Crockpot Chicken Salsa Tacos

I really love creating and adapting recipes and rarely make the same recipe more than a few times a year...and then there was this. Probably one of my favorites and it is so simple that whenever I am in a hurry...this has just become my go to. 

You can make this recipe completely from scratch as I have done a few times...homemade salsa and taco seasoning. I really enjoyed those versions as well, but the simplicity of taco packets and the variety of different salsas on the market means I usually go with 'semi homemade' 

You really can mix this up each time. Sometimes I use green salsa but this last time I used spicy peach and the flavors just exploded off one another. If you want it more filling, add in corn or black beans. 

The options are endless!

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

1 lb chicken breast/tenderloins
1 packet taco seasoning
1 jar salsa
4 oz beer
4 oz chicken stock
1/2 lb zucchini (cubed)
extra pack of taco seasoning (optional for taste)
soft tacos/tortillas

Place the chicken in the crockpot, dump in the salsa and taco seasoning. Pour the salsa on top and then pour the beer and stock over it. Stir it and place on low for at least 5 hours and up to 8. About an hour before you plan to serve the tacos, add in the zucchini. Taste and if it needs more flavor, add in any spices or an extra packet of taco seasoning. 

Serve with cheese, sour cream, avocados or any of your favorite toppings.

  1. You can't go wrong with tacos. This makes me want to sing "add a dollop of Daisy" for some reason. Haha!
