Shredded Chicken Tacos

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1-16oz jar Pace Picante sauce
tortillas, taco toppings of choice

Put chicken in crockpot, cover with picante sauce and cook on low 8hrs. Shred with fork, cook 10 minutes more. Serve on tortillas with any toppings you enjoy! My family LOVES these and they are great for superbowl! I make a much larger batch and enjoy the leftovers when we have them!

LOVE LOVE LOVE their website: http://www.crock-pot.com/Recipes.aspx

The pulled pork is one of my family and friend's favorites. Everyone asks me, how did you make this so juicy! (The think I slow cooked it over the BBQ!) And we use Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and serve it with some cole slaw. YUM!

I like pulled beef or pork with sweet BBQ sauce.

Place a 2 lb. chuck roast and a quartered onion in the crockpot.
Don't add any liquid.
Cook on low 7-8 hours.
Drain liquid created from the roast. Discard.
Shred beef with 2 large forks.
Mix half bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's (or other) with 1/2 c. apricot preserves.
Pour sauce into meat.
Mix.
Warm for 15 additional minutes.
Serve on buns.

Sometimes I throw frozen meatballs and spagetti sauce in the crockpot for meatball sandwiches. Also, you can use the meatballs with mushrooms and brown gravy. We serve them over egg noodles.

Take Denise P's two lbs of meat and divvy it up for a few nights before you add her sauce. One night, do her BBQsauce. The other night, put the cooked meat in a pan with salsa and make tacos. Another night, add wax peppers or bell pepper or any other variation and put it on fresh sourdough bread. Two lbs of meat can make a lot of meals!

I love to make round steak in my crock pot. get a round steak I like the thicker one not the super thing ones. I cut it into pieces and then flour it. spray the bottom of the crock pot with some pam or even better get some of those crock pot bags. lay the round steak in the crock pot. Sprinkle a package of lipton onion soup mix in. pour in about a half cup of water. cover tightly and let it go. it will be really good after work. sometimes I put a can of mushroom soup mix in that makes amazing gravy. cook on low for about 8 to 10 hours.
