Shredded Chicken Taco Recipe for Cinco de Mayo
Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Taco Recipe:
Adapted from this recipe from Belle of the Kitchen.
2 pounds boneless chicken breasts
1 packet taco seasoning of your choice
¾ cups diced onion
1 jar salsa
⅓ cup chopped cilantro
Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker and sprinkle taco seasoning on top before adding the salsa, lime juice, and cilantro. Next, place the lid on top of your slow cooker and cook on high for four hours. Once cooked, remove chicken from slow cooker and shred it with a fork in a separate bowl. Use the juice from the slow cooker to moisten chicken as you shred it. Serve with tortillas and taco toppings of your choice like cheese, salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.
