Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos


Remember my go-to Mexican chicken recipe that I'm obsessed with? It's made an appearance on here multiple times, especially since you can use it in so many different recipes... and today it's front and center with these tacos. I even have a Mexican chicken verde version that you can also use here instead.

Tacos are one of my favorite comfort foods, plus who doesn't want to come home from work and eat tacos and drink margaritas? I'll tell you... nobody. I challenge you to think of a more perfect thing ever invented than tacos. You can use any kind of protein, or no protein. You can add copious amounts of guacamole and no one will second guess you. You can jazz them up with any kind of salsa you want. Cheese - totally acceptable. I mean, what more could you possibly ask for?

These Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos take almost no time to make and they'll disappear faster than imaginable!

  1. I just made these for dinner tonight after seeing your Instagram info! I made them with my dutch oven and after only 30 minutes of cooking time, they were AMAZING!! I'll absolutely make this again!

  2. if this is what you can make in a slow cooker, then damn, girl, i gotta get me one! i want to stuff ALL the tacos in my face.

  3. The slow cooker is definitely the way to go for busy days and these tacos would be a big hit for dinner at my house!


  4. I'm starting to think that I should just give my slow cooker a home on my kitchen counter - I've been bookmarking recipes all week! This one tops the list. Thank you so much!

  5. The shredded chicken recipe is a favourite of mine, I have some sitting in the fridge now. Great to see another idea for using it and also the slow cooker version of it, I've always made it in a skillet.

  6. Oh wow these look super delicious. I bet the slow cooker really lets those flavors seep in too.
