We love taco salad. Another way to do the chicken is to put whatever chicken you have, tenders or chicken breasts, in the crock pot with taco seasoning & water. How much taco seasoning & water depends on how much chicken you have & how spicy you like it but if you leave it cooking in the crock pot all day it's so good & just falls apart. You can't even really call it shredding. I like to make a lot and freeze it for tacos, taco salad or nachos.
The salsa in the last post looks good too. I may have to try it this week.
