Going easy on the heat today! Homemade bean and cheese burritos with berries from the garden on the side.

spaghetti & homemade meat balls and garlic bread. I make meatballs ahead of time and keep them in the freezer. Easy!

It was taco Tuesday here. I make a crockpot full of salsa chicken, then freeze it so it's ready to go for a quick meal.

And we have tacos almost every Tuesday since it's scouts/youth activity night and it's a quick, easy meal to get on the table so everyone can eat before they leave. Plus, the kids are able to help cook the tortillas and grate the cheese.

It's really easy. I just put 5 or 6 of the large boneless, skinless chicken breasts in my crockpot and cover them with 24 to 32 oz of salsa (I use Pace picante), then you cook it on low for about 6 hours. Remove the chicken, shred it with a fork, and add it back to the crockpot with the salsa and juices. I usually leave the lid off for a bit, maybe 30 minutes to decrease the liquid. You could add some taco seasoning if you like more spices, but we prefer mild. I've also seen it where some add black beans to it. You could use any kind of chicken and salsa, whatever you prefer. Sometimes I add more salsa after I've shredded the meat if it isn't flavorful enough.
