This recipe has become a household staple, and in the course of preparing it, I discovered Crock Pot Liners. I've now found that I can take two crock pot liners, and in one liner bag I can make this taco recipe, and in the other bag I can make Easy and Tasty BBQ Chicken in the Crock Pot(Recipe 95569) and cook them in the same large crock pot. If cooked on high, it only takes me about 4 to 5 hours, and I stop to switch the bags around half way through the cooking so the chicken breasts cook evenly. Within 5 hours I have two delicious and easy meals, great for entertaining..or for days when I'm just too lazy to cook!
I did exactly what was said to do, and it was FABULOUS!!! What I did with it was...make it into a Mexican lasagna. Instead of using noodles I used tortillas and Mexican cheese, and just layered it as if I was making a regular lasagna. Will for sure make again. Oh...and it was simple to put together. Which makes for an even better review. Thank you for sharing.
I make this about every other week. I use 2 lbs chicken and 2 cups water with 1.5-2 cubes Knorr Caldo de Pollo (chicken boullion). Instead of taco seasoning, we use Goya Sazon seasoning, con culantro y achiote (2 packets). The meat is tasty and tender and not too spicy for my 4 year old. Thanks for sharing!
