crock pot tex mex chicken lettuce wraps
The time change has really made it difficult to take my own pictures of my food, so we will be seeing lots of borrowed images for a bit I think. The top picture and the recipe come from the site Eat, Live, Run which I just recently found out about. The chicken could be used for so much more than just these lettuce wraps. The kids ate them in tortillas and it would be great in soup, enchiladas, quesadillas, taquitos, you get the idea. You can't go wrong with crock pot meals...the easiest way to go!


Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 1/2 tbsp taco seasoning
1 jalapeno, seeded and sliced
1 16 oz jar of salsa
1 yellow onion, diced
salt, as needed (I used 1 tsp)
iceberg lettuce leaves for wrapping

Directions:
Sprinkle seasoning all over chicken breasts, then place breasts at the bottom of the slow cooker.
Scatter onion and jalapeno over chicken breasts. Pour salsa over top. Place lid on slow cooker and cook on LOW for 4-5 hours.
After 4-5 hours, remove chicken breasts from slow cooker and chop up. Place chopped chicken back in slow cooker and stir to combine. Season with salt to taste.
To serve lettuce wraps, spread one lettuce leaf out and scoop about 1/4th cup chicken mixture on top. Roll up lettuce leaf and enjoy!
