3-Ingredient Crock-Pot Chicken Tacos

I thought these sounded quick, easy, and tasty.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (1.25-ounce) packet low-sodium taco seasoning (see note)
1 (16-ounce) jar of your favorite salsa

Ideas for serving: tortillas or taco shells and your choice of optional toppings, such as shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese, black beans, corn, chopped avocados or guacamole, reduced-fat sour cream, and hot sauce.

Instructions:
Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over chicken. Pour salsa on top. Cook on low (for 6-8 hours) or high (for 4 hours). Just before serving, use two forks to shred the chicken. Stir to evenly distribute salsa throughout chicken. Serve immediately with optional toppings as desired.

Notes:
Taco seasoning: We recommend avoiding taco seasoning mixes that contain MSG. Also, there are differences in the amounts of sodium (and other ingredients) in various brands, so it's a good idea to read the nutrition information for the brands offered at your store.

Such a great recipe!

Oh, and if you are out of taco seasoning, it can be made with ONLY chicken and salsa! Won't be as stellar, but still wonderful and good.
