Recipe Box, Peachy Chicken Chalupas for National Eat a Peach Day

 

Happy “National Eat a Peach Day”

This recipe is one of my favorites from the archives, and perfect for busy back to school days

A great thing about using a slow cooker is that you donโ€™t have to defrost the meat  ๐Ÿ˜…

I put 3 frozen boneless breasts in a sprayed slow cooker and sprinkled them liberally with taco seasoning.  Then poured in a jar of peach salsa and a dash of orange juice.  Forget the tomato, thatโ€™s for later   ๐Ÿ˜‰

After 4 hours it looked like this

Low heat, 7-8 hours and dinnerโ€™s ready!

It shreds in seconds, itโ€™s so tender

I used small flour tortillas and gave them a quick fry in a scant amount of olive oil

This is a great family meal, Big E loves tomatoes and lettuce, but his brother just wants chicken and cheese.  No problem, have it any way you like~

You can also spread the tortilla with a layer of warm refried beans before filling and add avocado or guacamole

    Hi, Jenna. This looks delicious. I’ve never heard of peach salsa. Is it easy to find? Would love to try this.

    • Thanks Rosie, peach salsa is widely available, just look in your local grocery, there are usually several flavors in each brand, peach, pineapple, mango etc. If you can’t find peach you can use any salsa, it will still be great
