on this one!)
Step 3: Turn the pot on 'Low' and go away.
Step 4: Come back 8 - 10 hours later. (I walked into my house and was knocked over by how great my house smelled!!)
Step 5: Shred the hell out of the chicken. This was a little tricky but really you just grab two forks and go to town. The meat is really tender so it shreds really well.
Step 6: Throw it in a tortilla with your choice of fixings and enjoy! (I used RF shredded Mexican cheese and FF sour cream, but if I had any sliced avocado that would have been amazing!)
This recipe made 8 servings of three large tacos. I put a large amount in my freezer which I am super excited about! I put them into packages of two servings each for the man and I to enjoy later. (Speaking of the man, he LOVED this dinner!!)
How awesome is my freezer?? Let me tell you, it is money well spent! I bought it off Craigslist 3 years ago for $50. We keep it in the garage and I go into it daily. I could dedicate an entire blog post about how I organize my freezer and pantry. I have it down to a science, almost to the point of crazy-pants-super-OCD but not quite!
I hope you try this recipe and love it as much as I do!!
