Easy Chicken Tacos - 3 Ingredients

Chicken Tacos - Eating On a Dime

This is the best recipe for a day that you just don't have the time to dedicate to a making a meal, like a Saturday. It's one that you simply have to throw your ingredients together, go off and enjoy your Saturday, and dinner will be ready when you're ready to eat.
I heard about this recipe from a colleague. You just need 3 ingredients and voila! It's a reliable recipe. I've made it a few times now and it's been great every time. My family love this recipe.

I usually start this one at about 11:00 am on a Saturday. First, I add about a tablespoon of olive oil in my slow-cooker. Then I threw in 6 chicken breasts. Then a small jar of salsa, usually President's Choice Extra Chunky Salsa and a package of taco seasoning (my go-to is Old El Paso). Then I put on the lid, start up the slow-cooker, usually setting it to cook for 4 hours, and I go about my business for the day. By about 3:00 pm, the meat for the tacos is ready. All I have to do is prep my toppings and dinner is served.

These tacos end up being a pretty fun meal, especially because everyone gets to make their own tacos how they like them. I usually put out some sour cream, salsa, grated old cheddar cheese, finely chopped cucumbers, chopped green and red peppers, chopped onions, and guacamole (home made).


3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of salsa (we used picante)
1 Tablespoons of Taco Seasoning (we used homemade)


  1. In a crockpot, place chicken breasts (frozen) in the bottom
  2. Sprinkle with the seasoning.
  3. Top with the salsa
  4. Cook on low for 6 hours, or high for 3 hours.
  5. Shred the chicken and serve with your favorite taco toppings

Enjoy and TTFN,

My Secret? Olay Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream

I've always looked pretty young for my age but soon after my 40th birthday, I noticed that my skin was changing. I was losing my glow. I was dealing with little random dry patches, a very oily T-zone and mini acne breakouts that I hadn't seen since my teens. I couldn't seem to link these new symptoms to a change in my diet or a new product I was using. Then it hit me, the change my skin was going through was very normal for women over 40.

A lot of women in their 40's experience dryness, an oilier T-zone, and a return of acne. These symptoms are usually the effect of hormonal changes related to premenopause and menopause. Stress and having a sweet tooth can help to bring on adult acne too. I've been using Olay's Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream for a while and it works for me. It gives my skin just the right amount of hydration and has reduced the acne breakouts to a minimum. It's exactly what my skin needs and has become a regular item in my stash of skin …
