Do you like to host game day parties? Regardless of who is playing, game day is a great excuse to try new recipes! And we have a new one for you that’s made in a slow cooker, packs a little heat and serves a crowd. Plus, it’s versatile! Think tacos, wraps and nachos. I’ve made these Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos a number of times so I can tell you, they’re tried and true and sure to become a favorite!
From start to finish, you need to give yourself about 5 hours before you plan to serve it. No pre-cooking or browning is required. Just add the chicken, onion, garlic, fresh jalapeños, bouillon and tomato sauce to the slow cooker. Cook for approximately 4 hours or until tender. Shred the chicken, add a can of black beans and continue to cook for an additional 30 minutes. The recipe serves 5, but you can double the ingredients if your slow cooker can handle the volume. Then you can serve a crowd, or have plenty of leftovers.
To make it easier on you, set up a self-serve station for your guests. Next to the slow cooker, set out plates, napkins and utensils and toppings (like shredded lettuce, fresh cilantro, sliced jalapeños, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, guacamole and lime wedges). Offer tortillas for tacos or wraps and baked tortilla chips for nachos.
Let’s take a look at the ingredients.
Ingredients for 5 servings (2 tacos each):
- 1 ¼ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 jalapeños, seeded and diced
- 1 tablespoon MAGGI® Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon OR 1 tablet MAGGI® Chicken Flavor Bouillon, dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
- ½ cup tomato sauce
- 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
- 10 corn tortillas
- Toppings of your choice: cilantro, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole
PLACE chicken in 5-quart slow cooker. Add onion, garlic, jalapeños, bouillon mixture and tomato sauce.
STIR to combine; cover. Cook on low setting for 4 hours or until chicken is tender.
SHRED with a fork.
STIR in black beans. Cover and cook for an additional 30 minutes.
So easy! This is what it looks like when done.
SERVE warm in corn tortillas with toppings of your choice.
Or…make a wrap!
