Chicken Taco Crock-Pot Recipe

A slow cooker is an affordable, efficient household tool that allows us to prepare meals for our family while tending to other tasks. Slow cookers help tenderize meat/poultry, and brings out the flavor in foods.  A wide variety of foods can be cooked in a slow cooker, including one pot meals, soups, stews and casseroles. 

One of my favorite things to make is Jen’s easy Chicken Taco Crock-Pot Recipe. It’s bursting with flavor, full of yumminess, and it is really easy to make; it only takes a few minutes to prepare.
