Are you a taco lover? I sure am! In fact, I could most likely eat tacos just about every day of the week and never grow tired! So many varieties, toppings, flavors, and more!
These tasty tacos come together using the convenience of your slow cooker! Simply place the ingredients into your crockpot in the morning, move on with your day, and come dinnertime, shred the chicken and serve! Doesn’t get easier than that, right?

To change things up from serving this chicken in tortillas, you can also serve on tostada shells, over lettuce, in a wrap, over tortilla chips, and more! Plus, you can choose between flour and corn tortillas! Personally, I use flour more often due to the fact they roll up a bit easier. Crispy taco shells are a fav in my house too! You can’t go wrong!
