Crockpot Chicken Taco Stew

The perfect dish for get togethers and pot lucks, it’s become one of my favorite crockpot recipes to make on a Sunday and have left overs for lunch during the week.

🧂 Ingredients

Serve with grated cheddar cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips.

📝 Instructions

It’s super easy to make, you basically just throw everything (except the chicken) in a crockpot and mix it together. Then, lay the chicken on top and cook on high for 4-5 hrs or on low for 6-8 hrs, shred the chicken and serve.

🍜 Variations & Substitutions

  • You can use 1 1/4 packets of taco seasoning in place of the homemade seasoning in the recipe, but we prefer to make our own.
  • For a chunkier stew you can use two 15 oz cans of diced tomatoes with chilies and an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. I don’t really like lots of chunks of tomatoes, so we use one can of the diced tomatoes and a 15 oz can of tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes, whatever we have on hand.

We love that this recipe is so versatile and easy to customize to ones liking without really altering the taste or presentation. It’s always a hit when we make it for a crowd and it never lasts long at home.
