  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 can mexican style stewed tomatoes (or substitute 2 cups (475 ml) salsa)
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning
  • 8 taco shells or soft tortillas (for corn tortillas, some people like to double up when using juicy fillings)
  • Toppings:
  • diced tomatoes
  • chopped lettuce
  • chopped olives
  • shredded jack or cheddar cheese
  • Place chicken, stewed tomatoes (or salsa) and taco seasoning in crockpot.
  • Add enough water to cover chicken.
  • Cook on high for 6 hours.
  • Cook on low for 1 hour. (chicken should be extremely tender)
  • Remove chicken from crockpot and place in bowl.
  • With a fork, shred the chicken.
  • Add some of the sauce from the crockpot to the chicken and mix. Be careful how much sauce you add to the chicken; you don't want it to be watery.
  • Serve with shells and toppings and mexican rice.
The chicken in this recipe can be used for tacos, casseroles, enchiladas - anything Mexican, really.
