Crockpot Chicken Tacos Recipe


Description

This Crockpot Chicken Tacos recipe is simple, flavorful, and makes the best weeknight dinner for busy families.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 816 ounces salsa of choice*
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning 
  • 12 flour or corn tortillas
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Place the salsa, black beans, corn, and taco seasoning in the slow cooker. Stir to combine.
  2. Lightly salt and pepper the chicken on both sides. Add it to the top of the other ingredients.
  3. Cook in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  4. At the end of the cooking time, shred the chicken breasts. You can do this right in the crockpot using two forks.
  5. Stir to combine the shredded chicken with the rest of the ingredients.
  6. Serve with tortillas and toppings of your choice. Enjoy!

Notes

*8 ounces salsa will yield a less saucy chicken mixture, while 16 ounces will yield a more saucy mixture. I prefer 16 ounces, my family likes 8 ounces, so it really is a personal preference. The result pictured in this post is 8 ounces of salsa used.
