My house smells heavenly right now. Hea-ven-ly. I’ve promised a bunch of recipes for food we made over the holiday to those who were with us…and I’ll start here. Not my recipe but one of another Austin momma.
Katie’s “Killer” Chicken Taco’s
Note: I added the killer part because it’s killing me to a) stir and b) wait until dinner time
-Take 1 chicken taco seasoning packet (you can use a reg. taco seasoning packet, but it really doesn’t taste nearly as good), and cover the bottom of the crockpot.
-Lay 6 frozen tenderloins or 3 frozen breasts on top of the seasoning.
-Take one container of fresh pico (use H.E.B.’s hot variety for kick) and cover the chicken. You can use a can of rotel, but the fresh tastes better.
-Pour 1/4 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup water over the top of everything. Do not stir. (killing me I tell ya)
Simmer in crockpot for 4 to 6 hours on low. If you’re home, flip it halfway through, but not necessary. Remove chicken and shred with a fork. Stir back in, mixing everything up, and let cook/simmer for at least 30 more minutes.
We throw it on tortillas with a shredded mexican cheese blend. Great for leftovers, too.
Ok, back to proofing a birth and counting the seconds until dinner….
Sounds delicious will def try. Oh I’m still waiting for how to make smores, I know I’m lame I don’t know how to make them, LOL.
mmm- Best recipe EVER. We warm the corn tortillas in olive oil and add lettuce and sour cream. So. damn. good.
Okay, this is ridiculous, but I am not a cook..and, I was going to make this for dinner tonight. I asked everyone in my office and they no have no clue what pico is..so, can you clarify for me what exactly pico is?? I’m so embarassed to ask! LOL! It sounds yummy!
I’m totally not laughing Heather 😛 It must be a Texas thing to be able to buy it in stores (ours is in the vegetable / produce dept. You could totally make it too if you can’t find any at the grocery store premade. Google Pico de Gallo 🙂
LOL! Oh, okay…I will google it, and look for it 🙂
Many thanks so much for the recipe, I cooked that today and all my own friends loved it. Most had double helpings. Even my hubby who normally does unlike soup noodles said it is good! Maegan Elgin
