slow cooker tacos

This slow cooker chicken tacos recipe is insanely two ingredients easy. You pop it in the slow cooker and basically forget about it for the rest of the day.

I learned this recipe from a family I babysat for during college and was fascinated that two chicken breasts and a can of salsa could make such good tacos. I've been making it ever since and am always experimenting with different kinds of salsa.

I eat this either like traditional tacos or I'll put this over some rice and do it burrito bowl style. It's delish ??.

This slow cooker chicken tacos only require two ingredients...not kidding. It's so fast and perfect to put in taco shells or eat over rice.


  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Can of Salsa
  • Optional: 1 Cup Corn
  • Optional: 1 Chopped Onion
  • Sides + Toppings: Tortilla, Rice, Beans, Sour Cream, Cheese, etc.


  1. In your slow cooker, place the chicken breasts down and put the entire can of salsa over top.
  2. Optional: Add in onions and corn.
  3. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
  4. Shred chicken. I like to throw it in my mixer for the easiest shred ever (and no forks scraping the bottom of the dish...yuck!).
  5. ENJOY!


No, seriously, that's it. SO EASY.
