Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Tacos

Rating: 4.5 stars 104
Tacos always keep the family running home for dinner. Here's a new take on classic pulled chicken tacos made with chicken thighs, a hint of sweet orange, tangy lime, and savory soy sauce. There's minimal chopping and prep work, so you can get out of the kitchen fast. Use a slow cooker liner in this recipe to make clean-up even easier. Top each taco with diced red onion, chopped cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

"Pantry Raid" Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 504
I made this recipe up one night when I had no idea what to do with a pound and a half of chicken tenderloins. It came out so well that my husband and I finished off the leftovers the next day and we are not usually leftover eaters. I am gluten-free so I used gluten-free cornbread mix. You will definitely enjoy it!

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 870
Looks like a pie, cuts like a pie, and tastes like a little bit of Southwestern heaven. This casserole is made from pinto and black beans layered with tortillas and cheese. Picante sauce gives it just the right kick. You can replace the Cheddar cheese with Monterey Jack if you like.

Chili Potato Burritos

Rating: 4 stars 220
You can use any kind of chili pepper you like - I like poblano or chipotle the best. Buy them dried and put them in your blender to make powder! Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream if desired. You can substitute taco sauce for enchilada sauce.
