Creamy Chicken Tacos/Emily's Birthday Dinner/Breaking Bad

Normally about once a week our friends, Grant and Emily, come over for dinner or we go to their apartment for dinner.  Em and I are Nashvegas BFFs! :)  We live about a mile apart so it is super easy and always lots of fun!  Last night they came to our place to eat and to celebrate Em's birthday!  She turned 26 on Sunday!  

Dinner was super delicious and super easy!  I found a recipe on Pinterest and wanted to try it out--Creamy Chicken Crockpot Tacos!

4 chicken breasts
1 package taco seasoning
16 ounces salsa
1/2 cup brown minute rice
1 can drained black beans
8 ounces sour cream

Place chicken breasts in the crockpot, sprinkle with taco seasoning and pour salsa on top. Cover and cook on high for 4-6 hours.  One hour before serving, shred chicken with two forks, add rice (uncooked), black beans, and sour cream.  Stir, cover for the last hour. 

That was it!! It took no time at all, the chicken shredded so easily, and it was fantastic!  Definitely going to be making this again--heck Curt could even make it for me :)  I served it with our new favorite salad--Southwest salad/slaw kit.  Once again, super easy and really delicious!

After dinner the boys cleaned up! Curt is actually really good about doing the dishes, yay! And then we enjoyed some ice cream!!  While we ate our ice cream we watched Breaking Bad.  It is our favorite show that we all watch together! Unfortunately it only has 5 episodes left in the entire show!  Bummer.  To finish the night we played some cards.  We are addicted to Hand and Foot (thank you Grandma and Grandpa for getting us hooked!).  The boys may have won last night but we will get them next time!

I'm not sure why some of the pics are out of order, hopefully next time I can figure that out :)

Shredding the chicken--literally took less than 5 minutes!  And I always use a crockpot liner.  Makes the clean up so much easier!!

I used light sour cream to make it a little healthier.

Now it just needs to cook for an hour. Yum!

Step 3--I really slaved over it if you can't tell ;)
Curt and Grant looking at phone stuff on the computer...they do this 24/7!!! Ahhh!! 
Em and I :)
Proof about the phone stuff!  Em and I don't even understand what half of the stuff is that they talk about!

And the finished product!  YUMMY!!  Mom-you really should make this :) No weird ingredients and really tasty!
