  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts I put these in frozen
  • 16 oz salsa
  • 2 cans black beans drained
  • 12 Flour Tortillas I like homemade tortillas
  • 1 Iceberg lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can olives
  • 1 cup shredded cheese


  • Place the chicken at the bottom of the crock pot. Pour the salsa and black beans over the top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  • 1/2 hour before serving, remove chicken onto cutting board and shred with 2 forks. Return chicken to crock pot and turn heat to high. Leave the lid off for remaining 1/2 hour to burn off excess liquid around chicken and beans. Depending on how much liquid your chicken distributes, you may even want to strain this a bit in a colander before serving. Sometimes it can be pretty runny and cause for a soggy taco!
  • Serve in your favorite tortillas or taco shells and top with your favorite taco toppings!



You can sub the jar of salsa for a packet of taco seasoning if you'd like. No extra water is needed- the chicken has enough juice to keep the meat moist. You can also use pinto beans or white beans if you prefer those instead of black
