Mexican Flavored Chicken Creations

Mexican-Flavored Chicken
Makes 8 Servings

2 pounds of chicken
1 can hot rotel
1 packet taco seasoning
1 jalepeno, deseeded and finely diced

Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and cook for three hours on high. Remove chicken to a plate, shred with two forks, add back to slowcooker, stir, and cook for 30 more minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove, and divide into 4 tubs (each tub has TWO servings).

The idea was that the chicken would be ready to go for multiple recipes! Here’s what we did with it!

2 servings - Tostados (with refried beans and avocado)

My serving with a side of greens!

Austin's with an extra tostado!

2 servings - Mexican Wraps (big tortilla stuffed with chicken, beans, lettuce and avocado)

Sorry for the work pic - VERY good regardless of gross pic! LOL

1 serving - Taco Salad (big bed of lettuce covered with chicken, avocado and cilantro salad dressing)

Yum... loved those avocado chunks

3 servings - Chicken enchilada bake (bake at 450; line square glass pan with 3 corn tortillas, add chicken, add ½ can enchilada sauce; add 3 corn tortillas; add can of spicy beans; add 2 corn tortillas; add remainder of enchilada sauce and top with cheese)

Kinda gross pic again! haha Taken with my iPhone at work today in the plastic container - the picture didn't stand a chance! LOL

YUM! This made it SO easy!
