Who doesn’t like easy healthy meals. Sometimes the last thing I want to think about is what to make for dinner. Especially during these winter months, it can be hard to find the time and motivation to make a good meal. This is why I love the crock pot, a nice one stop shop!
One of my favorites is Chicken Tacos!
4 chicken Breasts
1 bag of frozen corn
1 can Black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can Tomatoes with juice
For Taco seasoning mix together:
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
(Quadruple the recipe to have on hand for future recipes!) Add 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes for spice if needed.
Place all ingredients in crock pot on High for 4 hours. When Chicken is fully cooked use forks to shred the chicken while in the crock pot and mix ingredients together.
Place on whole wheat tortilla with other fixings if desired and enjoy. One of my favorite substitutions is using plain Greek yogurt for sour cream, more nutrients and less unwanted calories. The chicken mixture is also great on your favorite greens (Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, Kale, etc.) for a lighter option.
