Taco Tuesday is a staple in my household. I love just about any set of ingredients rolled up in a freshly made flour tortilla. You might be thinking, "Tacos every week? Doesn't that get boring?" At first, I admit, it did. I kept making the same fillings week after week, trying to make dinner quick and easy. Once I discovered the recipe below, I realized that my slow cooker could do most of the work for me, and creating a new taco each week became easy!
This four-ingredient shredded chicken recipe uses salsa and smoky paprika to season the chicken and keep it juicy as it cooks. The end result doesn't have to be for tacos: You could easily use this chicken to make a delicious BBQ sandwich, add extra broth and vegetables to create chicken noodle soup, or combine it with corn, black beans and a creamy cilantro dressing for a fun Southwestern-style chicken salad. The possibilities are endless!
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
