Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos (Aldi-Friendly)

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos (Aldi-Friendly & Gluten Free)

General Notes: Chipotle makes the best tacos, hands down. One of the things I love about their tacos is the meat is cubed instead of shredded. For some reason I like the texture better. So that’s what I did with this taco recipe. Also, I intended to put in a packet of taco seasoning, but I forgot. Oooops. Turns out, these were great without the seasoning! The flavor of the salsa cooking with the meat gave it it just the right about of kick! I wouldn’t say this is a Chipotle Copycat, but it definitely gave me a lot of the same happy food feelings I get when I eat there!

Aldi-Friendly: All the ingredients listed can be found at Aldi! You can probably find a similar salsa at other stores if you don’t have an Aldi near you.

Gluten-Free Directions: Use corn tortillas or serve over rice to make this meal 100% gluten-free!

Freezer Directions: This is a great freezer-dump meal. Put chicken, salsa and corn into a gallon zip-lock bag and freeze (Chicken last, you want the chicken to be first when you pour into the slow-cooker.) Defrost in the fridge 24-48 hours before serving day and dump into the slow-cooker.

Kid Approval: 100% Kid approved! My 5 and 2 year old boys love tacos.
