I am not sure how Taco Tuesday came about, or why it has become such a staple.
But man am I here for it!
My crockpot chicken tacos are the ideal meal for a quick and easy Tuesday night dinner.
Not only are they easy, but they’re CHEAP too! You only need a handful of ingredients, likely things you already have or that you can purchase for less than $10 at the grocery store.
Don’t believe me?
Here is a price run down;
Two chicken breasts- roughly $3
Corn Tortillas- $2 for huge pack
Coleslaw shreds- $1
Total: $9.33 and you’ll even have extras for other meals. Like twenty more tacos worth of corn tortillas!
I know it’s not a $5 dinner. But it IS a dinner that will fill you and your family up!
My crockpot chicken tacos are also simple enough that you could deconstruct for your nuggets that are learning to eat and your toddlers will enjoy.
And of course you’ll love the simplicity.
Chicken in crockpot- done.
Set timer- done.
Forget about it and rock your day- YES!
Shred chicken and slice up extras- Easy.
Heat up tortillas- Extra step that is SO worth it.
Being compeltely honest, I never heated my corn tortillas before recently. I thought they were so gross because I ate them cold and hard.
What was I doing???
Then one day after I scarfed down some tacos from a restaurant near by, I got to thinking “these tortillas are cooked…hmmm…”. So I grabbed some corn tortillas during the following grocery trip and decided to try out heating them up on the stove in a pan with some coconut oil. HOOOOOLY poop they were GOOD!
I don’t think I’ll ever make tacos with flour tortillas ever again. Cooked corn tortillas are so good, why would I go back??
So make sure of all the steps in my crockpot chicken taco recipe, you do NOT skip cooking up the tortillas. It really makes all of the difference!
Now before we dive into the cheap and easy recipe, lets go over the kitchen tools that you’ll need.
