Every home cook needs a secret weapon recipe that goes together in minutes and pleases the pickiest of palates. One of my favorites is this simple recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos. I’ve served this to family, friends, the youth group, etc… and have always gotten good reviews.
For entertaining purposes, you can make an easy taco bar with these by whipping up a batch of my 5 Minute Guacamole and Cilantro Lime Rice. Add some shredded cheese, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, jalapenos, olives, green onions or whatever your family likes and you’re done. I like to serve it with White Queso, chips and tortillas so folks can make nachos if the prefer.
I don’t know about you, but I love a recipe that feeds my family several times without making us feel like we’re eating leftovers. Because this chicken is so flavorful, you can use the leftovers in quesadillas, burrito bowls, enchiladas, burritos, taco salads, wraps etc… Also, you can make a big batch of chicken taco meat to freeze for super fast meals later on.
