Recipe for Slow Cooker Sour Cream Chicken Taco Filling

I love all the flavors in this recipe for sour cream chicken taco filling.  It's super simple and a family favorite.  I love Mexican food because I love all the fixings that go with it...lime juice, avocado, cheese, sour cream etc. Serve this chicken in tacos, on top of tostadas, in burritos or on nachos or all of the above!

2. Combine onion, peppers, cumin, chili powder, oil and tomato paste in microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 4-5 minutes, stirring every minute until onions are soft. Add in the soup, tapioca, green chile peppers. Pour over the chicken.
3. Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours. Chicken should be to the point where you can easily shred it. Take 2 forks and shred the chicken and then return to the slow cooker or use your standing mixer.

4. Stir in sour cream and then salt and pepper to taste.
5. Serve shredded chicken wrapped up in tortillas as tacos (or however you want to serve it).

  1. This sounds really good and easy! I always love when you can put the chicken in frozen :)

  2. I notice you use the tapioca a lot..do you have to add it? what does it do?
