We are well within the midst of a hectic Baseball and Softball season in this household. We literally get home at close to 8pm 2-3 times a week. I know all you Baseball mamas out there can relate! Therefore I have been making a lot of crockpot meals so dinner is literally ready when we walk in the door. Now I would prefer to not eat dinner that late but it is better than the alternative of fast food.
These chicken tacos are fabulous! The chicken shreds perfectly and you can control the spice/heat of the sauce by adjusting the amount of chipotle peppers you add in. I like a bit more spice in my dishes so I keep a cute little bowl with extra adobo sauce nearby if I want to add more heat.
Adding thin slices of radish to the taco rounds out the heat with a crisp cool bite of tang, and the avocado cilantro sauce. OMG do not even get me started on that! Creamy Greek yogurt and avocado blended with garlic and cilantro, it is the perfect accompaniment to the fiery chipotle chicken.
So get those slow cookers ready and try these tacos out immediately!
- 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
- 1 Can Red Enchilada Sauce
- 1 Packet Taco Seasoning
- 1 Chipotle pepper chopped (I use canned chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce found in your grocers international food aisle)
- Radish (thinly sliced)
- Cilantro for garnish
- Cotija Cheese (crumbled)
- Tortillas of your choice (I prefer to use 8 in flour tortillas)
Avocado Cilantro Sauce Ingredients:
- 1 Avocado
- ½ Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 Garlic Clove
- Handful of Cilantro
- ½ Cup of water (add more as necessary to thin up the sauce to desired consistency)
In a slow cooker place the chicken breasts on the bottom and pour red enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle taco seasoning over sauce and chicken, mix. Add in chopped Chipotle Pepper.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours
Shred chicken in crock pot.
In a flat grill pan on medium to low heat warm up the taco shells.
Just before serving place the avocado (minus skin and seed), Greek yogurt, garlic, cilantro and water in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. You may need to add more water to get it to a desired consistency for the tacos.
Assemble tacos as desired and drizzle with avocado cilantro sauce.
