Shredded Chicken Taco Recipe

Yesterday I threw this together in the crockpot and it turned out delicious.  So excited to share this easy recipe with y’all!

Ingredients:

– 1 lb. of chicken breasts
– 1 can of cream of chicken soup
– 1 cup of salsa
– 1 packet of taco seasoning
– 1 can of black beans (drained)

 

Place chicken into crock pot and pour soup, salsa & drained black beans on top. Stir all ingredients together in crock pot. Pour taco seasoning on top of the mixture. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Mine was done in about 4.5 hours. Once chicken is cooked through, shred the chicken. You can shred easily with a fork, however I like to use my mixer to shred the chicken on low until it’s the desired consistency. Once shredded mix your chicken back into the soup mixture. If you like a drier chicken then use 1.5-2 lbs. of chicken breasts.
You can use your favorite toppings to make tacos, burritos or taco salads. I love to use shredded lettuce, sour cream & cheese. I crushed up nachos and made a taco salad- seriously yummy!
Here’s what the dish looked like after fully cooked and once the chicken was shredded:

    Angela, I just killed your recipe, where to find so much free time to prepare it all. You do not go to work?))))) Just one question – is the food spicy?

      Hi there! I do work.. Full time! I'm just crazy busy all the time 🙂 This is not spicy.. But if you want it to be spicy, just use spicier salsa. Thanks for reading!
