Taco salad from a crockpot? Yes. Green chilies are my favorites and I was happy to find this recipe. If you stop after step 2, you have a delicious filling for tacos, too. Made with ground turkey, this is a somewhat lighter meat mixture, which is a happy circumstance! Just 3 steps makes this yummy meal. Recipe from BH&G.
