A super easy chicken taco dinner! Set it and forget it for these Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Tacos!
Since fall is quickly coming upon us, we wanted to do an easy crockpot meal that is as easy as put the ingredients in and forget it until it is time to eat! Not only is it easy, it also scales up easily to serve anywhere from a single family to a large party, so this is perfect for those busy fall weekends.

Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Chicken
It is made even easier with the ability to use frozen chicken and just let it cook! The chicken ends up tender and juicy, perfect for use on tacos, nachos or in enchiladas. You can regulate your spice level and adjust the spiciness to your taste by adjusting the amounts of spices you put in and as well as choosing the type of Rotel you put in!
What Ingredients are Needed for the Chicken Tacos?
- Pepper and Salt
We like to serve these slow cooker chicken shredded tacos on soft shell tortillas with fresh cut tomatoes, sour cream and cheese. We also top it with some fresh cut chives and a splash of hot sauce or salsa. Simple, quick and delicious, the chicken is usually a hit with our two boys as well which is always a nice bonus. This also freezes well, so you can make a big batch and save some for later. We hope you enjoy!

A great weeknight meal. Set it to cook in the morning and it will be perfect for dinner.

Put frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of the crockpot, top with spices and veggies. Pour tomatoes or Rotel over all.
