I had three chicken breasts in the fridge that I picked up from a local farm store on Thursday. I tossed them in the crock pot with a packet of Frontera skillet taco seasoning for ground beef. Totally cheaterly!! Not only did I take the easy way out by using a packet, but I felt like a rebel because I wasn't using a skillet and surely wasn't using ground beef. I didn't season the chicken. I emptied the packet of sauce on top of the chicken, put the lid on, and let it cook on low for 6 hours. Near the end of cooking, I took two forks and shredded the chicken so it could stew in the sauce for a bit.
I picked up a package of white corn taco shells and prepped the toppings prior to dinner. I used bagged salad mix and ran a knife over it to finely chop it. I also diced red onion & vine ripe tomato and set them in the fridge an hour before dinner. While I should be avoiding cow's milk dairy, I opted for an aged cheddar that I grated and set aside as well.
Right before dinner, I threw the taco shells in the oven to crisp them and mashed a couple of avocados with my Favorite Four (sea salt, white pepper, cumin & granulated garlic). All I had to do when it was time for dinner was put everything on the table. Easy peasy. And, they were SO flippin' GOOD!
