Yay. (That’s a sort of sarcastic yay, if you couldn’t tell by the period at the end. 😉 )

While I love baseball, I hate all the practices and parent meetings, etc. I have two boys playing and they both have practices at different parks on different days. So on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, I’m taking and picking up someone to and from practice somewhere. Oh and then there’s piano, homework and boys scouts on top of that! Sigh.

Okay, I’m done ranting! I am excited for them to play, though. It’s always fun to watch and see them grow. My mom always tells me to enjoy my kids now because soon they’ll be grown up and gone, so I’m trying to enjoy the busy times even though I crave the quiet. 😉

This meal is about the easiest I’ve ever made. Five ingredients, all thrown into the crock pot. Shred the chicken and scoop out some corn and beans and put either on rice or on tortillas like my husband loves. When I make this, my boys eat the entire thing. There are never any leftovers. We love it!Easy Crock Pot Chicken Taco Bowls - healthy, filling, flavorful and have only 5 ingredients!

    This looks awesome Jen! Love crock pot meals especially during the winter months and busy week nights – this one sounds wonderful with only five ingredients too :)

    I am planning to make this for a potluck dinner next week! I think I will also have some 2% cheese and sour cream and cilantro for garnish!

    I”m a newbie chef and am about to make this recipe for a birthday gathering this afternoon. Curious if I am supposed to drain the beans and canned corn. I’m assuming negative since the ingredients need some “juice” to cook in. Keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn’t come out soggy :-/ I’ll update later!

      Hi Renee! I hope it turned out well for you! You need to drain and rinse the beans and drain the corn, just like it says on the recipe. I hope you and your guests enjoyed it!

    What size crockpot do u recommend? We don’t need quite as much meat…will recipe work with say 3 chicken breasts? Thanks!

      Hi Kim! I use a Hamilton Beach 6 quart Set & Forget crock pot. It’s amazing. This recipe will definitely work with just 3 chicken breasts. Just don’t add in as much of the other ingredients and it might not take as long to cook. I hope you like it! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Hi Jenn, do you cook on high or low for 4 hours? It seems super easy and tasty so I’m using it as my first crockpot meal!
