I wanted to call this salad Taco Salad Extraordinaire because that’s exactly what it is.

It’s also an extraordinary lifesaver of a dinner….


…if, hypothetically, your baby is simultaneously getting two new teeth, learning how to stand up in her crib thus not napping AT ALL during the day and sleeping very little at night, and there is a combination wind storm/snow storm outside so you can’t do anything at all except for try to get your baby to sleep and piddle around the house organizing and re-organizing closets and drawers OH and you also have to feed your husband before your four girlfriends come over and invade your kitchen to make twenty-five meals in three hours.

This dinner will save you. Because guess what?


It uses your crock pot! The miracle tool for mama’s of teething-non-napping-babies and wives of hungry-cave-man-husbands.

All you need to do is put a few chicken breasts in your crock pot (they can even be frozen) and pour a can of enchilada sauce over the top. Then crank that sucker up to high and let it cook until the chicken is done –a couple of hours.

Then take two forks, shred your enchiladafied chicken, and put it back in the crock pot on low for….all day if you want.

Then pile it on top of some lettuce, add some more Mexican things, and…

dinner is served.
