Delicious Hawaiian Pulled Chicken Tacos - made in the slowcooker so it's a great dinner idea for busy families

I stress cook, and let’s just say that today I made a lot of food. These Hawaiian Chicken Tacos, Homemade Tortillas, and a few little easy desserts. The day I’m writing this, the province of BC is under a state of emergency. My neighbors to the south are engulfed in flames.

My husband is down where the fires are to help his peers in his line of work to prevent some disasters, and that makes me nervous. In the past, whenever I thought of wildfires I always thought of the firefighters as emergency personal. The thought of utility workers didn’t cross my mind. However, the power guys and the natural gas workers are away from their families as well as the firefighters, police, along with other emergency personnel.

 

BC Wildfire outside Williams Lake
Friday, July 7th. My husband snapped this photo north of Williams Lake as he was heading to help. The fire was getting closer to Highway 97. This photo is nothing compared to the photos I have recently seen online and on the news. Such a terrible situation.

At the time of writing this (July 8) over the BC Wildfire has taken over 4000 hectares near Ashcroft, 2000 hectares north of Williams Lake, and a 1000 hectare fire is burning near the Williams Lake airport. Today a fire started west of where I live, and when I mapped it out, it was only a 20-minute drive from my house. However, it’s small and it looks like it’s controlled.

I’m assuming (and praying) that by the time this post goes live, the wildfires here in British Columbia will be contained and the almost 40,000 evacuees will be back into their homes (or will know the status of their home). Update: Sadly, this isn’t the case. The community of 100 Mile has been evacuated, and right now Williams Lake is under alert.

On to happier things…

I made these tacos ahead of time in the slow cooker, by doing this I was able to save a lot of time by dumping the ingredients in the crockpot and walking away.

After I shredded the chicken, after 4 hours on high, I lined a baking sheet with foil and baked for 20 minutes. I did that because I wanted to take a lot of the moisture out of the chicken. This is an optional step.

While that was roasting, I cooked up some homemade flour tortillas and we were eating in no time.
