Taco salads are my favorite when I am craving a big hearty salad. If you want to turn this into tacos, just reduce the lettuce, omit the dressing and heat up some tortillas!

To make this easy dish, I basically added chicken breasts and black beans to the slow cooker, seasoning it with taco seasonings and topped it with salsa. Doesn’t get easier than that! A few hours later I shredded the chicken and combined everything for this wonderful topping to this salad.

Filling and delicious – under 300 calories!

I also whipped up some of my favorite zesty avocado cilantro buttermilk dressing for the perfect salad that’s so satisfying and super easy to make.  Try this for taco Tuesday!

And since so many are asking, I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). Although I love my Instant Pot, I still use my slow cooker all the time! I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This crock pot is so great, I actually own two!

    Can I use pre cooked/shredded chicken in this? If so how long do you suggest to cook that with the other items?
