Terra’s Crock Pot BBQ


OK, I’m giving in…the ‘secret’ to my amazing BBQ 😉 sigh….

BBQ sauce – which ever style you prefer –
are you NC style or Memphis?? Memphis all the way! 😉
…Dr. Pepper
Burger buns

Throw the chicken in the crock pot (I usually use 1lb of breasts, but, like to double to freeze)

Dump in ‘some’ BBQ sauce (can you have too much? No didn’t think so!)

Pour in 3/4 can Dr. Pepper (drink the remainder!)

Let simmer on low for 6-8 hours

Shred and put on buns!

Lime Chicken Tacos


I ‘stole’ this recipe from my friend Kristen. She has some very yummy recipes!

Place the chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine lime juice and chili powder; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until chicken is tender.

Remove chicken; cool slightly. Shred and return to the slow cooker. Stir in corn and salsa. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes or until heated through.

Serve in tortillas with sour cream, cheese and lettuce if desired.

Spices to your liking (listed below is what I use; see note at end of recipe)
