I have a mild obsession with Mexican food.
Like... I may or may not have just eaten a Taco Cupcake.... for breakfast.
Anyway, my favorite meal is chicken tacos. I can seriously eat them any time day or night. Nothing tops lean chicken, lettuce, cheese and sour cream all smushed together. It's heaven in a tortilla.
The bad news: My family isnt quite as obsessed.
Which leaves me wanting chicken tacos and having to suffer through... well anything else.
Crock Pot Chicken Tacos
First of all, this is so stinkin easy, I can not believe I am 32 years old and this is the first time I have cooked this.
Wait, yes I can. Have you seen me try to boil eggs?
Sorry, where was I?
- boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- taco seasoning
- 1 jar mild salsa
- 1 cup chicken broth
- taco shells and toppings of choice
Ready for these instructions... throw everything into the Crockpot. Mix well. Cover and let sit to do its thing for 6 hours on medium. When it is done the meat will be so tender it will just fall apart into shredded chicken goodness.
The HARDEST part of this whole recipe - if you work from home like I do - smelling it cook all day without being able to eat it!
Rio Bravo is going to miss me....
Welllll, you know you have two 6 ft PLUS eating machines at your beck and call. When you need to squash that craving, feel free to make up a crock pot full and just whistle for my walking stomachs. That stuf is a-maz-ing!!
Do you put the chicken in the crock pot raw? Also, how large of a jar of salsa? Thanks!
yep, the chicken was raw. And I used the little jar - not the big tall one 🙂
Thanks! They turned out great, I will definitely be making this dish again!! 🙂

I've got to find me a crock pot! I think that's the one thing I left with my ex-husband!
How much chicken? And is there any way to substitute the salsa for anything else, as my family doesn't particularly like salsa?
(Also, on a side note, I love the way you spell your name.)
Hey Lindsey! I love yours too! I bet you have the same misspelling haggles I do LOL
I used an entire package/bag of chicken - it was like 5 breasts. Quite a bit. And honestly, we are not big salsa fans here either, but it cooked up perfectly. We only use salsa for this one dish - I would not know anything else to substitute. Try it though - you may find out you like it just like we did 🙂

I have a major weakness for tacos! I'll have to try the crockpot recipes!!
