Taco Tuesday is a day of the week that we take very seriously here in the One Sweet Appetite home. My seven year old, who actually strongly dislikes classic tacos, makes it a point to remind me every morning that Taco Tuesday is the day we eat tacos. Period. No exceptions. In an effort to help him understand how deep my love runs I’ve created a few different twists on the classic recipe to help him enjoy the meal a little more. This Chicken Taco Salad ranks high on our list of favorites. Why? Mostly because it’s a slow cooker meal (yay for easy prep) and is packed with flavor.
- 1 lb chicken breast
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- pinch of garlic powder
- 1-1/2 cups salsa
- ranch dressing
- Combine the chicken, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and salsa in a slow cooker. Cook on low heat for 4 hours. Shred and set aside.
- Chop the lettuce. Top with chicken, tomatoes, olives, avocado and any other topping you might enjoy.
- Serve with ranch dressing or cilantro lime ranch.
