    About a week ago I polled my readers on Facebook to see if they preferred tacos to burritos. I think the proof was in the numbers when an overwhelming number of individuals responded back with a strong “TACOS!!!!”

    I also know that my fellow foodies love a good slow cooker recipe, so Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos were born!

    Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos are perfect for any family who loves good flavor, but also loves to save time. All your ingredients get dumped in the crock pot and simmered on low all day, combining all the delicious spices and flavors together.

    Just do it before you head out for the day and then they’re all ready to go once you’re back home!

    This recipe would also work great for a potluck or a get together. Just prep ahead of time and have it ready to go for your guests. Even better just throw a taco party because everyone would come to that. I mean, who would say no to tacos?

    Don’t forget to have all your toppings ready to go to load up your slow cooker chicken tacos. I like using a squeeze of lime juice, some sriracha, salsa verde, and crumbled queso fresco to finish mine off.

    I also use soft flour tortillas with this recipe, but if you’re a hard taco kind of person then feel free to use those instead.

    Tools for making Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos:

    Slow Cooker – You’ll need one to make this recipe!

    Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

    Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!
