as things finally start changing from winter to spring weather around the ranch it also means time to 'spring work' the cattle. (in really simple terms, the cattle get a fly tag and immunization shots to ramp up for the spring/summer weather conditions).
friends and fellow ranchers from other ranchers close by come to help and get the job done. the help goes back to them when they need a few extra hands on their ranch as well.
each day is an early morning start (before the sun rises) to finish up around lunch time. one of the days this week it was our turn to bring lunch for the group and we made slow-cooker chicken tacos that turned out really delicious!
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of cream of chicken soup
1 can rotel
1 package taco seasoning
fresh cilantro, for serving (optional)
I also added a little shredded cheddar cheese to serve on top
*I made this to feed 10 hungry cowboys- this recipe easily multiplies*
Put chicken, soup, and rotel in slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over everything. Cook on low for 6 hours. If shredding the chicken, pull the breasts out and shred; return back to slow cooker. Stir in cilantro and heat just until everything is combined.
