SLOW COOKER BBQ CHICKEN TACOS

What happens on those days when you don’t have time to cook or you just don’t feel like going to a lot of trouble?  I know sometimes at our house and maybe at yours too we will get takeout or even go out to eat, but there are also those days where that’s really not what you want either.  Why consume all those calories or why spend all that money?  If you’re like me you probably have a couple of go-to recipes that you will use on the days just like that.  Something your family will eat, something you have the ingredients for and something that’s pretty simple.  If I were into betting, I place my money on the fact that many of you have taco night at your house at least occasionally for this very reason.  But since I can almost hear the disappointment of my family at yet another boring taco night, I decided to think outside the box to find something just as easy but with a totally new spin, and in the end we all agreed, Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Tacos are a hit!

    Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8
    Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred using 2 forks
    Add a ladle or two of the cooking juices and discard remaining (you want it to be juicy but not swimming)

    Add thawed corn to large bowl
    Add remaining ingredients and toss until combined, adding salt and pepper to taste
