These delicious Crock-Pot pineapple salsa chicken tacos are one of the easiest dinners! Throw everything in a slow-cooker and let it do it’s thing.
Tacos are my all time favorite food. I just love all the different ways you can customize them. Chicken, shrimp, steak, breakfast, flour tortilla, corn tortilla. Then you throw in all the different topping and sauce options. The varieties are endless. But, when making tacos at home I am always drawn to the easy Crock-Pot chicken tacos. Just throw the chicken in there with some salsa and seasonings and let it cook. These pineapple salsa chicken tacos give the perfect addition of sweetness and tropical flavors.
I used Trader Joe’s pineapple salsa from a jar. But, feel free to use whatever kind you like! Then for toppings I did crumbled Cotija cheese, thin slices of avocado and chopped cilantro. The chicken is so juicy and perfect. You really don’t need a whole lot of toppings with this set up!
