Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Tacos

Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Tacos are so easy to make. They are full of flavor and take less than ten minutes to prep. All of your ingredients go in the slow cooker and it does the work for you! You can enjoy these Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Tacos that taste just like they came from your favorite Mexican Restaurant!

Seriously, I’m obsessed with Mexican food – mainly Tex-Mex, but fajitas, tacos, burritos, cotija, and don’t even get me started on guacamole! We live in a small town and don’t have many options for Mexican food. And let’s just say the Mexican Restaurants we do have leave a lot to be desired.

That’s why I love cooking up my own delicious Mexican whenever I can! I’m sharing this Chicken Taco Recipe with you because it’s soooo delicious and EASY!

Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Tacos

To make the chicken for these amazing tacos you’ll need chicken breasts, salsa, a can of roasted tomatoes with chiles (like Rotel, store brand works fine too!), and cilantro!

Turn your crock pot on low add your chicken breasts in an even layer on the bottom. Next, add your cans of Rotel. Add two tbsp of salsa. Finally, add the cilantro, green onions, & tomato wedges.

Let the chicken cook on low for about 4-6 hours. Flipping them over a few times. The amount of time it will take depends on the thickness of your chicken breasts and the amount you use. The Chicken is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165. The best way to measure this is with a meat thermometer. You can tell that it is ready to temp when it starts shredding on its own.

Keep the Slow Cooker on low. Chop the chicken into smaller sections. Make any sides you’ll be having for the tacos. I love to do beans and rice.

Finally, prepare your tortillas and any toppings you’d like! Below is a list of our favorite taco toppings to get you started!

Christmas is by far my favorite time of year! It’s filled with so many great traditions. Making cookies, decorating the tree, building a Gingerbread House, and one of my favorites: having a Holiday Ham Dinner. When it comes to Ham, it’s important to purchase a high quality Ham from a company you can trust. Hatfield® has a fool proof recipe for creating the best pork products. I love their promise to the environment: they use environmentally-friendly fuel sources and take recycling very seriously.

Plus, they make sure their farmers meet the highest standards for good farming practices and use only pigs from a long line of heritage. Then they treat those pigs with care, practicing high safety standards, and holding humane handling training. They are ethically raised with no hormones or steroids added!

Long story, short – They take pride in what they do and provide the best pork products for you and your family to enjoy. I’m happy to be using Hatfield® Ham in my Holiday Dinner!
