Creamy Chicken Tacos are not like your typical make-at-home tacos. The chicken is super creamy, a touch spicy, and super flavorful. You’ll love this chicken all nestled in a tortilla and topped with your favorite toppings. Your family will beg for these tacos every Taco Tuesday!
Ingredients for Creamy Chicken Tacos
Now, I do not claim this recipe is authentic Mexican food. It’s definitely a super Americanized version of tacos, but that does not change the fact that it is so dang delicious.
This three-ingredient chicken ends up surprisingly flavorful and delicious, thanks to the cream cheese. You might not suspect that this ingredient would be perfect for tacos, but it is.
I usually have cream cheese in my fridge, since I love it so much, and I usually have a jar of salsa hiding in the back of my pantry too. If I have these two things on hand, I know what I’m making for dinner!
- chicken breasts
- cream cheese
- salsa (you can use any variety or brand of salsa)
- tortillas (I like to use flour tortillas, but you could use corn as well)
- Toppings like shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, cilantro, lime wedges, avocado, more salsa
How to Make Creamy Chicken Tacos
This recipe could not be easier. All you have to do is add the chicken, cubed cream cheese, and salsa to a greased slow cooker and cook on LOW for 6 hours or HIGH for 4 hours.
Serve the chicken in tortillas and top with your favorite toppings. You could also use this chicken in burritos. This would also be great in burrito bowls over rice and canned beans.
