  • salt & pepper
  • 1 can crispy fried onions (small can)
  • 12 corn tortillas


  • Add chicken to slow cooker and sprinkle well with seasoning blend
  • Top with ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred using 2 forks
  • Add a ladle or two of the cooking juices and discard remaining (you want it to be juicy but not swimming)
  • Toss with additional ½ cup BBQ sauce and return to slow cooker on keep warm setting until ready to serve
  • Add thawed corn to large bowl
  • Add remaining ingredients and toss until combined, adding salt and pepper to taste

I cooked this on low for 7 hours in my 4 quart multi cooker.
