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,

Parkas for 2015 Winter in Toronto

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.

Check post, updated in 2018, on where I've find warm winter coats or parkas in Toronto.

Here are some places where I think you may get lucky...

From Curly to Straight in Less Than 1 Hour

My hair has grown a lot since I stopped relaxing. The transition took a long time, about two years, so I'm not about to damage it again. Wearing my hair natural has helped my hair to gain strength and thickness. But sometimes I just want to wear it straight and that means being careful not to damage it.

You've been sending me question about blowouts and how I go from curly to straight without doing severe damage. When it comes to hair growth, I have two key pieces of advice for you. Make sure to give your natural hair moisture and go the extra mile to protect it from heat. That's how I achieved the results in the before and after growth pic below.

These results are all me. I haven't been to a hairstylist in a very long time. Not because I can't find a good one, there are many talented stylists in Toronto. I just prefer to do my hair myself myself. Actually, anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE♥ doing my own hair. It comes out exactly how I want it to.


Von Doughnuts on Danforth

The doughnut in this pic is not just any doughnut, it's a Caramel Salt N' Pepa doughnut from Von Doughnuts. It is absolutely delish! I discovered Von one evening strolling along the Danforth with my family after dinner. As soon as we saw the big orange sign and my daughter's favorite word "Doughnuts", we had to check it out.

I'm hooked now but not just because of the doughnuts. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. It's just chill. The people who work there make it even better. My favorite is Nora, we bonded over doughnuts. Well, actually, she's the only Von employee I have met.  As you can see in the pick below, by the time we left, Nora was blowing good-bye kisses. We love her and we'll be back.

We dropped in a little too close to closing time so we only had the Caramel Salt N' Pepa and a few lightly sugared doughnut holes to choose from. But Miss Nora made sure we knew what doughnuts to come back for by reading off the list of flavors …
