So, I frequent a mommy message board to ask questions, read people's advice, etc. Although there are often NBR (non-baby-related) conversations going on, I'm generally there for baby stuff and ignore all the extraneous. But these tacos could not be ignored. At least once a day, there's a post about "KA's Tacos" and how damn good they are. I finally broke down and bought a crockpot because I just had to see what the fuss was all about. They deserve all the hype. So delicious, I had to run to my lonely blog and share with the world (or with the 2 people who read my blog :-))! We had it in crispy taco shells, which is unlike us, but it was soooo good. I'm sure it's great in tortillas as well. Enjoy!

p.s. picture below is NOT our tacos as I would never ever allow a black olive to touch my plate or that of those I care about.

KA's Chicken Tacos in the Crockpot
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 (I use H.E.B.'s hot variety, we like the 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.

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.

I made crockpot chicken yesterday as well. I think crockpots are the secret to the working mom's/non-mom's success.
