Slow Cooker Tacos
  • For slow cooker:
  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or lean steak, or a combo of both, cut into large pieces (don't need to dice)
  • 1 red onion (white will also do, but red is more mild), diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 2 cups water, (The water is included simply to make the meat very tender and fall apart.)
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • To make tacos:
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes or salsa
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 8 or more whole wheat flour tortillas or corn tortillas (gluten-free!)
  1. Dump all slow cooker ingredients in and set on high for 4 hours, or on low for 8.
  2. One hour before it's done, whip up some homemade guacamole and enjoy with tortilla chips.
  3. Once it is done, remove just the chicken from the cooker, being careful to leave the water behind so it doesn't make the tacos soggy.
  4. Spoon the meat and condiments into your taco.
  5. Eat and think of a mariachi band, the beach, and a margarita in your hand!
