A taco bar with all the fixins including this easy Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken recipe was the star of this make your own taco bar.
How is he already ONE?!?!
My sweet, spoiled grandson has me wrapped around his finger.
So of course I was going all out with the food for his first birthday party.
He loves the movie Coco, so that’s the theme my daughter went with.
And an adorable movie too by the way!
I ordered these adorable Coco themed cookies as well to go along with our Mexican themed party food.
Everyone loved them so much!
How to Make Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken
This dish is great to feed a crowd and could not be simpler.
Two pounds of chicken go into the slow cooker first.
Then season with kosher salt and pepper.
Next goes half a jar of salsa verde and half a jar of queso.
Keep the remaining salsa and queso to enjoy with chips as you enjoy the chicken tacos.
Turn the slow cooker on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Walk away and let the slow cooker work it’s magic 🙂
It will be all bubbly and smells amazing!
Next use two forks to shred the chicken right in the slow cooker.
It only takes a few minutes and will be perfectly shredded for tacos.
We went with soft tortillas for our tacos.
Put the chicken in first and then load it up with your favorite taco toppings.
I kept mine simple with just hot sauce, lettuce, and cheese.
The Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken was a hit at the party and a definite do-again very soon!
