Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Tacos

I’m all in on crockpot recipes. They are lifesavers for busy people everywhere. If you’re looking for some new recipes you can set and forget, you’re in the right place. Here are links to more than 30 of our slow cooker favorites! 

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!

  • Add your desired toppings.

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.) Be sure to try our Homemade Salsa, Pico De Gallo and Guacamole recipes as well!

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.

    I haven’t made this yet, but I am going to tomorrow night. I’m sure my neighbor & I will enjoy it. It just sounds so delicious.

    Everyone loved it and it was so easy to make. I ended up using big flour tortillas to make burritos. I added beans, lettuce, cheese, and sour cream inside with the chicken. And it was delicious.
