Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

Slow cooker chicken tacos make the perfect weeknight meal. This meal has been a go-to in my family for years now. These tacos are extremely easy and full of flavor! The ease of using a slow cooker is amazing. Put your ingredients in it in the morning, and your meal is almost ready without much effort by dinner time!

Tacos are pretty much always a hit with my children. They love that they are able to personalize them to their taste by adding toppings of their choice! We have a taco night a couple times a month, and these slow cooker chicken tacos put a great spin on the “ordinary” taco. Don’t get me wrong, I still love a ground beef or ground turkey taco, but these chicken tacos are just so different and delicious!
