This simple keto crockpot chicken recipe for keto chicken tacos is kid friendly, easy, and dairy free! Low carb and low calorie too!

I’ll admit that ever since getting my Instant Pot, I rarely use my crock-pot anymore. 

Why would I when the Instant Pot gets things done so much faster?

After all, I did write a keto Instant Pot cookbook!


 

But ya know what, the crockpot may be dusty but it is not forgotten!

I recently whipped out my crockpot on a day where I was going to be gone quite a bit to make some keto crockpot chicken tacos.

easy keto crockpot recipe

This keto crockpot recipe was so easy, delicious, and enjoyed by all that I had to share it on the blog!

Whenever I write recipes, I try to use ingredients that you are more than likely going to have on hand. 

Truth be told, oftentimes I make recipes on a whim and challenge myself to use only what I have at the time. 

 

 

I know, I’m a weirdo. But, I’ve brought you many recipes that way!

These keto crockpot chicken tacos are no exception!

You only need a few basic ingredients and a few hours to have a delicious keto taco!

 

 

ingredient substitutions

My keto crockpot chicken taco recipe calls for both a roasted jalapeño and beer

While these aren’t necessarily “weird” ingredients, you may not have them readily on hand or want to use them.


 

If you are gluten free and cannot tolerate the wheat in beer, feel free to substitute the beer with chicken broth.  

The beer ads a wonderful rich flavor to the chicken but if you have a reason for not using it, then by all means, don’t!

As for the roasted jalapeño, it’s really not as spicy as it sounds! In fact, when you cook a jalapeño, they get sweeter!

 

 

I roasted my jalapeño on the grill but you can also do it under your broiler (using a sheet pan) or over a gas stove. Here is a good video to watch if you need a visual!

The goal is to get the skin nice and charred so that you can peel it off and only use the flesh of the pepper. The longer you roast the pepper, the more charred and sweeter it will become.

However, if jalapeños aren’t your jam or if you’re pressed for time, skip this step!

 

This simple keto crockpot chicken recipe for keto chicken tacos is kid friendly, easy, and dairy free! Low carb and low calorie too!

 

how to serve your keto crockpot chicken tacos

If you watched my video, you’ll see I served these keto chicken tacos in lettuce cups! 

I love using whole leaf romaine lettuce to serve keto tacos in because it is delicious, gluten free, and lettuce carbs don’t count!

No, really, lettuce carbs don’t count! At least not in my book!

 

 

If you don’t believe me, go watch this video by Dr. Berg! He is THE MAN when it comes to all things keto. 

But if lettuce cups aren’t your thing, you could totally use a low carb tortilla, though there are rarely gluten free.

Some people also enjoy cheese shells for their tacos. You can find instructions for those on this post (see the recipe card).

Don’t forget to load up your keto chicken tacos with all your favorites: sour cream, guacamole, salsa, or queso!
