Do you have taco night once a week? These Crockpot Chicken Tacos are a lifesaver because they are so easy to make yet so delicious.
Living in Texas, my family expects tacos at least once a week. In Texas, it seems that tacos once a week is a requirement to live in the state.
In my first job out of college, we had weekly meetings every Monday morning, and they must include breakfast tacos. One new employee moved down to Texas from Canada and thought we were pulling her leg when we said we were having tacos for breakfast. She quickly found out that we were very serious, and she grew to love breakfast tacos and tacos of all kinds.
It seems to be universal here. Everyone loves tacos! Everything tastes better in a corn or flour tortilla.
Fall always seems like the busiest time of year for us. Work picks up to a frantic pace, everyone I know is busy with work, school activities, and a lot gets done during this time of year. Of course, that means there is less time for other routine things, like cooking dinner.
That is why the crockpot, or slow cooker, is such a lifesaver this time of year. You can throw all the ingredients in the crockpot before you leave for work and then come home and have dinner ready. It is one less thing to worry about, one less thing to stress over.
These Crockpot Chicken Tacos are really so easy, they hardly need a recipe.
