Slow cooker tacos

What’s not to love about an easy recipe that’s healthy, delicious, and takes about 5 minutes of your time? Um, nothing. Especially when you have a three-month-old who desperately needs your attention! Plus now that it’s getting beautifully sunny and HOT outside, I don’t want to heat up the house with my cooking. Enter this chicken and veggie taco recipe, and problem solved! My favorite part is I can just toss it all in (I don’t even have to touch or chop the raw chicken!) and I can get on with my day.

Ingredients

2 chicken breasts
1 bell pepper
1 yellow squash or zucchini
1/2 onion
2 cloves garlic
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup water
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt (then add to taste once cooked)
Tortillas
Optional garnish: shredded cabbage, avocado and cheese

Directions

Dice onion, pepper, and squash. Put chicken, salsa, water and spices into the slow cooker. Add vegetables on top. Cook for 4-5 hours on high or 8 hours on low. About 30 minutes before serving shred the chicken using two forks so the juices soak in. Serve on tortillas (or save leftovers to put on salad).
