Our mini-vacation is over, summer school has started and the heat has come. Bring on the slow cooker recipes! The slow cooker seriously rescues me. I reach for my slow cooker when meal planning throughout the year but, especially in the summer. Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos is hands down one of Sammie’s favorites. And mine because it’s one of our easy crockpot recipes. Do you love slow cooker meals?

Here are a few reasons why I love cooking in them so much. Usually, the prep time is super short for the recipes. I can prep the dinner before the heat of the day. Even prep the garnishes and some sides if I wanted to. Start the slow cooker and it’s ready by dinner time. Cleanups are easy too. Win/win! I’ve made slow cooker tacos for quite a while and adapted my recipe several times. I think I finally found the perfect combination. The bonus is you can use the leftovers in a soup, quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas or other meals listed later in the post.
