Crock Pot Chicken Tacos

So, guys, tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo. Many people think this is Mexico’s Independence Day. Nope. That would be September 16th. Cinco De Mayo actually commemorates the victory of the Mexicans over the French during the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

For a lot of Americans, though, it’s a day to drink margaritas and eat Mexican food.

I might (maybe) skip the former, but this recipe is going to satisfy the latter. This is my take on this recipe from Tasty Kitchen.

After making this the first time, I decided I would probably never make regular tacos again! They’re that delicious. So, make these. Make these right now.

Serve in taco shells, tortillas, or lettuce wraps. Top with whatever you want. We just used cheese, lettuce, and sour cream. Enjoy. Seriously, though, enjoy.

Mine made about 17 servings, ¼ cup and 110 calories each. That doesn’t include the shell or the toppings.

    First of all, I love how easy and economical this recipe is – thanks for the great idea!

    Second, I just realized you are using Google Docs to make printable recipes – brilliant :) I am totally stealing this idea ;)

    And finally, drink a margarita, girl. You deserve it.

    Happy Cinco de Mayo!

      1. You’re welcome! It’s delicious, too, so it’s the trifecta of recipe awesomeness!

      2. Steal away! I stole it from another blog, anyway. It really is a simple, easy way to do it!

      3. I probably will. I have a hair appointment ‘date’ with one of my friends in the afternoon. Maybe margaritas are in order after that!

      Happy Cinco de Mayo right back at you!

  3. Looks great! Happy 5 de Mayo!

    This sounds good – coming from California I’m use to eating burritos and tacos. I’m going to have to try it the next time we want Mexican food. I had a friend that had a Mexican Restaurant in North Ridge.
