Crockpot Chicken Tacos

I found this recipe on Pinterest from the blog Chocolate Therapy and had to try it. I did not have a package of taco seasoning that it called for so I made my own, which was actually very simple. The tacos turned out amazing! Here is the original recipe below along with the recipe for making your own taco seasoning:

Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Recipe from Tasty Kitchen

1 envelope Taco Seasoning
6 pieces Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 jar Salsa (16 oz)

Dump everything into a crock pot and give it a little stir to blend the seasoning with the salsa. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the chicken should shred easily when stirred with a fork.

For tacos, serve the chicken with soft flour tortillas, lettuce, shredded cheese and sour cream. This is very versatile and can be used for enchiladas, nachos, tostadas, etc. Any leftover chicken can then be used for tortilla soup (make it the next day or freeze the chicken to use at a later time).

Taco Seasoning Recipe:
1 Tablespoon minced dried onions
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Stir all seasonings into a bowl. Makes the equivalent of a 1 1/4-ounce packet of taco seasoning.
