This is how I made it:

I am using this to make chicken tacos.

Ingredients:

2lbs chicken breast with fat trimmed off

Juice from 2 limes plus a little extra lime juice from a bottle. (Just depends on how much you want)

1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

1 (16 oz) bag frozen corn

2 minced garlic cloves

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 tsp cumin

salt and pepper to taste

Gallon freezer bag

(I did not add this in my recipe because my husband or kids do not like onions but you may  add 1/2 red onion, chopped to the recipe if your family does like onion.)

Directions:

First label your freezer bag with meal name, date prepared, and cooking instructions.

Put the chicken breast in the bottom of the bag then add corn and beans.

Add the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl and mix. Then add to the bag with the chicken, corn, and beans.

The day before you want to eat the recipe place it in the fridge to thaw for 24 hours.

Cook on LOW for 8 hours (or HIGH for 4 hours).

Making the tacos:

What you will need:

tortillas of any kind

rice

lettuce

tomato

any other toppings you want for tacos

  • Once the chicken is done cooking in the crockpot, shred your chicken and leave in the crockpot. 
  • Cook your rice. I like fresh rice and it’s not the difficult to make so if I use rice with any recipe I make it the day of.
  • Warm up tortillas
  • Put the tacos together!
