Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos
What family doesn't love tacos, and what mom doesn't love a good slow cooker recipe? This recipe is the best of both, and as a bonus, calls for less expensive chicken thighs that can withstand hours of slow cooking without losing their texture.
- Place chicken in the bowl of a slow cooker. Top with salsa, diced green chiles, cumin, onion and garlic. Cover and set on low. Cook for 8 hours.
- Remove chicken from pot, shred, and return to juices.
- Spoon chicken into taco shells, with whatever toppings your family likes. Or use the meat to make burritos, tostadas or as a filling for enchiladas.

This is a home run! It was a very simple recipe to do and could easily be done on a weeknight when you've got a lot of activities and no time to cook.
Charlie said he "doesn't like chicken" but he ate two of these tacos without a fuss.
Caroline also said she didn't want any taco meat, but once she bit in it she didn't complain the rest of the dinner and ate the whole thing.
