Okay, so you're not really cooking full chicken tacos in the crock pot, but with how easy and delicious this recipe is, you won't mind the extra step it takes to throw it in flour tortillas with some lettuce and diced tomato. Oh, and these crock pot chicken tacos are family friendly as proven by most everyone enjoying seconds.
I don't count Livi because the only time she asks for seconds is when we're serving chicken divan or ice cream.
Every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday in our home. Crock pot chicken tacos are a great way to change things up from the typical ground turkey tacos with homemade taco seasoning. Plus you can freeze the leftovers and use it for a future Taco Tuesday...when you forget to start the slow cooker before noon.
