Why it works:
- Cheese makes kid-friendly recipes even better! How can your kids possibly resist a warm and cheesy chicken taco?
- Crock-Pot is love! How easy is it to put all your ingredients in and to let it
work its magic?
- While letting it cook for 4 hours, you can
prepare other dishes to pair with it. This is perfect for parents who need to get a lot of things done.
- Chicken tenders, cream cheese and ranch seasoning are ingredients you might already have at home! They’re also easy to stock up on and can be found in your local grocery stores.
- Want some more kick in your tacos? Add some salsa or chopped bell peppers – or even jalapenos – in for a bit more spice and color.
- Spread it on some bread for packed lunches at school or work.
You can make them the day before and reheat them for the next day.
- Are you entertaining guests soon? Use it as a dip to go with your favorite tortilla and potato chips.
- Try adding some shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese to the tacos if you’re feeling extra generous. Kids will surely LOVE it!
- Add in some shredded purple cabbage for more color and crunch. You can even serve it in purple cabbage cups for some extra fun!
- If you have some bacon in the kitchen, cook it separately and add the bacon bits as extra garnish to your tacos. Everything is awesome with bacon!
- Once the chicken is done cooking in the Crock-Pot, you can make it extra special by baking it with a layer of cheese on top. Mm-mmm!
- Want to eat healthier? You can use lettuce to wrap the cheesy chicken in! This is great for picnics and parties.
- When the Crock-Pot is done cooking the chicken tenders and cheese, make sure you shred them well for it to have the same consistency.
- If you don’t have a kitchen tool for it, you can use two forks to claw at the meat until you’ve attained the right consistency.
