Ingredients

12 corn tortillas or tostada shells

*How I make my shredded chicken:

I take 2-4 chicken breasts and stick them in a crock pot, top them with 1 cup of jarred salsa. I cook for 4-5 hours on low. I pull them out and shred them using 2 forks. I discard about 75% of the liquid that is left in the crockpot. I add the shredded chicken back to the crockpot and mix with the liquid and add any additional seasonings. This usually will last me 2 meals.
