Crock-Pot Shredded Chicken Taco. This is a simple but tasty recipe for shredded chicken taco meat.

Having two kids that are always on the go for some sort of activity or school event, it is nice to have items that are in the fridge that they can heat up. I like to keep a couple choices so they can have something good and something that they like to eat.

This will keep in the fridge for 5-7 days or up to 2 months in the freezer. I like to make this in bulk, and then freeze it is quart size bags. I can take a bag out of the freezer and allow it to thaw in the fridge. A quick reheat and we can have nachos or tacos or even burritos.

The recipe can be doubled or even tripled and frozen for later use. I like using this for tacos, burritos or even nachos.
