My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and ktmadeit.com was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

MAKE-IT-IN-THE-POT-MONDAY: Chili Chicken Tacos

Another recipe that always pleases! Super easy to make - only takes a few mins to slice the garlic. Crockpot recipes aren't always the prettiest to photograph, which is why this one doesn't have a photo!
{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Cooking Time: 4 hours on high, or 8 on low / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 4 servings }

Ingredients:
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 6 breasts)
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 cup prepared tomato salsa, plus more for serving (optional)
1-2 Tbsp chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp ground black pepper

8 corn or flour tortillas (we prefer soft tacos, but you could also use the hard taco shells)
cilantro, shredded cheese, lime wedges and sour cream for serving (all optional - but great additions to the dish!)

Directions:
1. In your crock pot, combine the first 6 ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours - or low for 8 hours.
2. Transfer chicken to a serving bowl and shred using two forks. Serve in taco shells with additional toppings, if desired.
