Crock-Pot Buffalo Chicken Tacos

I love buffalo sauce. The classic Buffalo Chicken Wings is by far one of my favorites and one of my daughter’s favorites. Her first taste of a homemade wing was a buffalo wing!

We have tried Crock-Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip (which is a great dip and one that friends will RAVE about) and Buffalo Wings, now it is time to make Crock-Pot Buffalo Chicken Tacos using a shredded buffalo chicken meat cooked in the slow cooker.

Start each taco with a couple heaping spoonfuls of Shredded Buffalo Chicken. Then add in your favorite toppings! Lettuce, cheese, chopped tomatoes and even chopped onions.

You can also use the Shredded Buffalo Chicken in nachos! Or even fill a sub with the meat and top with a little ranch for a Buffalo Chicken Sub Sandwich.

This makes a great freezer make ahead meal. Put the chicken in a gallon ziploc bag. Add in the buffalo sauce and butter pats. Make sure to squeeze all the air out of the bag and seal the bag. Label the bag with the type of recipe and “cook on LOW for 4 hours”. When you are ready to use the freezer meal, remove the bag the night before from the freezer and thaw in a bowl in the refrigerator. Open the bag and dump the ingredients in the slow cooker when you are ready to cook it.
