Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Tacos is another family favorite. Yes, I know they are similar to our Crockpot Chicken Tacos except for the packet of ranch seasoning.  You might have seen both of these recipes in our 40 Meals in 4 Hours post.  These are super easy to make and the whole family really does love them.  You can use the shredded chicken in a salad, quesadilla or in Nachos with Shredded Ranch Chicken.

If making this for a freezer meal, just place all the ingredients in a freezer bag and freeze.  Take it out the night before to thaw in the refrigerator and then the next morning just toss it in the slow cooker.  For toppings we use sour cream, cheese, avocado and a squeeze of lime.  For our family of four, including 2 small children this meal feeds us for two meals!

  1. These look so good! I really want to eat one now!!

    • Vicky Vanasperen says:

      what is the pico never heard of it b4

      • Pico is like a fresh salsa – it will be refrigerated 🙂

      • Pico de gallo is a mixture of diced tomatoes, onions, peppers (whichever kind you prefer and how much for heat), cilantro and sometimes lime juice and other seasonings. They sell it fresh at my grocery store. I might have to make a replica recipe for our users that aren’t so lucky, especially with all the seasonal produce coming in!

  2. Only 6 ingredients and 3 steps, there’s no reason any non-cook couldn’t make these. Very nice 🙂

  3. This sounds delicious. We love tacos can’t wait to make. Pinned/shared.

  11. If freezing is there anything special or just toss in freezer bag??

  12. This recipe was a big hit with the family and friends! The flavors were so delightful!! Let me not forget to mention the aromas through the house…wow so welcoming to our guest! This will defiantly make dinner rotations! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I’m always looking for new ways to change up taco night, so I’ll definitely be giving these a try! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  14. Does the time change for fresh chicken breasts? It’s all in the crockpot now…yum, can’t wait! Thanks!

  15. If freezing, do I add the oil and water to the bag or do I wait and add to crock pot once I’m ready to cook it?

    • If it all goes in the slow cooker together put it in the bag. If any ingredient is added after cooking it will say and you shouldn’t add that to freezer bag 😉

  16. Do you freeze it in bag raw?
