Easy Recipes: Creamy Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Sharing is caring!

I love Tex-Mex food.

I love using my crockpot- especially in the summertime when it is 103 degrees in Texas.

I love throwing chicken in the crockpot frozen. It is empowering.

This chicken taco recipe is amazing! It is quick and easy to dump into the slow cooker and my family loves it. 

Make sure you check out all of my easy recipes for more meal planning ideas.

This is an excellent dump and go recipe.

If you do not have Sazon and Adobo, just use a packet of taco seasoning.

I made this in my 6 qt., oval, crockpot.

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, you could use chicken thighs if you prefer
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can Rotel, undrained
  • 1 pkt Sazon (this is on the Latino aisle and comes in a box and is made by Goya)
  • couple shakes of Adobo (another Goya product right by the Sazon)
  • favorite taco toppings (lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, salsa, guacamole)

Add the chicken to your crockpot.

I threw them in there frozen.

Do a couple of shakes of Adobo seasoning over the top of the soup mixture evenly.

Adobo is a Latin All Purpose Seasoning that is very popular in many Puerto Rican dishes.

Evenly add a packet of Sazon over the soup mixture.

Pop a lid on it and cook on high for 4-6 hours (I did 6 hours) or on low for 8-10 hours.

When the chicken is done, shred the chicken and mix it back into the soup mixture to make a creamy taco filling.

I heated up our flour tortillas. This can easily be done in the microwave.

I used soft taco sized tortillas. Fill each one with a couple of scoops of filling.

Top with lettuce (I used bagged salad- keep it easy).

Top with some tomatoes and cheese and whatever else you like.

    That looks so good! It has been in the 100’s in NC, too, and I am almost 100% crockpot cooking now. Tex mex is my fave, too, so this one is going on the menu in the next day or two. Only I don’t have on hand are tomatoes and Sazon.

    Thanks so much for sharing!!
