These tacos only have 4 easy ingredients, and they are easy to make in the crock pot, or in the oven in only a few hours. Dump everything in and let them simmer all afternoon. Then fry up some tortillas, and dinner is served!

Crockpot Chicken Tacos Ingredients
5 to 6 pieces Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 16-ounce jar Salsa
1 small can green chiles (diced up)
Dump everything into a crock pot no water needed. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours. When done, the chicken should shred easily when stirred with a fork. It is even better as leftovers the next day. Sometimes when I don’t have all day I just put it in an oven baking dish on 350 for 3 hours in the oven and it’s pretty ready to shred by then.
|Use your favorite taco seasoning packet and salsa brand for these. I just used generic salsa and it was wonderful. I have heard that Paul Newman’s Own salsa is great for these tacos too. Maybe Mango Salsa if you want to try
a sweeter taco mix?
|I try to find the diced green chiles in the can, but these were on sale for 50 cents, so who minds chopping a
little to save a lot. These can cost up to $2.00 a can! What a savings I scored!
|2 seconds to chop them up. It’s kind of fun anyway. I feel like a real chef with my chef’s knife!|
Top it with lettuce, cilantro, tomato, avocado, sour cream and cheese. They are delicious, messy and yummy.

|The hubs likes flour tortillas and lots of avocado so here is his taco. It’s pretty massive I’d say. He likes them that way. Nice and sloppy. Messy eating means good eating, I always say!|
With the leftovers you can do a Tortilla Soup, check out my very favorite recipe HERE., or add some rice or black beans and make chicken burritos! Yum!
