Crock Pot Tex Mex Chicken Tacos: A Few Notes
- I regularly use frozen chicken breasts in this recipe, however, when I am in a time crunch, I throw in pre-cooked frozen grilled chicken breast strips instead and the dish will be ready in 1-2 hours.
- I like to use a can of northern beans and a can of black beans, but you could use any kind of beans you like.
- We love to use the mini and regular size soft taco boats, but we have also just thrown this on regular flour tortillas or nachos. It would also make great quesadillas.
- This recipe typically takes 3-4 hours on high. You will know it is done when the chicken easily pulls apart using two forks. If the chicken is tough, cook a little longer.
- I have used everything from my 4 qt slow cooker to my 6 qt wifi crock pot to make this recipe. However, as always, please make sure that the first time you try this recipe when you have time to adjust the time for your unit.
