Cilantro Lime Chicken Taco Filling

Over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with different recipes for my slow cooker and my favourite one is for a delicious taco filling.

Using Salsa, Cilantro, Chicken and a few other ingredients you can make a delicious taco filling over night or while you work. The meat is extremely tender and you can easily shred it with a fork. All that’s needed once this is done are shells, and other taco condiments.


  • One 24-ounce jar salsa
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • One 1.25-oz. package taco seasoning (i make my own with some cumin, smoked paprika, salt & chilli)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (remove seeds to adjust heat level)
  • 1/4 cup of Green Peppers, chopped
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 4 chicken breasts


  • Chop cilantro
  • Chop jalapeno peppers
  • Chop green peppers
  • Juice Lime
  • Add ingredients to slow cooker

Cook on low for 6 hours. Shred with fork.
