    Recipe Introduction

    Add your Mexican ingredients to a crockpot for an easy dinner.

    List of Ingredients

    8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    3 pounds sirloin, stew beef, or whatever is lean
    and on sale
    1 package taco seasoning mix
    water to cover
    cheddar cheese -- shredded
    sour cream
    refried beans
    sliced black olives
    sliced green onions
    chopped fresh tomatoes
    shredded lettuce
    sliced jalapenos
    tortillas, corn or flour


    Leave meat in whole pieces; you may even put it in frozen.
    In the morning, put the meat into the crockpot, add taco seasoning mix, and
    water. Plug it in and turn it on simmer according to manufacturer's
    If you have time in the morning, shred the cheese and lettuce and chop the
    tomatoes and store in ziplock or Rubbermaid containers in the refrigerator.

    When meat is cooked, remove with slotted spoon to a platter and allow to
    cool enough to handle. Place chicken breasts or beef on cutting board, and
    using a fork, shred the meat, while discarding any pieces of fat, etc, that
    you find. Return shredded meat to crockpot. Warm refried beans in small
    sauce pan or microwave. Wrap tortillas in foil and warm in the oven. Put
    remaining ingredients out in dishes on table (or counter) and holler
    "DINNER!!!" very loudly. The diners can put together their own soft tacos
    or burritos with the ingredients they like best.

    NOTES : You probably won't see this done on a fancy cooking show, but this
    is a really easy dinner to make that my family really enjoys, and there are
    always leftovers for easy after-school grazing the next day, or even
    another meal.
