The Slow-Cooker Dinner for Taco Night (or Any Night)
Here's one more reason our Crock-Pot has earned the title of kitchen MVP. The low and slow heat works wonders on two supermarket stalwarts: chicken and jarred salsa. Lay three or four breasts in your slow cooker, pour a jar of your favorite chunky salsa (about two cups' worth) on top, put the lid on and set the appliance to high. After about four hours, the chicken will be so tender, you can shred it with two forks. Then, eat it on its own, pile it into tortillas or taco shells or serve it over greens.
