How to make Crockpot Chicken Tacos
The original recipe is called slow cooker black bean chicken tacos recipe by the SkinnyTaste. I only added a can of tomato sauce to the recipe other wise the entire recipe is the same, with the exception that I used shredded lettuce instead of cabbage.
This recipe is super easy and yummy. Not only did we have the meat in the tacos, some with beans in the taco, some tacos without. I made rice, served the beans over the rice which almost tasted like a chili. Double yum! Sammie loved this recipe so much she ate up all the left overs after school, and Saturday for breakfast. I was like really Sam? Yes, its that good I can’t wait until lunch. Just saying, you won’t have trouble having this disappear.
