This is genius, I don't know why I didn't think of it as it's so obvious. I just use 1 packet of seasoning (whatever comes in the Old El Pasa Taco box), 1 cup of stock, 2 chicken breasts, half a can of chopped tomatoes and a sprinkle of chilli and Vegeta. Cook for 8 hours then shred. Be prepared for the juice! So messy and so wonderful, thank you for the idea.

This was great! I did not drain the tomatoes or beans and used 4 frozen chicken breasts so I had quite a lot of liquid by the time this was done. I cooked up some rice and added that to absorb the liquid and served it as burritos with some chedder cheese and they were awesome! Also, instead of store-bought taco seasoning packets I doubled recipe 401334 which is my favorite taco seasoning recipe! Really good and super easy - thanks!
