Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

Tacos are one of the best dishes to serve to your family because they’re so easy to customize to each individual’s personal tastes. Offer up sliced jalapeños for those who prefer something spicier or guac and sour cream for those who enjoy a milder flavor. You provide the base while they do the rest!
