For exactly 9203498 years, I have stumbled upon this recipe for 3-Ingredient Crockpot Chicken Tacos (via My Chocolate Therapy) whenever looking for quick dinner ideas. There is something so simple and splendid about her photos. A tortilla. Tender chicken. Guac. Pico. Sour cream.
It's like, forget all the fancy stuff you *think* you should be eating. Set aside the matcha and zoodles. Tuck away the gluten-free eats for another day. Today, we're eating straight up, slutty tacos. And there's not a darn thing stopping us from topping them with all the things we already love.
After 828347 years of saying "one day I'll try those delicious looking tacos", this weekend, I finally gave in. Grabbed the crockpot and went full-boar ahead into trying the Most Famous Crockpot Chicken Tacos on the internet.
And they were ridiculously amazing. Quick, easy and insanely flavorful, with chicken so tender it falls apart once cooked, there was no whining from the kids when this hit the dinner table.
We kept it easy, purchased premade pico from a local grocer. Premade guac. Premade sour cream. (Let's not reread that sentence too closely, since it clearly makes no sense).
5 minutes of prep, ingredients I always have on hand. This one's a keeper.
No wonder it's the most famous Crockpot Chicken Taco recipe on the internet.
