Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos - Only 4 Ingredients!

Many of our kids are going back to school!  That means, busy-ness, homework, after-school activities, and sports.  Schedules can get a little crazy .... at least in our house. 

This recipe is perfect for those busy nights when you don't want to stand in the kitchen before or after those activities.  Put everything into the slow-cooker earlier in the day, and everyone can eat dinner as they are able. 

AND .....

Four simple ingredients.  That's all!

That's all you need to create these slow-cooker chicken tacos:  chicken, salsa, garlic, and Mexican hot sauce. 

And, for extra-healthy measure, you can serve this inside of lettuce cups instead of corn taco shells. 

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos - Only 4 Ingredients!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos - Only 4 Ingredients!

3 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup Mexican chili sauce (like Cholula or Valentina)
2 cups salsa
2 tbsp. chopped garlic

Very simple!  Place all four ingredients into your slow-cooker.  Let it cook for about 6-8 hours on low heat.  After it cooks, remove the chicken from the slow-cooker and shred it with two forks (or using a standing mixer).  Add the chicken back to the slow-cooker and add more Mexican sauce to your taste.

You may also garnish with a little fresh cilantro if you desire.  Enjoy!

(21 Day Fixers:  Measure out your RED CONTAINER for the chicken.  You may also count 1/2 of a purple for the salsa.)
