A simple recipe for shredded chicken for tacos

Looking for a quick and easy recipe for a meal? Look no further. As many people already know, crock pot recipes are great for weekdays or weekends because the recipes do not require much attention, if any, from the cook. This is just one of the many ways to use the fajita spice blend which follows the recipe. Serve as the meat on a taco salad or on a corn or flour tortilla. Choose your favorite garnishes such as salsa, pico de gallo, avocado, guacamole, lettuce, cheese, and sour cream. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and friends do!
