Crockpotgasm

'Twas a weekend of crockpotting.

And a successful one at that. First is the obvious crockpot dish -- corned beef. You throw the meat and spices in the pot, throw in some water, cook on low for 8 hours, and bam, done. I use the meat water to boil potatoes, carrots, and cabbage, and then we feast. 'Tis a tradition.

 A portion of our Irish feast. The remainder is in the pot.


But this next crockpot recipe is something new I found on a website called Pinterest. Maybe you've heard of it.

I JEST.

Of course you've heard of Pinterest. You either think it's the best thing you have ever seen in your entire life, or 'twill be the ruination of the human race. Related: Why does everyone have their panties in a bunch about Pinterest? Humans! Silence!

This recipe is aptly called: Crockpot Chicken Tacos and it comes from a blog called Chocolate Therapy. 

Here is what is awesome about Crockpot Chicken Tacos:

1) Tastes awesome.
2) Hella easy.


 Yes, that is raw meat. Sorry. 

The crockpot portion of this recipe contains three simple ingredients:

1) Chicken.
2) a packet of taco seasoning.
3) a jar of salsa. I used Herdez. When my husband tasted this he asked me to remember to always use Herdez because this recipe is the shitty bomb. That's a good thing, by the way.




Raw meat turns into THIS! The breasts get very tender and you can shred 'em up in a jiffy.


And then ... you slap the chicken in a small flour tortilla, throw on whatever you like ... I used lettuce, salsa, avocado, cheese, and sour cream. Tomatoes would be nice but I was out. 


 As I said, it is the shitty bomb. In a really good way. 

Leftovers can be used for burritos, salads, tostadas, sandwiches, scrambles, etc, etc. 'Tis good. 
Really 'tis. 



 And in case you are unaware...
 Green Valley Organics is making a really delicious lactose-free sour cream these days. 
This is a godsend to my husband, because regular sour cream makes his butt explode! 


Toodles!

  1. I might have to make that chicken recipe...it looks strikingly similar to something my roommate made the other week from a recipe she found on Pinterest.

  4. I always feel like chicken breasts in the crock pot get dried out because there such a lean cut of meat? What do you think?
