Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Tacos

There are several brands of slow cookers, but the one we’re all most familiar with is the good old Crockpot. Even though the slow cooker was patented all the way back in 1936, it continues to be a staple in kitchens everywhere. In 2002, more than 80% of homes in the U.S. own at least one Crockpot!

What’s not to love? You put ingredients in a pot, plug it in, walk away, and at supper, you take off the lid and eat. Are you kidding me? As far as I’m concerned, it’s one of the world’s great inventions!

Slow Cooker Ranch Tacos are so easy to make, it’s ridiculous.

Put your chicken breasts on the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix. Pour chicken broth over the ingredients. End of story.

How long will it take you to do that? Five minutes, maybe? Honestly, it’ll take you longer to chop up some toppings for the tacos. (Onions, peppers, lettuce, etc.)

Make clean-up a breeze.

Thank heavens there are slow cooker liners you can buy that make cleaning up the crockpot much, much easier. I can’t live without them. They are inexpensive and a huge time saver.

If you didn’t have a liner, there is another way to make cleaning a slow cooker easier.

Fill it with hot, soapy water and turn it on low for an hour or so. You should be able to empty it, wipe it down, give it a good rinse, and be done with it. If there are some stubborn spots that didn’t come off, you can give those a little extra TLC.
