 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8                    boneless skinless chicken breast halves
                         OR
    3      pounds        sirloin, stew beef, or whatever is lean
                         and on sale
    1      package       taco seasoning mix
                         water to cover
                         cheddar cheese -- shredded
                         sour cream
                         refried beans
                         sliced black olives
                         sliced green onions
                         chopped fresh tomatoes
                         salsa
                         shredded lettuce
                         sliced jalapenos
                         tortillas, corn or flour
 
 Leave meat in whole pieces; you may even put it in frozen.
 In the morning, put the meat into the crockpot, add taco seasoning mix,
 and water.  Plug it in and turn it on simmer according to manufacturer’s
 directions.
 If you have time in the morning, shred the cheese and lettuce and chop
 the tomatoes and store in ziplock or Rubbermaid containers in the
 refrigerator.
 
 When meat is cooked, remove with slotted spoon to a platter and allow to
 cool enough to handle.  Place chicken breasts or beef on cutting board,
 and using a fork, shred the meat, while discarding any pieces of fat,
 etc, that you find.  Return shredded meat to crockpot.  Warm refried
 beans in small sauce pan or microwave. Wrap tortillas in foil and warm
 in the oven.  Put remaining ingredients out in dishes on table (or
 counter) and holler “DINNER!!!” very loudly.  The diners can put
 together their own soft tacos or burritos with the ingredients they like
 best.

 NOTES : You probably won't see this done on a fancy cooking show, but 
 this is a really easy dinner to make that my family really enjoys, and
 there are always leftovers for easy after-school grazing the next day,
 or even another meal.
