These Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos with Mango Salsa are a delicious and unique twist on a classic!You could say that I’m a little taco obsessed. Really wrap obsessed. Pretty much anything in a tortilla I love…gyros, veggie wraps, you name it.
For the longest time, I was traditional with my tacos and saved creativity for other types of wraps.
These tacos also display my other latest obsession: cooking with essential oils. Gotta say, I don’t know why I waited so long to get started but I can’t get enough. Anyone who has enjoyed my many quinoa recipes because my style of cooking tends to be high on seasoning has GOT to try it.
(I don’t recommend cooking with just any brand. If you want to know which brand I trust then email me at email@example.com.)
Have you ever tried cooking with essential oils?
