Chicken Tacos are one of our “go to” meals when the weather turns cooler. Suddenly, I am in the mood for rich comfort food, and my slow cooker is used at least twice a week! Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos are just that-super easy and just four ingredients turn boring chicken into a tasty weeknight dinner!
Mexican food is one of my favorites! I love the smell of all the spices, the crunch chips and salsa, and how easy it is to make! Since our boys are big taco fans, I find myself having a Mexican theme for dinner a few times a month. While I like beef tacos, I prefer chicken in my taco shells-or tortilla shells I should say! We eat a lot of soft tacos in our house. So today, I want to share my recipe that is just four ingredients away from being one of your favorites!
Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos Ingredients:
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa
1 Tablespoon Taco Seasoning
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
In the bottom of your slow cooker, arrange the chicken breasts. Add the taco seasoning to evenly coat them. Next, mix the salsa and black beans together and pour this over the chicken. Set your slow cooker on low and cook for 8 hours. Shred the chicken with a fork, and return it to the slow cooker to keep it warm.
Serve in warm soft tortilla shells, topped with cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream!
Those are my favorite toppings for any Mexican food! This is one of those meals that serves your family easily, and the prep work and clean up is minimal! Is anyone else in the season of life where menu planning has fallen by the wayside and it is survival mode to get dinner on the table? Or is that just me?! This dish cannot get any easier, or more versatile. It is one of my favorite recipes to share with new brides, or take to new moms. It is practically fool proof, and turns out great every time!
This meal makes great leftovers as well. I eat it for lunch on days I am working from home, and even pull it out for another weeknight dinner on one of our extra busy nights. You can make nachos out of it, add it to rice bowls, or even freeze it for more meals in the future!
Who doesn’t love a little Mexican fiesta in their week? Add some margaritas, and I’m totally in!
