Hey All!

Growing up, it was traditional for my mom to create fun and original recipes from ingredients we already had in the kitchen. This was especially the case around back-to-school time. I had homework I needed help with, so she couldn’t spend a lot of time cooking in the kitchen. She liked making recipes that were convenient and allowed her freedom to do other things, as opposed to staying in the kitchen cooking. She would use her Crock-Pot® slow cooker to create these recipes and it was always inspiring for me to see what she would come up with. We weren’t the richest family when I was growing up, but we always had food on the table that tasted amazing. She was all about being creative in the most inconvenient of times and she inspired me to be the same way today.

With Fall and back-to-school time being some of the busiest times of year for me with work for this site, I love having my own NEW Crock-Pot® Single Hand Cook & Carry® 6-Quart Oval Slow Cooker to cook week night meals in. I can come up with some fun twists on recipes we usually eat and cook it all inside my Crock-Pot® slow cooker. It cuts down on the mess I have to clean up and it also allows me to cook with out having to have to stand over a hot stove top. I can go get work done or spend time with my family while our meals cook. In only a few hours, my home is filled with the same amazing smells I remember from my childhood, which my family now gets to enjoy too! Since we have “Taco Tuesday” every week, I decided to put a twist on our tacos. I didn’t have time to get to the grocery store, so I had to use ingredients I already had in the kitchen. I came up with these yummy Crock-Pot® slow cooker Chicken & Black Bean Tacos!

To make these you’ll need:



  • NEW Crock-Pot® Single Hand Cook & Carry® 6-Quart Oval Slow Cooker
  • 2-3 Chicken Breasts (Cut down into cube shapes)
  • 1 Jar of Mild Salsa
  • 1 Can of Black Beans
  • 1 Can of Corn
  • Soft Tacos
  • Shredded Mexican Style Cheese
  • Lime for flavor


To make these tasty tacos you’ll first cut the chicken breasts into cube shapes. You’ll then turn on your Crock-Pot® slow cooker, so it heats up and is ready to start cooking.


You place your cubed chicken into the Crock-Pot® slow cooker first. You follow that with your full can of corn, full jar of salsa, and can of black beans.


You’ll set your Crock-Pot® slow cooker to cook for 2 hours and let it work it’s cooking magic, as you go off and do something else you need to do.


The lid will steam up as it cooks. This Crock-Pot® slow cooker has automated smart cook settings, precision heat technology and multi-method cooking options. I also love that it has handles, which means you can cook something up and take it with you. It’s perfect for a potluck dinner! I digress…


Once everything is cooked, you take out two scoops of the recipe and put it on your soft sell tacos.


You sprinkle some shredded cheese on the tacos, squeeze a little lime on them and serve. The lime is optional.


It’s the most tasty and flavorful taco recipe I’ve come up with to date using random ingredients in our kitchen. It’s not too spicy and has the right amount of zesty taste with every bite. You can make enough tacos for a family of 4 with this recipe. You can adjust the amount of ingredients depending on your family size and by how much your family eats.


They are fun to make and taste fantastic! They are the perfect addition to our taco night recipes.


They were a huge hit yesterday and I’m sure they will be a huge hit with your own family as well.


Turn your own “Taco Tuesday” into something special and unique with your own Crock-Pot® slow cooker!
