Chicken Taco Meat
2-3 frozen chicken breasts (I used 2 huge ones, just use common sense)
1 packet of taco seasoning
1-2 c. chunky salsa (however much you like)
1/2 c. water
Sprinkle the taco seasoning in the bottom of the crock pot. Top with the chicken breasts. Pour the salsa and water over the chicken breasts. Cook for 4 hours on low. Shred chicken with a fork.
|Before cooking. It took about three minutes to get it all together. |
Just turn on the crock pot and walk away. It takes care of itself!
|After a few hours on low. All I did was mash/shred the meat with a fork.|
8-10 flour tortillas
Chicken taco meat
Enchilada sauce (I use homemade frozen salsa verde, but red or green sauce from a can would work, too.)
Shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400. Spray bottom and sides of 9 x 13 pan with nonstick spray. Put some meat filling in each tortilla, amount depends on how big the tortillas are. Place enchiladas in pan, seam side down. Top with salsa verde or enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover with foil (I always spray with nonstick spray so it doesn't stick to the cheese) and bake for about 30 minues.
These are delicious fresh out of the oven, but also reheat well for lunch the next day. They can also be assembled in advance and refrigrated until you're ready to bake them. I like to serve them with chips and salsa and black beans on the side. Sometimes I put the beans inside the enchiladas, it just depends on my mood and memory.
I like a recipe that's flexible and this one definitely is. So take my recipe and make it yours. Enjoy!
