Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Tacos

We love Mexican food at our house. These Slow Cooker Queso Chicken Tacos are a favorite. They are SO easy to make with only 4ingredients and taste great. We make these cheesy chicken tacos at least once a month. The chicken mixture is not only great in tacos but also on top of rice, nachos, baked potatoes or a salad. I love versatile recipes like this one!

How to Make Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken

These Slow Cooker Queso Chicken Tacos are super easy to make. Cook some chicken with taco seasoning and Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles. Shred the chicken and stir in some queso dip. That’s it! SO easy!

I used some Pancho’s cheese dip in this recipe. It is a refrigerated orange Mexican cheese dip. I buy it at Sam’s Club or Walmart. If you can’t find Pancho’s, feel free to use any brand of refrigerated queso dip or a jar of queso dip from the chip aisle.

You can turn this main dish into a dip by adding more cheese dip to the chicken mixture. This would be great poured over nachos or served warm in the crockpot with chips. YUM!

What to Serve with Queso Chicken Tacos

These Slow Cooker Queso Chicken Tacos are a favorite at our house. I’d rather eat these cheesy chicken tacos than go out for Mexican. This makes a lot of chicken, so this is great for a crowd. As I said, this chicken is great in tacos, a burrito bowl, on nachos or a salad for a low-carb/keto option. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these chicken tacos:

  1. Have you ever made this in an instant pot? I just got one for my birthday and am feeling overwhelmed using it.

    1. You should be able to cook this in an instant pot for 5-7minutes. You’ll need to add at least a 1/2 c of water or chicken broth for the liquid. I use my kitchen aid mixer with the paddle to shred my chicken. Then add back to the instant pot on sauté to incorporate the cheese sauce.
