Happy Cinco de Mayo!

While we all patiently wait and stalk our mailboxes for the newest release Reese to arrive, Cinco De Mayo is on the horizon!

I was looking through our Bijou pieces and one of my favorites caught my eye! Tequila Sunrise Maddox from the Mixology Collection. Paired with a festively trimmed straw hat, sunglasses and a some fancy fringe sandals....I believe Harlow will be ready to celebrate in style! I wish I had a sombrero, but man this was almost as cute!

Holidays always imply fabulous food paired along with the celebrations! I am not sure about you but my family loves a variety of Mexican dishes; especially chicken tacos! One of our very favorites! You also can utilize the chicken for so many things if you don’t use it all up. I usually always double  the recipe to meal prep for other dishes throughout the week. We tend to lead a busy life like most of my other friends! I tend to use my crockpot as a staple, especially on the weekends! Here is what you need to make shredded chicken tacos in the crock pot:

2lbs Chicken Tacos
1/8 cup Olive Oil
2 cups salsa or Taco sauce if you have picky no chunk/green stuff kiddos ❤️
3 tablespoons taco seasoning
Light salt and pepper
Add fresh cilantro chopped up if you have some!
* I chop a handful or so and toss it on top

Turn on Crockpot on High for 4 hours or Low for 8 hours
Add olive oil
Add chicken
Season with salt and pepper both sides 
Sprinkle Taco Seasoning on both sides
Top with Salsa and Cilantro
*I add  1/4 cup water or chicken broth for a little extra moisture, I don’t like anything to get dried out! Extra salsa also never hurts!

Cover *  Cook * Shred * Serve
