We’re taco fanatics at my house.  We make ‘em nearly once a week, or at least some variation {sometimes we’ll get really crazy and make a taco salad ;-) }.  My usual slow cooker method is for these two-ingredient chicken tacos, but since I had some leftover enchilada sauce hanging out in the fridge, I decided to change things up a bit.

I love quick, easy and delicious dinners that involve very little work on my part.

We like to top ours with queso fresco, some pico de gallo, a bit of fresh cilantro, and a drizzle of sour cream mixed with a bit of lime juice and taco seasoning – but feel free to experiment with your favorite flavors!

  1. These look amazing! I have a question about the slow cooker levels. Should this be cooked on Low for 4-6 hours, instead of on High for 4-6 hours? Thanks for the recipe. This will be dinner next week!

    Hi, Ashley. Thanks for this recipe. Looks yummy, and slow-cooker taco meat is my go-to easy dinner. I have a question, though: if I were going to use canned enchilada sauce, would I use a small (10 oz.) can or a big one (28 oz.)? Thanks again. Can’t wait to try this.

  5. Love tacos and love enchiladas so know we will love these! Love any recipe that uses my slow cooker!

  6. This looks so easy and delicious! I’ve bookmarked the recipe to try very soon! I am about 1/3 of the way through a yearlong project to cook and post Weight Watchers friendly recipes on my blog everyday and am always looking for inspiration :-)
