It’s no secret that I love using my crockpot to make dinner. It doesn’t matter the time of year, in winter I make tons of soups and stews…and in summer I do more shredded chicken and pork.

Last year I learned a little trick about shredding chicken. After cooking it all day in the slow cooker, and it’s super moist and tender, you can toss it into your electric mixer with the paddle attachment for a minute or two. I turn it on low, and seriously within a minute, you have perfectly shredded chicken!

These tacos come together in no time too. I used a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Wing sauce with my shredded chicken. I topped these tacos with some carrots and celery (for a little crunch) and some homemade blue cheese dressing to cut some of the heat (in a hurry, you can use your favorite store bought blue cheese dressing if you prefer).

I love dinners that taste incredible, and you would think that someone slaved in the kitchen…but no. Just my hard working Ninja doing it’s job!
