You’ll need a great crock pot for this chipotle chicken soft tacos recipe.  

I currently have 3 crock pots.  I know that this might sound like too many but I have 8 kids so I need a lot of crock pots as I make large dinners.

However, out of all of these, the Ninja crock pot is my current favorite.  I cannot recommend it enough!

The stove top feature is the best quality of this slow cooker.  This option allows you to brown the meat in the same crock pot that you’ll slow cook the food in as well.  It makes cooking my favorite crock pot meals even easier.

My sister has a different Ninja slow cooker than mine.  It is slightly less expensive but doesn’t have all the same features that mine does.  However, it does have the cooktop feature (which we both love).  She recommends her as well.

You can’t go wrong with either of these crock pots. Also, the remove-able insert on both of these slow cookers makes clean-up a breeze!   The insert is non-stick so it’s easier to clean than a traditional crock pot.

This is another crockpot that I currently own.  Being able to lock the lid down is the best feature on this slow cooker.  I use this slow cooker for when I have to bring food somewhere so I don’t have to worry about anything spilling in the car.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day.  The programmable feature allows me to come home to a nice meal ready for dinner after I have been gone all day.

Now that you’re prepared with the best slow cooker, let’s continue on how to make these amazing crockpot chicken tacos.

What are Chipotle Peppers that are needed for these chipotle chicken tacos?

A chipotle pepper is a Chile pepper that has been smoked dried and is usually used in Mexican food.  I think that their spice is similar to the spice from a jalapeño but it also adds a great smoky flavor to the recipe as well.

What is adobo?

Adobo means a few different things but for this recipe we are referring to the adobo sauce that the chipotle peppers are stored in when you buy them in a can.   Some refer to this sauce as a marinade for the chipotle peppers.

The sauce is a darker red color and is generally made from a combination of chili powder, vinegar, sugar, garlic and herbs.  Since the chipotle peppers are soaking in this sauce, this provides the sauce with a smoky flavor as well.

How do you make chipotle chicken slow cooker recipe?

Combine the adobe sauce, chipotle peppers, ancho chili powder, olive oil, cumin, dried oregano, fresh lime juice, onion and garlic in a food processor or blender of your choice.  Then blend until these ingredients are smooth.

After that, put the chicken and the chipotle sauce you just created in the crock pot.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.  However, you can also cook it for 4 hours on high if you need it to be ready quicker.

After it has slow cooked, remove the chicken and shred with 2 forks.  Then return the shredded chicken to the crock pot and mix with the sauce and serve on the corn tortillas topped with the chopped cilantro and avocados.
