Slow Cooker Tacos Verde

I swear I can never have enough slow cooker recipes for any type of Mexican dish.  My family loves them and there are so many different flavor combinations.  This Slow Cooker Tacos Verde is made with chicken thigh and salsa verde!  You can always substitute chicken breasts if you prefer.

This meat was flavorful and moist.  The other great thing with this recipe is you can use the meat in any Mexican dish you like – enchiladas, burritos, tostadas, nachos, etc.  I used the leftovers in a quesadilla which was equally delish.
