These tex mex inspired chicken tacos are super simple to assemble, and will bubble away all day until dinner time.
And it really doesn’t get much easier than these slow cooker chicken tacos.This recipe will be your new best friend for so very many reasons. It’s only about five minutes of prep, then you let the slow cooker do your work for eight hours. Actually, it also works well as a buffet style dinner, where guests can go along and choose different salsas to top their tacos. Or, just do what I did, and eat em on a lazy Saturday night on the couch with Super Troopers playing for the millionth time. Most shockingly, these things are actually pretty healthy for you, so its a win all around.
The only thing you need to bring to the table is tortillas and any additional fillings like rice or beans. Continuing the theme of quick and easy, I made a charred corn, jalapeño and scallion pico de gallo to freshen them up a bit, you can find the whole recipe here. Trust me, it pairs perfectly. Then just add some fresh cilantro to finish the whole thing off.
With rich flavours of tomato and chipotle these tacos are light enough for a summer time meal, but also filling enough to get you through colder months. Ok, so they may not be “authentically Mexican”, or even Tex Mex for that matter, but they taste really, really good.
PS – consider picking up a taco holder for easy table serving. They’re great for presentation!
