Baja Chicken Tacos

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

Tacos are a pretty common dinner choice in our house. When all else fails, tacos will be eaten. We love these Baja Chicken Tacos. The chicken is slow cooked in a crock pot all day, so the only thing that I have to do is prep the toppings and cook the sides of rice and black beans.They are not as heavy as beef tacos , which I love.  These tacos are so flavorful. We add shredded cheese, onions marinated in fresh lime juice, lettuce, cilantro and salsa. Sometimes, if I do not have taco shells, we use lettuce leaves and make Baja Chicken Lettuce Wraps. The lettuce wraps are a great option for lunch.

Baja Chicken Tacos
2 1/2 - 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
5 4oz cans green chilies
2 T taco seasoning ( I use Penzey's brand)
1 T ground cumin
Taco shells and toppings of your choice

Place the chicken , green chilies, taco seasoning and ground cumin in a crock pot. Place lid on tight and cook on high 4 hours or low 6. Take chicken out  and transfer to a platter to shred.Add shredded chicken back to the crockpot juices, stir and let it cook for an addition 10 minutes or so to heat back up. Serve shredded chicken in tacos with toppings of your choice.
