One of my favorite easy dishes to make for dinner is black bean chicken tacos.  They are truly so simple to make using your CrockPot.  I like black beans in mine, but they are completely optional.


2 large boneless skinless chicken breast

1 package taco seasoning

1 cup salsa

1 can black beans (optional), rinsed and drained

Place chicken breast in bottom of your crock pot.  Mix the 1 cup of salsa and taco packet together and pour over top of the chicken breast.  Cook on high for 4 hours.

After 4 hours shred your chicken and add your black beans that have been rinsed and drained.  Continue cooking for 2 more hours on high.

If you do not want to add the black beans then just shred the chicken and continue to cook on high for 2 hours.

As always crock pots vary, so make sure you adjust your cooking times as needed.

I have used frozen and fresh chicken when making this and they both turn out great.

Once your chicken is finished you can sever over top of tortillas chips, in a burrito shell or my favorite way is to bake my tortillas in a nonstick tortilla pan which makes the best taco bowls.  I’m not sure of the exact brand I have, as they were a Christmas gift one year, but you can purchase them on Amazon.

Top with any of your favorite tacos toppings.  We like to use cheese, tomato, lettuce and sour cream.  Enjoy!
