Two Ingredient Taco Tuesday

Shredded Chicken Tortilla

I have always loved tacos, but growing up it rarely made it onto our regular menu. Later after Gaar and I got married we relied on this quick and economical meal as a weekly staple. Over the years as I have become more concerned about creating healthy meals I have traded the traditional beef taco recipe for healthy chicken. While I still make tacos with ground beef this two ingredient chicken recipe is a tasty alternative. And yes, I did say two ingredients.

I am very loyal to the products I like, but I have never found one that has really changed some of my favorite recipes including spaghetti, chili and these tacos. That product is the salsa  called Salsa Rose made locally in Mascoutah, Illinois. I found it by chance after moving here a few months ago and I am totally addicted!

As for the tacos, all you need to do is combine your favorite salsa with 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a 5 quart slow cooker and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Shred with two forks when done and top with your favorite taco toppings. I enjoy this seasoned chicken over lettuce for a delicious taco salad. It is also great served on buns, flatbreads or quesadillas.
