5 ingredients and a slow cooker are all you need to make the chicken filling for these creamy, healthy, and delicious tacos!
Happy Friday friends! This is a super fun Friday for me, I’m currently up in Vail, Colorado enjoying a little belated birthday getaway and loving every minute of it. We are staying at the same resort we stayed at on our anniversary last fall, the Vail Cascade Resort. It’s just as beautiful and enjoyable this time as it was in the fall.
I love that we live so close to the mountains and can easily take day trips or weekend trips up to places like Vail without having to do much planning. It only takes a about an hour and half to drive from our house before we’re in some of the great mountain/ski towns. Since it’s the off season for skiing right now and the summer activities haven’t started up yet, you can get some great deals at the resorts in these towns.
We’ll be headed back home later this afternoon to avoid the weekend rush of everyone coming up to the mountains, that’s how we roll in Colorado, we can’t get enough of our gorgeous outdoors! I know when I get home I won’t be in the mood to cook anything, but luckily I have plenty of the delicious chicken I used to make these Creamy Green Chile Chicken Tacos leftover!
I know I usually do pizza on Fridays, but tacos are equally delicious, don’t you think? These chicken tacos are extra awesome because the meat is cooked in your slow cooker, only uses five ingredients, and they’re creamy, but in a non fattening protein filled way thanks to Greek yogurt! The main flavor boost in these tacos comes from the green enchilada sauce. My favorite one to use is Frontera’s. This isn’t a sponsored post, I just absolutely love their products! As if the meat isn’t delicious enough I topped the tacos with some amazing cotija cheese! If you’ve never tried cotija cheese you need to. It’s crumbly and salty like feta, but in a more mild way, and it’s perfect for tacos! Whip up a batch of this super simple creamy green chile chicken this weekend and enjoy these tacos next week for a quick dinner!
