Easy Chicken Taco Recipe

I’ve been making crock pot chicken tacos for over 10 years now – this recipe is simple and it is so delicious! One of the greatest things about it is that you can make enough to serve just a couple people, or it’s easily adjusted to feed a crowd. We’ve made chicken tacos plenty of times when we entertain large groups, but my in-laws make it all the time for just the two of them. It is quite possibly the easiest, most delicious chicken taco recipe EVER!!!

Ingredients

  • 2 large boneless skinless breast of chicken- I put these in frozen
  • 1 jar 16oz salsa
  • 2 cans black beans drained
  • Fresh Homemade Flour Tortillas
  • Taco toppings: lettuce tomato, cheese, olives sour cream etc.

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken at the bottom of the crock pot. Pour the salsa and black beans over the top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. 1/2 hour before serving, remove chicken onto cutting board and shred with 2 forks. Return chicken to croc kpot and turn heat to high. Leave the lid off for remaining 1/2 hour to burn off excess liquid around chicken and beans. Depending on how much liquid your chicken distributes, you may even want to strain this a bit in a colander before serving. Sometimes it can be pretty runny and cause for a soggy taco!
  3. Serve in your favorite tortillas or taco shells and top with your favorite taco toppings!

Recipe Notes

You can sub the jar of salsa for a packet of taco seasoning if you'd like. No extra water is needed- the chicken has enough juice to keep the meat moist. You can also use pinto beans or white beans if you prefer those instead of black
