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 don’t have to defrost the meat  😅


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, that’s for later   😉

After 4 hours it looked like this


Low heat, 7-8 hours and dinner’s ready!


It shreds in seconds, it’s so tender


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

Then top with chicken, cheese, onions, avocado  tomatoes anything you like!

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

The real star of this easy peasy family meal is the chicken~ simmered in a slow cooker with salsa and taco seasoning, it is tender, full of flavor, and ready to shine in tacos, salad, sandwiches, anything you want!

    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
