Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Meat {from Dina}

Dina W shared her favorite chicken taco meat recipe on Facebook

“Chicken breast + taco seasoning + ranch dressing seasoning + rotel = BEST chicken taco meat ever! Homemade seasonings of course!”

Update from Dina…

3-4 frozen chicken breast in the bottom of the slow cooker.
10 oz can Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies (not drained)
2-3 T of Ranch Dressing
2-3 T of Taco Seasoning
Both just liberally sprinkled on top. Cook on low 6-8 hours and then shred the chicken and put it back in the slow cooker to soak the seasonings back up.
We always have tons of leftovers and they reheat so well! I cook some frozen corn, some rice and a little cheese and make burritos out of it on our indoor grill. They are very yummy!

Thanks Dina!

    When I did the packets, I just dumped a whole package in. Now that I make most of my own seasonings I do 2-3 tbsp of each and set it on low for 6-8 hours. Sorry I should have included that information!

    Yes. I do 3-4 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts. It makes fantastic leftovers too! Toss some corn and cooked rice and a little cheese and you have amazing burritos.

    sounds great, thanks for the idea!
    we’ve done salsa chicken(chicken breasts and salsa in the slow cooker), but this sounds like a nice variation!

    It’s so easy it’s easy to miss! πŸ˜€
    It’s 3-4 frozen chicken breast in the bottom of the slow cooker.
    Empty an entire can of Rotel
    2-3 T of Ranch Dressing
    2-3 T of Taco Seasoning (and I use Erin’s versions of both! Very good!)

    I’d love to feature this recipe as part of a round-up of slow cooker chicken tacos for my site Slow Cooker from Scratch. Can you let me know if that is ok.
