Lime Chili Tacos

As requested, here is the recipe for the Lime Chili Tacos. I'm going to be posting some more recipes in the days/weeks that come. I am on a quest to find meals that are quick to get on the table. For me, that means anything that I can do all the prep work for while Antalya is at preschool in the morning. This recipe is compliments of my friend Emily Lillywhite.

Place in crock pot. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or until tender.
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1 T chili powder
Remove chicken and shred. Place back in crock pot and add:
  • 1 c frozen corn (or a can of corn)
  • 1 c salsa
  • 1 can black beans
Cook for another 30 minutes (or until all hot).

Serve with avocados, sour cream, lettuce, cheese, and whatever else you like on tacos.

This turned out great. Although I should add that because it was such a wet mixture it turned my crunchy taco shell into a mushy one pretty quick. For that reason I think it would be great as a base for a taco salad.
