What family doesn't love tacos, and what mom doesn't love a good slow cooker recipe? This recipe is the best of both, and as a bonus, calls for less expensive chicken thighs that can withstand hours of slow cooking without losing their texture.

What you'll need

  • 1 can Green chiles, diced
  • 1 jar salsa, (about 12 ounces; mild or spicy to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cumin
  • 1 whole onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Taco shells, flour or corn tortillas depending on taste

How to make it

  1. Place chicken in the bowl of a slow cooker. Top with salsa, diced green chiles, cumin, onion and garlic. Cover and set on low. Cook for 8 hours.

  2. Remove chicken from pot, shred, and return to juices.

  3. Spoon chicken into taco shells, with whatever toppings your family likes. Or use the meat to make burritos, tostadas or as a filling for enchiladas.
