Creamy Salsa Chicken Tacos

Sharing Is Caring

Who decided tacos were only designated for Tuesday’s? Because I’d like to explain to them that tacos are welcomed and invited every day in my house! AMIRIGHT?



This recipe is so easy that I almost didn’t write it up because it didn’t seem “blog worthy”. But then I thought, Anna, every taco recipe is blog worthy! Duh!

But really, y’all, this recipe couldn’t be any easier! You can make it in the Crock-Pot (RIP Jack) or Instant Pot, whatever floats your boat!

I like to serve this chicken “Chipotle style” with my Mexican Cauliflower Rice, queso, guacamole, and salsa. But it’s just as good in a cheese shell, with a fork, or wrapped in some low carb tortillas!
