Happy February! After a long weekend in L.A., I’m back to share one of our new favorite recipes: Shredded Chicken Tacos. During my quest to find easy- to-make meals the whole family will enjoy, I created a shredded chicken crockpot recipe we eat once a week.
When making Shredded Chicken Tacos, there are only a few must-have ingredients. Taco topping preferences differ from person to person, so get creative when assembling.
I love a little dairy free spicy cashew cheese dip and tortilla chip crumbs while my daughters like to add refried beans and shredded cheese. My husband has his favorite taco toppings too, so I always buy a variety.
