My love for Tacos will never stop. Never. And these Chicken Lime Tacos that you make in your slow cooker do not disappoint. This has quickly become one of my favorite taco recipes.
I realize that trying to figure out how much chicken to use for this type of recipe can be challenging. The average chicken breast weighs between 6 and 8 ounces so you will need roughly 3 Chicken Breasts for this recipe. Or if you have a kitchen scale as I do, you can dial it in pretty quickly.
Try to resist as much as possible the temptation to open the lid while it's cooking as the slow cooker loses heat. By just opening the lid to stir the contents can make the internal temperature drop by 10°F to 15°F.
When it comes to tacos, some prefer flour tortillas while others prefer corn tortillas. This chicken taco recipe doesn't discriminate so use whatever floats your boat! Personally, I prefer flour tortillas. But what do I know?
When it comes to salsa, use whatever "strength" you prefer. If you don't like spicy food, use mild salsa. Personally, I use a hot salsa because I like my Mexican food to pack a punch!
🌮 How many Tacos per Person
For planning purposes, you should plan for two tacos per person. Each taco will have approximately 2 ounces of meat plus toppings. For reference, one pound of ground beef will yield about 14 ounces once cooked.
If you love Mexican food as I do, you must check out my Mexican Food recipes. My Turkey Tomatillo and Bean Burrito recipe is to die for as is my Slow Cooker Honey Bourbon Chicken Street Tacos recipe. But one of my personal favorite taco recipes to make is my Pork Tacos Al Pastor. If you prefer fish tacos, I suggest you try my Fish Tacos with Green Chili Sauce.
For added flavor, you might want to make a batch of my Pickled Veggie Taco Toppings to go along with these awesome tacos. Or how about some of my Spicy Salsa with tortilla chips to go with these tacos?
