Crockpot Chicken Tacos

13 Aug

Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Serves: ~12 people

1 envelope Taco Seasoning (I use Old El Paso Reduced Sodium)
6 pieces Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 16-ounce jar Salsa (I switch between brands, but Newman’s Own is my favorite)

Dump everything into a crock pot and give it a little stir to blend the seasoning with the salsa. You do not need to add any water to the taco seasoning. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the chicken should shred easily when stirred with a fork.

For tacos, serve the chicken with soft flour tortillas, guacamole, lettuce, shredded cheese and/or sour cream. This is very versatile and can be used for enchiladas, nachos, tostadas, quesadillas, etc.

White Chicken Chili

14 Sep

A delicious chicken chili for the slow cooker, made with chicken, beans, and other ingredients.

Ingredients:

1 lb chicken, cut up into small chunks (I like to use boneless breasts for their “ease” and lower fat content)
1 cup chopped onion
1 can (or the equivalent) chicken broth
2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
2 tsp Cumin seed (ground will not withstand long cooking as well)
1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
3 -15oz cans white beans (great northern or cannellini), drained and rinsed
1 or 2 chopped red, green or yellow bell peppers, or combination
jalapeno chili peppers, fresh, jarred or canned, optional or ‘to taste’ (depending on how much heat you like!)

Preparation:

In a 4 or 6 quart crockery cooker combine the chicken, onions, chicken broth, garlic, cumin and oregano.
Let cook awhile on low (approx. 3-5 hours, depending on your schedule)
Add drained beans.

Now here is the important part if you don’t want mushy chili.. Add the bell peppers and jalapeno peppers (if using) no earlier than the last hour or hour and a half before serving.

Top each serving with shredded Monterey jack cheese and or broken tortilla chips if desired.

Slow Cooker Hash Brown Casserole

This is one of my favorite recipes and it was a bit hit with my family last Thanksgiving and Christmas.

This is a tasty hash brown casserole, and it’s easy to prepare and cook in the crockpot. Serve this flavorful hash brown casserole with meat or poultry, or serve it as a breakfast side dish.Feel free to use Cheddar cheese soup in place of the nacho cheese soup.

30 to 32 ounces frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
1 cup chopped onion, optional
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed nacho cheese soup, undiluted
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
8 ounces light sour cream
6 tablespoons melted butter
Preparation:

Spray the crockery insert with nonstick cooking spray or lightly grease the inside surface. Combine the thawed hash browns, onion, soups, sour cream, and melted butter. Pack into the slow cooker insert. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours.
