This recipe for chicken taco meat really couldn’t be any easier.  I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, 6 to be exact, and I put them in the slow cooker.  I then added salsa, chili powder, cumin, lime juice, and salt.

After my Crockpot Chicken Tacos were finished cooking, I pulled them out of the crock pot and put them on a cutting board to cool a bit.  I then poured the leftover juice from the slow cooker into a saucepan and turned it on high.  I brought it to a rolling boil and reduced the liquid for about 15 minutes.

So while the sauce was reducing, I cut my chicken into cubes.  You could also shred it if you like.
