Works for Me Wednesday - Five-Ingredients-or-Less Edition

It's summer and cooking should be simpler. Who wants to be slaving over a stove when you could be enjoying a lovely late afternoon at the beach or in a park? This week Works-For-Me Wednesday is all about simple (5 ingredients or less) recipes.

Here's mine...
Crockpot Shredded Chicken for Tacos

3 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 T. chopped garlic
1 wedged onion
2 T. chili powder
2 T. cumin

Put all ingredients in a crockpot. Cook on 4 hours HIGH or 6 hours LOW or until chicken is cooked through.
Cool chicken and shred.

Reheat chicken for tacos. Set out "salad bar" style toppings for make your own tacos - shredded cabbage, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, avocado, guacamole, chopped onions, chopped cilantro, hot sauce, lime mayonaise... the sky is the limit. Ole!
