I asked. You responded. Here it is! A new crockpot meal. Crockpot Hatch Chile Chicken Tacos. I love cooking in my crockpot (or slow cooker if I am being technically correct). Some of my favorite crockpot meals include my Spicy Mustard Chicken, Mississippi Roast and Tom Kha Yum Soup. My local Whole Foods recently held a big event where they roasted fresh hatch chiles. I bought a ton and promptly put them in my freezer while I brainstormed ideas. I love hatch chiles and only in the last few years did I discover you could buy them fresh and not in the can. I still use the can version sometimes but the fresh roasted hatch chiles have an amazing flavor! If you can find them at your local grocery store, I definitely recommend stocking up and freezing them for later use.
I love how the fresh roasted hatch chiles bring an extra spice to this dish! A sprinkle of cool cilantro adds a bright bite to pair with the savory and spicy chicken. I modeled this recipe from a family favorite white chicken chili recipe that I thought would make amazing tacos! The 3-ingredient tortillas are from my upcoming ebook, but you can use any paleo tortilla recipe or eat this over cauliflower rice as a taco bowl for Whole30.
Ingredients Directions Notes For whole30, eat as a taco bowl over cauliflower rice.
If you can’t find fresh hatch chiles, you can use the canned variety.
