i'm learning to embrace more slow cooked meals so I can set it and forget it.
This is my first time putting ground meat in a slow cooker, and now I can't go back to cooking ground meat on the stove!
This way of cooking gave me some much needed TIME BACK!
This simple taco bowl was created because we ran out of tortillas, so the family was pumped to do TACO NIGHTS differently!
The flavorful meat complimented the whole grain rice so DANG NICELY, especially once you add in all the tasty taco toppings and mix it together. Delish!
Get ready to set it and forget it, so you can go on a walk, play with your kids or maybe even get some much needed alone time as the slow cooker does ALL THE WORK FOR YOU.
slow cooker ground chicken taco bowls
Optional Taco Toppings:
Avocado, Salsa, Plain Greek Yogurt and/or Cheddar Cheese, Fresh Cilantro
1. Cook rice/quinoa according to package directions.
2. In a medium size slow cooker place chicken, salsa and seasonings inside. Mix together gently.
3. Cover slow cooker lid, cook on high for 2- 2 1/2 hours or on low for 4- 4 1/2 hours.
4. Once chicken is cooked use a spatula to break the meat into smaller chunks. Then, add in your chopped peppers so they can warm up but still maintain their crunch!
To serve your taco bowl, place some cooked rice or quinoa in a bowl, add a big scoop of this delicious meat, a handful of chopped greens and your favorite taco toppings!
