Heat Up Your Valentine’s Day with Spicy Chicken Tacos

spicy chicken tacos recipe

I’m not a chef, not by any means. For this reason, I rely heavily on my slower cooker to turn a few ingredients into a tasty meal without setting off any smoke alarms. I simply throw the stuff in at lunch and let it do its thing. So simple.

There are three rules that recipes must follow in order for me to even attempt them. They have to be healthy, inexpensive and EASY. The easier a recipe is, the less chance we’ll be forced to order pizza that night. This Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Taco recipe fits the bill!

These Chicken Tacos will heat up your Valentine’s Day, but they’re also perfect for those cold winter nights. Great for kids and adults alike, you can cut up the tortilla and serve it taco salad style for the wee ones.

So easy. So delicious! The heat is balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the corn and the cool sour cream, while the crispy tortilla complements the juicy filling quite nicely!
