Hatch Green Chili Chicken Tacos

Ok Yall, I made this recipe up the other day.
It is THE EASIEST thing I have ever made that taste this Amazing!  My 6 year old son goes crazy for this - which I find quite shocking!  But if you blink you will miss it so Are you ready for this?

1.Get out your Crock Pot (that you got for a gift when you were married umpteen years ago - mine is 12 years old and looks so dated, but Hey it's a crock pot - they weren't pretty yet when I got married)!

2. Place Frozen Chicken breast, or Tenders in the bottom. - 4-5 Breast or about 10 tenderloins. (This last round for me was 5 tenders and 3 breast - whatever ratio you can fit in there!)

 3.Pour over the top Hatch Green Chili Enchilada Sauce *I do a couple cans at least!

4. Also open a Large can of chopped green chili's and pour over the top.

5. Sprinkle Garlic Powder and Cumin Powder on the top.

6. Stir it up. Put the lid on the Crock Pot, and Cook it on low for hours and hours!
I put it on LATE at night right before I crawl into bed, or in the Early morning (but if I do it in the morning -  I do it on High and just turn it down to low later on in the afternoon.  This allows the chicken to literally fall apart and the enchilada sauce to cook down, and the flavors to intensify.

I serve this as I would taco meat, with cheese and sour cream as toppings, - but this is really a jumping off point.  This could be the base of an Amazing soup, Enchilada's, etc.... The possibilities are endless.
Dont over complicate it - This meat will do the talking for itself!


  1. Tried this and it was Awesome! My whole family loved it!

  2. We had this tonight with guacamole, tomatoes, black beans and cheese. It was AWESOME!!!! Thanks for the recipe.

  3. I made these the first time following the recipe exactly and it is way too soupy to put on a taco shell. I made them today with only half a can of green chile sauce and still very soupy. They taste good but it's not really made for a taco shell. Any suggestions?

  4. We strain our meat and use the broth for soup! Pour it over rice if you eat it in a rice bowl... the options are endless!
