Easy Crockpot Chicken Tacos for Busy Weeknights

These Easy Crockpot Chicken Tacos were inspired by a camping trip my family took to Moab. I needed to make something ahead of time that would feed the masses while having delicious leftovers for our trip.

The good news is, these tacos can be made with little to no experience in the kitchen!  With soccer, lacrosse, and swimming all after school during the week, I need recipes that can be ready when we get home.  The prep time for these tacos takes less than 5 minutes or less, which is manageable during our busy morning rush!  I love when I can easily toss all the ingredients in a crock-pot and have a meal ready by 5 p.m.!

Once you’re home, shred your chicken and spice it up with your favorite taco toppings.  Add a little salsa, fresh cilantro, sour cream or cotija cheese….and you’re in business!

A little fresh avocado is also a nice touch!

The chicken and Rotelle create the perfect amount of cooking liquid in the crockpot, so don’t worry about things drying out while it cooks.  You can simply set the timer and go on about your busy day.
