Once you’re ready to get cooking, grab the slow cooker and dump the bag in along with a rinsed can of black beans and corn, then a can of rotel.

Cook for 6-8 hours on low. Then, with 15 minutes left, pull the chicken and get the toppings ready.

Heat up your taco shells and taco it up!

Oh, and in case you didn’t know, no need to heat up the shells for 20 minutes in the oven. Nope. Take a full sheet of paper towels and soak it with water, then squeeze out any excess water (you want it damp, but not dripping). Then wrap up to 4 shells in it, and fold so the shells are all covered. Microwave the wrapped shells for 35-50 seconds depending on the power of your wave-zapper.

Don’t these just look so good? Little tip – we don’t usually have sour cream in the house; actually, I think it’s been years since we’ve had it. What we use, and what we usually have in the house, is greek yogurt – you should try it! It’s so good. Of course, we use natural. No way tacos would be good with vanilla greek yogurt. Yuck.
