I was very excited about this week’s topic of Dishes in 5 Ingredients or Less, because I just made an amazing batch of these crock pot chicken tacos.  Not only does this recipe use only THREE ingredients, but since the meat is prepared in the crock pot, it’s effortless to throw together and comes out extremely juicy and tender.  Since I cook for the girls in the office, I love to toss all the ingredients in the crock pot before I go to bed and cook on low overnight.  In the morning, I pack the chicken to-go and take it in for lunch.

There is a an endless combination of meals you can make featuring this succulent and zesty chicken.  I like to use a wheat wrap and pile on the chicken, low-fat cheese, lettuce, onion, avocado, etc. for a healthy burrito; top shredded lettuce with cowboy caviar, the chicken taco meat, and drizzle with a balsamic vinaigrette for a flavorful salad; or make nachos by topping tortilla chips with cheese, chicken, cowboy caviar, lettuce and Greek Yogurt.

Whichever way you choose to serve it; it’s guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser!

Order at the counter, then take a seat

Last Tuesday we went to grab a bite at Don Pedro on Lawrenceville Highway in Lilburn.  OMG.  Probably the best Mexican food I’ve had in a long time.  A friend discovered their sister restaurant (same name, different location) on Buford Highway recently and has been raving about it.  The Lilburn location was a little closer to our house, so we decided to check it out.  I’m so glad we did.

Not only is Don Pedro’s home to the $.99 taco, but they have all you can drink Horchata, which is one of Jim’s favorite summertime drinks.  Also, be sure to taste the Jarrito — a fruit flavored Mexican soda.  They have an orange/mango flavor (we weren’t sure which it was) and pineapple.

Obviously, you can’t go wrong with a $.99 taco, but all the varieties we got were delicious and included: Asada (steak), Pastor (a spicy pork) and Picadillo de Pollo (shredded chicken).  Our friend also tried the Lengua (tongue) and said it was very yummy.

In addition to the tacos, we tried the Mulitas (two tortillas laid flat with steak, avocado, cheese, onions and cilantro), Chicken Tostadas and the Tortas, a meat and veggie filled sandwich pocket.  We also enjoyed a side of Rice and Beans.  Between the four of us that went for dinner, we couldn’t agree on what we like best, but it was a toss up between the Mulitas and the Tortas. (For the record, my vote is for the Tortas.)

We couldn’t stop thinking about their tasty fare, so Jim went back yesterday and picked up a to go order for dinner :0)
