    Tacos are often my default “No time to cook” dinners! I either use leftover roasted chicken (doing that this week!) or I use the slow cooker for pork or beef. I am glad to see you used only thighs here – they won’t dry out like breasts will. I love chicken thighs in tacos. This sounds good and easy. I’m sure Joe loves it too.

    @Alta, Yep, thighs are really the best for the slow cooker. Did you notice the great color I got on the tortillas? I always think of you when I toast them…your dry pan works perfectly every time.

    Hugs!

    Since I’m going to be gone this weekend, I should throw something like this together for the boys so they can have quick easy dinners. This looks delicious! I have beans going on my crockpot right now. I love that piece of equipment.

    @Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen), Me too, Sarena! I have 4 CrockPots…a 6 quart, a 5 quart, a 4 quart, & a little dipper. I’m a mess…but I love them.

    I do a very similar crockpot recipe for making the chicken for tacos. It is so easy and flavorful!

    @Alisa Fleming, I agree! Joe loved it, which always makes me happy. It’s great to be able to throw something quick together and not have to worry about flavor.

    These sound great…I was just about to try the Sweet Potato and Black Bean tacos from your cookbook. I am really enjoying it!

    @Kristina Vanni, You’re so sweet to stop by and say hi, Kristina. I’m glad you’re enjoying my book – I take that as a very high compliment coming from you.

    I love the tacos…especially with the carrot & jicima slaw. Have fun!

    Yum! I love tacos so much! Now I really need to head to the Mexican food store in town and get some half decent corn tortillas!

    wow – look at those tacos. Holy cow! They look so yummy. And how ingenious to make them in the slow cooker. Nothing like having dinner made for you :)

    Thanks for the link love, too. That was so kind of you :)

    Have a wonderful week

    I have made this twice so far! First time was just for me and the second time for guests and they loved it! Thanks for sharing. It is so good and easy to make. You are the best!

    @Becca, I think it’s the smoked paprika that makes it so good. We had some earlier this week – and I don’t think anyone would think it came from a CrockPot. :)

    I’m just starting this journey and I love your web site. Mexican is our favorite dinner so we have it quite a lot. My favorite economical way to do chicken is to buy a whole chicken and crock pot it or rotisserie it. We have it for dinner. Then I part out the meat and put it in the fridge. The “throw away” stuff stays in the crock and I add water and cook it for another day. There’s my broth and already cooked chicken for other meals. Chicken soup, chicken tacos, chicken sandwiches….
    Thanks for ALL your great info!!!!

    I made chicken tacos today and my poor shells just feel apart. What a mess,….how do you get your to look so lovely,,,,,maybe I didn’t heat them long enough in the pan. ???

    Amy Reply:

    @Traci Bowman, Did your filling have a lot of liquid? If so, that will soak the tortillas and cause them to break. Or, maybe your tortillas weren’t so fresh.

    Hugs,

    no liquid…and i just bought the corn shells…maybe they were some cheap kind…I don’t know what happened..I think I will just chop them up and make a taco salad! lol

    Amy Reply:

    @Traci Bowman, I used corn tortillas that are soft and then grilled them in a hot, dry pan. My shells weren’t crispy.

    Traci Bowman Reply:

    The next time i made them i let them cook in the pan longer and it worked out much better! They were’t crispy but they weren’t as soggy as the first time either. so i just had to do some adjusting of the cooking time!
    thanks a bunch
