I wouldn’t dare to dream of a world without slow cookers. I love mine so much. It just makes life easier ya know? Prep dinner in the morning and it’s ready when you need it. Nights are the craziest time of day in our house, and I’m sure most people can relate. So there’s nothing I love more than having dinner ready to go! Especially when I’ve got hungry kids waiting on me. If you love your slow cooker too, don’t miss these favorites:
This slow cooker chicken tacos recipe is the best because you can use it in so many meals. Pretty much any Mexican related recipe you love, you could add this chicken too (or substitute the meat called for in the recipe and use this chicken instead). Add some to these Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas. Or use it in these Chicken Chimichangas, Chipotle Chicken Wraps, Chicken Taco Pie, Baked Chicken and Spinach Flautas, or any of your favorite burritos, tostadas, or enchiladas.
