Taco night will look different at our house from now on. Once I made these Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos, I don't know if I can go back to the normal way of using ground beef… and that's hard for me to say because I would usually prefer beef over chicken every time.

This recipe is part of an AMAZING slow cooker dump meal plan!

Ok back to the recipe at hand…

These are WAY easier for me – and according to my kids, they taste WAY better. No need to use a seasoning mix pack with this – just 4 spices plus salt.

Simply toss in 2-3 chicken breasts (about 1-1.5 pounds). I cut mine into chunks so they would cook faster. Then put all the other ingredients on top. Cook on high in your slow cooker for 4 hours, and then you're ready to shred the chicken!

At this point, the chicken will just fall apart and shred pretty easily. You can use forks, or a potato masher.

Serve in either soft or hardshell, and then top as you normally would!

This also would work AMAZING for freezer cooking. Just toss all the ingredients in a freezer bag to cook at a later date.
