Chicken Tacos (Croc Pot Recipe)

I tried a new chicken taco recipe late last week and we totally loved it and it was super easy.

Ok, I don't have a picture of this. I thought the recipe would be online but its not the same as what they (Taste of Home) has in their cookbook. It's from their kids pleasers cookbook if you wanted to know.

2.5 lbs chicken breast (ish)
1 jar of salsa (I use meijer)
1 can of corn (or frozen) drained
1 can of black beans drained

Mix the corn and black beans together
Layer 2/3 of the above mixture, 1/2 the salsa, chicken, then remaining 1/3 mixture and 1/2 jar of salsa in your slow cooker.
Cook on high for 3-4 hours.
Shred the chicken and cook for another hour or just keep it warm.
Serve with: tortilla shells, sour cream, lettuce, shredded cheese, and whatever other taco toppings you prefer.

As for the 2.5 lbs of chicken, I used 2 think large chicken breasts, cut them in half, and it made 1 layer of chicken in the crock pot.

This was a HUGE hit here that everyone loved it made a TON too. We had leftovers for quite a while and that was eating it all the time. :)

Found a picture that it kind of looks like but keep in mind, this is NOT top notch photography! :P


  1. We make something similar to this, and we love it too! We always make rice to go in the tortillas too. Since it DOES make a lot, I make up a bunch of burritos from the extra, wrap them in foil, then freeze them in a freezer bag. One and a half minutes in the microwave each, gets you a really fast meal the next time you're hungry :)

    1. That's an awesome idea. I've done it with beef burritos but didn't think to do it with the chicken. How do you cook the rice?
