Sharing Some Easy Yum Yum

I recently discovered a lovely little book called "Fix it and Forget It Lightly" - a collection of crock pot wonders ...how can you not love that? Below is the first recipe I've tried, even though I've marked many to experiment with. Must say it was so easy and so yummy that I'm already planning to repeat it!

Chicken Soft Tacos

1-1 1/2 lbs. frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts
14 1/2 oz. can low-sodium diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 envelope taco seasoning (low sodium if possible)

1. Place chicken breasts in slow cooker.
2. Mix tomatoes and taco seasoning. Pour over chicken.
3. Cover. Cook on low 6-8 hours.
4. Serve in soft tortillas. Top with salsa, low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, guacamole if your diet allows, and fresh tomatoes.

Makes 6 Servings. Per serving 100 calories (20 from fat).

We did opt for crunchy shells -it's a personal choice. We used some low fat sour cream and low fat cheese to top. Enjoy!

oooh those sound delicious.. my kids love when i make homemade taco salads I use black beans and refried beans low fat cheese, low fat sour cream, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, hamburger or chicken with low sodium taco seasoning. For the taco shell strips simply take tortillas ( flour) cut in strips or tear in bits and deep fry for like 60 seconds and let drain well.. aside fromt eh deep frying it is a really great meal my kids will eat and love..
