Yields: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 4-6 hours

Ingredients:

4 : Chicken Breasts (roughly 1 -1.25 pounds)

1 Can : Salsa

1/2 Package : Taco Seasoning Mix, low sodium

Corn or Flour Tortillas

Cheese, optional (I use Go Veggie!)

Directions

Wash the chicken and cut off any fat

Then place the salsa, chicken and taco seasoning in crock pot.

Turn on crock-pot and cook on low for 6 hours (or high for 4 hours).

Shred Chicken  (I prefer to shred my chicken in my Kitchen Aid.  Pour ingredients in bowl, attach the metal paddle attachment and turn on medium speed for about 30 seconds. Chicken will end up perfectly shredded and ready to serve.)

Serve warm with tortillas and cheese if desired.

Tortilla Trick :: I usually use corn tortillas, but all I had in the fridge this week was flour.

To warm the perfect flour tortilla, turn on your gas stove on low (2-3) and place tortilla directly on the stove. Warn each side for about 7 seconds and flip.  You will see the tortilla start to rise and you know it is time to take off. Don’t leave on too long as your tortilla will catch on fire. Serve immediately.
