Reviews for Soft Chicken Tacos
"Just like eating at a restaurant! I didn't use the black beans. I cooked the chicken in the crockpot with the salsa, taco seasoning and also added some butter, chicken broth, franks hot wing sauce and some diced onion. I let it cook until the chicken soaked up all the liquid then shredded with a fork. Absolutely Delicious! Best home made tacos I've ever had. I have no need to go to a Mexican restaurant when I can make these at home!"
"Very flavorful and delicious! Simple meal, big taste! We served it with Spanish rice and a salad!"
"I'd give it 7 stars if I could! WONDERFUL meal and quick to make!"
"I had some leftover cooked chicken on hand and was looking for an easy way to use it. This was perfect! These tasted very good, and were so simple to make. I just heated up the chicken and bean mixture in the microwave. Topped the taco with lettuce, diced tomato, and cheddar cheese. Next time I may make the Southwestern Hominy side dish to accompany this."
"I haven't used this recipe yet. I am preparing it this evening for my family. I am reducing the salt in 3 ways. Rinsing the beans thoroughly cuts the salt in those by about 1/3. I make my own taco seasoning using a low sodium Chili Powder. I also make my own salsa which is much more time consuming so I make a large amount and freeze it. There are numerous recipes for both of those items here on Taste of Home."
"Incredibly easy, I also add 1/2 cup corn. I can't believe how much flavor these have, it seems to simple but is soo delicious!"
"This recipe is good - but the sodium content is prohibitive! Where can I cut the salt?"
