Quick Dinner Idea

This one isn't really a recipe, but an idea of how easy eating Paleo can be.  I hear quite often that Paleo is a lot of work because it requires so much food prep.  When it really doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming at all.  Many of my best meals are thrown together on the fly.  Take last night for example, I came home late from the gym and hungry, what to do?  I had some 80% grass fed ground beef that needed cooked, so I cooked it all up, separated some out to eat and put the rest in a container in the fridge for use later.  I threw some of the cooked ground beef in a pan with a partial can of tomatoes with green chilies, some left over El Pato and some leftover Italian seasoned squash (which consisted of: zucchini, summer squash, red peppers, sweet onion, and some seasoning).  And guess what, delicious!  The dinner idea I am about to share with you is another example of this. Early in the day rinse and drain 5 pounds of chicken breasts ( I used boneless skinless), pour two cans of Herdez Salsa Verde, over them, chop up 1 small red onion and toss that in too.  Set your crock-pot to low and cook about 4-5 hours depending on your crock-pot.  Shred the chicken and return to the crock pot, cooking for about another hour on high.  Remove from your crock pot and you have the meat for Chicken Tacos.  Mmmmm...yum! If you keep some ready made fresh guacamole on hand, it's great for nights like this.  A leaf of lettuce, your shredded chicken topped with some salsa or Pico de Gallo, Guacamole and your good to go.
