Crockpot Chicken Tacos

By John Crowley

This family-friendly meal is so easy. Slow cooking the chicken infuses so much flavor. Use this recipe for tacos or for ultra-low-carb taco salad.

Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Ingredients
  • 1-2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 can red enchilada sauce

  • 1 can diced green chilis

  • 3/4 cup diced onion

  • Whole wheat flour tortillas

  • Toppings:

  • Grated cheddar cheese

  • Diced Tomatoes

  • Shredded lettuce

  • Sour Cream

  • Salsa

Directions
  1. Place chicken, enchilada sauce, green chilis, and onion in crockpot. Cook on low heat for 3-4 hours. When fully cooked, shred chicken with fork.

  2. Serve on warm whole wheat tortillas and top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream.

  3. If you are running high, you can easily turn this into a very low-carb taco salad by simply eliminating the tortilla.

I found there is a profound difference in taste between red enchilada sauce made with tomato and those made with red chiles. After eating the red chiles the tomato tastes awful. I use red chile version of red enchilada sauce as a base for my soups.

I tried this recipe last night and it was delicious. I left out the sour cream but added some hot salsa and it was great!

LOVE this one. Sounds very similar to one I do however I first grill the chicken to get extra flavor. Leave out the tortilla and it's a great taco salad. I also top with diced black olives. (about a 1/4 teaspoon)
