This recipe is a personal favorite of mine. If I was having the worst day imaginable and you wanted to cheer me up, Mexican food would be the way to bring a smile to my face! This is such a cinch to make, and it cooks in the crock pot so you save cooking time. One bite and you'll never go back to ground beef. ;)

How to Make Lime Chicken Tacos

Step-by-Step

  1. Place chicken breasts in bottom of crock pot. Mix lime juice and chili powder together; pour over chicken breasts. Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours, or until chicken shreds easily with a fork. Be sure your lid is on securly to retain moisture.
  2. Remove breasts from crock pot and shred with two forks. Skim any fat or loose particles from the juices in the crock pot. Return chicken to pot. Add corn and salsa, blend. Cook on low 30 minutes longer or until heated through.
  3. Place mixture in taco shells using a slotted spoon if there is excess liquid, and add your favorite toppings.
  4. Tip: I like to bake my hard shells for about 4 minutes in a 350 oven for crispness. I heat my flour tortillas on a plate covered with a thick, damp paper towel to keep them moist.
