    1- 10 oz box frozen niblet style frozen corn
    3 sprigs cilantro
    2 garlic cloves- minced
    1 small onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
    1 tablespoon butter
    2 – 16 ounce jars chunky tomato salsa- medium heat
    1– 32 oz carton chicken stock/broth
    1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning
    1 4.5 oz can green chilies ( divided)
    1 large chicken breast ( 2/3 –3/4 lb ) ( yields 2 cups shredded meat)
    4 flour tortillas
    1/3 cup corn oil

    1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese shredded
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and coarsely diced

    Open package of niblet corn and place in a small bowl.
    Chop the cilantro leaves with a small knife and place cilantro in the bowl with the corn.
    Mix the garlic and onin into the corn bowl too.
    Place this mixture in the bottom of a slow cooker with the tablespoon of butter. Turn heat on high and heat 5 minutes to melt butter and coat the mixture.
    Add the salsa, the chicken stock, the taco seasoning and 1 teaspoon of the green chilies. Cut the chicken into 3-4 pieces and add that to the pot.
    Place the remainder of the green chilies in a small bowl for the taco bar set-up.
    Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 6-8 hours.
    About one half hour before serving prepare the taco bar set-up.
    Taco Bar set-up:
    Place the oil in a small skillet and heat over medium heat .
    While heating oil slice (using a large knife) cut the tortillas in half- stack and make short 1/4 inch ribbons. Cook tortilla ribbons ( a few at a time) until golden brown . Remove ribbons from pan with slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.

    Prepare taco bar stir-ins by putting out small bowls of each:
    • tortilla ribbons
    • green chillis
    • 1/2 c Shredded Monterey pepper jack cheese
    • 1/2 c sour cream
    • 1/ 2 cup diced avocado

    After the stew has cooked remove the chicken breast and put aside to cool - about 5 minutes.
    Shred the chicken using 2 forks and return to the pot. Stir in to mix in chicken.

    Serves 6-8 hearty bowls. Place the Taco Bar set –up out to allow for individual garnishing and a fiesta mood.
