Weeknights are really busy for us right now. With 5 kids, each active in their own after school sports practices and games, we don’t have a lot of time on some days to spend in the kitchen making dinner. One of our favorite go-to family recipes for us are these Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos.
They are probably one of the easiest meals you will ever make. These Chicken Tacos literally take minutes to make and they are delicious. Everyone loves these at our house and I have even gotten some cheers when the kids have found out we are eating them for dinner.
We always eat them with Costco’s uncooked tortillas. Have you ever tried them? They are so yummy. They are probably the hardest part of this weeknight dinner. Then you will just need to prepare the toppings for your tacos. I usually have the kids grate some cheese and slice the tomatoes, lettuce and avocados while I am cooking the tortillas on the stove top.
Now for the recipe! Seriously…it doesn’t get any better than this. You probably won’t even need to print this recipe out because it is so easy to remember. But I will provide a printable recipe for you anyways so that you can keep a copy in your Family Favorite Recipe Book.
I had a few people ask…this is the Slow Cooker I use and love!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos
4-5 Chicken Breasts
3 cups of Salsa
1 cup Sour Cream
Toppings of your Choice
- Place your Chicken Breasts in your Slow Cooker and cover them with the Salsa.
- Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
- When there is an hour left of cooking time (or an hour before you will be eating) shred the Chicken between 2 forks and place back into the Slow Cooker.
- Add 1 cup of Sour Cream to the Slow Cooker and mix around in the Chicken.
- When fully cooked, drain chicken and serve hot on tortilla with your favorite taco toppings.
So the next time you have a really busy after school schedule, throw this in the Slow Cooker and let it cook while you are running the kids around to their games and practices. You will be happy to come home to a delicious home cooked meal that the whole family will love!
