Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos Tips
How can you make slow-cooker chicken tacos your own?
This dish is one you can easily customize to your own tastes. We like using chicken thighs because they stay juicier longer. If you like things on the spicy side, add a jalapeno
or two, or pick something a little hotter if you really love heat! There is a variety of salsas you can use that will significantly change the flavor of this dish as well.
What can you serve with slow-cooker chicken tacos?
Because these tacos cook in the slow cooker, you’ll have plenty of time to create fun Mexican-inspired side dishes
to go with them. Don’t forget how easy—and tasty—homemade guacamole
How long will slow-cooker chicken tacos last?
As does chili or stew, this dish seems to taste a little better a day or two after it’s made. Just pop leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 days. To serve, simply reheat in a saucepan over medium, adding water or broth as needed. You can also freeze the cooled chicken mixture for up to 6 months.
