Hey everyone! We’re still busy packing and getting ready for our big move on Saturday! So I’m having a friend of mine share a  yummy  recipe for Crock-Pot Chicken Tacos! I mean, come on. Just look at the photos below and grab a napkin because they’ll definitely cause some drooling. So without further delay – please welcome Chelsea from Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles! If you haven’t heard of/checked out her blog – please do! It’s one of my favorites!!


Thank you so much to Kendall for having me today. I’m Chelsea and I’m a 23 year old mother and nursing student who believes the world’s greatest problems can be solved with rainbow colored sprinkles. Sometimes I use fifty words when five would do, but I’ve loved words and writing for as long as I can remember. Oh and if you were wondering, I blog over at Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles. Since I started my blog on a rainy day in May of 2011, I’ve been documenting the life of my daughter Alea, sharing our favorite recipes, my attempts at DIYs, trying to inspire other moms to interact with their littles with my toddler activities & I’ve tried my hand at some silly outfit photos as well. Our family may not have started in the most conventional way, but we’ve settled in just fine in a cozy little redneck town in Minnesota. (Oh how I love these silly little introductions!)

I’m excited to share with you one of my favorite recipes today. It’s my favorite because it’s so ridiculously simple, it’s inexpensive, and it includes a crock pot. Yep, those are my basic requirements for the perfect summer time meal. It’s perfect for those hot days when you just can’t bare to stand over a hot stove or turn on the oven. It’s even better if you’re crazy busy and you need just a smile, throw-together kind of meal!
I hope you enjoy!

Thanks again to Kendall for having me today. I hope I got you drooling with today’s recipe and I hope you’ll give it a try! Even more so, I’d love if you came and stopped by Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles sometime!
