Crockpot Beer Chicken Tacos with Slaw

We at a lot of tacos when I was a kid. I still eat them as an adult but maybe not as much as I did as a child. While making some tacos I thought I would spice things up and add beer to the tacos. This was certainly not something added to my childhood tacos. Mostly because my parents did not drink beer, nor cooked with beer. I’m not sure how we are related.

I was inspired by this recipe at The Beeroness.

You will need the following ingredients (don’t be scared off by the long list – it’ll be worth it)

For the chicken part:
1 tablespoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons brown sugar
a pinch of cayenne
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1 ½ lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
Tortillas

For the slaw part:
1 cup shredded green cabbage
½ cup red onions thinly sliced
2 jalapenos diced
½ cup sour cream
2 teaspoons of beer

Step 1:
In a bowl mix together the cornstarch, cumin, salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, cayenne, beer and tomato paste. More easily said… everything but the chicken

Step 2:
Cut up the chicken into bite size pieces and place in the crockpot. Add the beer mixture over the top.

Step 3:
Cook on low for 6 hours. Stir at least once. Cook time may vary based on the size of chicken pieces so keep an eye on the chicken so it does not dry out.

The slaw

Step 4:
Moving on to the slaw add all the slaw ingredients to a small bowl and refrigerate until the chicken is ready.

Step 5:
Polish off the rest of your beer while you wait!

Step 6:
About 15 minutes before the 6 hours is up, shred the chicken breasts in the crockpot. Let the chicken sit in the crockpot with the lid off for the last 15 minutes.

Step 7:
Combine and enjoy!

    Yummm sounds delicious Brittany! It makes me laugh that your family don’t drink beer when you’re such a beer expert 😀

    • It is pretty funny! My mom would drink a 1/2 a glass of wine with dinner each night and my dad drinks a bottle of hard apple cider with his dinner. I should probably get some DNA testing done 😉
