Pinterest Success!

Once school starts I always use my crockpot more. It’s so easy, and I absolutely love having dinner ready when I get home from work. I was hoping this pin would be another good crockpot recipe.

Guess what? It was. These taco bowls are easy peasy, especially since I made the rice in my rice cooker. There were plenty of leftovers for lunch this week, AND it is relatively inexpensive! Here’s the recipe:

Chicken Taco Bowls


  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts
  • 1 (16 oz) jar salsa
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained
  • 8 oz. frozen corn
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp. cumin
  • 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Cracked pepper to taste
  • 2 cups dry rice
  • 8 oz. shredded cheddar
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro (optional)


  1. Add everything but the rice, cheese and cilantro to the slow cooker. Give everything a good stir and make sure the chicken is covered in the mixture.
  2. Secure the lid on your slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
  3. Near the end of cooking time, cook the two cups of rice according to package instructions.
  4. After 8 hours of cooking, carefully remove the lid of the slow cooker. Stir with a fork to shred the chicken. Build the taco bowls by placing rice on the bottom, then the taco chicken mix, shredded cheese and fresh cilantro.

I LOVE a Pinterest success, don’t you? What have you tried from Pinterest lately?
