chicken tacos


  • 4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 packet/a few tablespoons of seasoning (your choice: we’ve tried taco, fajita, BBQ spices, tandoori – use your imagination!)
  • tortilla wraps or taco shells
  • sour cream, salsa, cheese, and whatever else you want to add – I love avocado, red pepper & some lime for garnish


  • In the slow cooker, combine the beans, corn, chicken, and seasoning.
  • After a couple of hours, chop up the chicken (kitchen scissors right in the slow cooker is the easiest way, just be careful not to scrape your pot).
  • Let it cook on low until you’re ready to eat.
  • You can enjoy the chicken as is, maybe mixed with some rice or scooped up with tortilla chips.
  • You can also wrap it up with sour cream, salsa, shredded cheese, and whatever other toppings your family enjoys.

This recipe feeds our family of five for two meals. It’s a hit in the winter and the summer, and easily works as the basis of a chicken casserole, too.

Grab a few of the items on sale and this is easily a $5 dinner.

It’s also a perfect recipe to prep in bulk in freezer bags, ready for the slow cooker when you need it. Place the chicken, beans, corn, and seasoning together in a bag and freeze until needed. A great deal on chicken and you can load up the freezer with deliciousness!
