Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Bar

Who doesn’t love a good taco bar? You get to choose what you want and using slow cooked chicken taco meat means it is ready when you get home. Prepare your toppings ahead of time and the wait time for dinner will be minimal! If you are following the 21 Day Fix Program 2 Tacos is equal to 1 red, and 1 yellow. Additional containers for toppings are determined by what you put on your tacos.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Meat

Serves 4+

Ingredients:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

¾ cup of your favorite beer

1 Tbsp. chili powder FullSizeRender (1)

1 ½ tsp cumin

½ tsp smoked paparika (there is a difference between smoked and regular so make sure and use the smoked)

¼ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp onion powder

pinch of cayenne pepper

soft corn taco shells

Your favorite taco toppings: sour cream/plain greek yogurt, cheese, black beans, lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, salsa ….

Directions:

Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Mix together the seasoning in a small bowl.

Pour ¾ C of your favorite beer into a separate bowl (you can drink the rest)

Mix 1 ½ Tbsp. of your seasoning mixture into the beer.

Pour beer mixture over the chicken and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4 hours.

IMG_6196When it is done cooking pull apart the chicken using 2 forks so it looks shredded.

Taste and season as needed with additional seasoning mixture. Let cook for 15 more minutes with the lid off before turning off the slow cooker.

Remove meat to a bowl using a slotted spoon.

Set out chicken, bowls of toppings and warm corn tortillas.

Now for the fun part! Create your own tacos with toppings from your taco bar! Use the leftovers for lunch the next day to make a chicken taco salad!

We like to serve Cilantro Lime rice with the tacos for a side dish.

Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight!

I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6’s! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
