The Superbowl is quickly approaching and I get so darn excited for that day each year. Do I have a clue who is playing in it? Nope. One of those Manning boys, that much I know. Do I know anything about the halftime entertainment? Not so much. Am I excited for the commercials? Ill pass. As you may assume…I don’t really watch one bit of this game. I just like the food that goes along with it. So if you are a die-hard and want to sit and watch the game without some obnoxious girl trying to shove food into your mouth and talk about things that have absolutely no relevance to football…Im probably not the girl you’d like to invite over 😉 Which, no offense, is totally fine with me. I’d much rather be in my own home for the Superbowl…in the kitchen making bar-type grub and snacking and lounging. These tacos are perfect for a crowd big or small. Just throw everything in the slow cooker and let it cook all day. Once it is done its so fun to set up a “Taco Bowl Bar” where everyone can build their own. Fan-pleasing fare, without a doubt.
Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Bowls
Notes: Click here for my homemade Taco Seasoning recipe. Its not only cheaper than store bought..its much more healthful and tasty. Also, Trader Joes frozen roasted corn is awesome in this dish-I like to sauté it in a little olive oil until just cooked through.
For the chicken:
1 Pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 Can Pinto Beans, drained
1 Cup Chicken Stock
3 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning (find my homemade recipe for Taco Seasoning here)
2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
For the bowls:
Cooked Brown Rice
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Place the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Whisk the chicken stock, taco seasoning and tomato paste together until combined and pour over the chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours and add the pinto beans halfway through the cooking. Shred the chicken and build your taco bowls. Serves 6-8
To build the Taco Bowls: Place a small amount of rice on the bottom of your bowl. Top with chicken and beans, leafy greens, corn, cheese, guacamole and salsa.
