Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken Street Tacos
Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours in slow cooker
These amazing green-green tacos have just enough spice and just enough flavor punch to have your family begging for more. They call for green chilies and green salsa (salsa verde). Salsa verde is not a spicy salsa, but it is packed with flavor. The green chilies will give the chicken a teeny, tiny bit of spice…but not too much to aggravate your taste buds. Plus, the giant dollop of sour cream will balance (or cancel) out any spice that there may be.
