Taco Salad: Day 2 of Slow Cooker Whole Chicken Menu

So, the day after you have a slow cooker whole chicken what do you do with...well...all that chicken?Well, my friend (who, incidentally, also told me about the whole slow cooker chicken deal) recommended a taco salad. I thought that was brilliant. Here you go: Day 2 on the Slow-Cooker-Whole-Chicken-Budget-Friendly-and-Delicious Menu. =)

Taco Salad:
All ingredients to taste:
Tortilla Chips
Romaine lettuce (or any lettuce)
Guacamole (recipe below if you're feeling domestic that day)
Sour cream
Black Beans (might I recommend Trader Joe's Cuban Black Beans? My personal favorite)
Tomatoes and onions, if you haven't already put them in the guacamole
Chicken (left over from the night before
Salt, pepper, taco seasoning, whatever you like to add to the sour cream, guacamole, or chicken

Stack together and devour. Mmmmmm...

Recipe for absolutely delicious homemade guacamole found here and below.


3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)
In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.

I give this guac a 4 star rating. It's really just so good.
