Slow cooker chicken taco bowls- these are so good!


I love delicious taco-style bowls full of cheese, veggies, and TONS of flavor.

They are simple, quick, and really adaptable – you can pile them on salads, in tacos, over rice, or even in a mexican style pasta or enchiladas and burritos!

I recently upped my taco bowl game and started making them in the slow cooker though, and now I might never look back…. especially when these crazy healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Bowls are so quick, simple, and freaking DELICIOUS!

These slow cooker chicken tacos are so delicious!


When I say crazy healthy, I mean these clock in at under 220 calories per serving— really!

Even with all that melty, delicious cheese.

I like to fill my taco meat with zucchini (which sounds super odd- but I promise, it really does take on a meaty flavor when slow cooked with taco seasoning…) which makes it more delicious and cuts down on fat and calories.


This is the most delicious dinner ever - slow cooker chicken tacos!


These Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Bowls also go great over nachos!

Dieting tip: Make this recipe perfectly paleo by omitting the cheese, or vegan by swapping tofu for chicken. Both still taste GREAT!

    1. Becky – it both does or doesn’t. You can chuck it all in – but you will need to open the slow cooker and break it up so it becomes a taco-like crumble (instead of cooking as a solid chunk which can happen), and I’d cook it separately before the veggies or they’d get too soft. Otherwise you can quick sautee the ground chicken (doesn’t have to be cooked through, just browned and crumbled) and then chuck it all in – the chicken will cook through while in the slow cooker.
