My family loves these tacos. The chicken cooks in the slow cooker, so it’s convenient to throw together before I leave for work. Then we just roll it up in tortillas with the remaining ingredients and dinner’s ready in minutes. —Cheryl Newendorp, Pella, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 pounds), cut up and skin removed
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/4 cups salsa
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • Sour cream, optional

Directions

  1. Place the chicken in a 4-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, chiles, onion, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender and juices run clear, 5-6 hours.
  2. Remove the chicken. Shred meat with 2 forks and return to the slow cooker; heat through. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Top with cheese, salsa, lettuce, tomato and, if desired, sour cream; roll up.
