Making salsa chicken is probably one of the easiest meals I’ve ever made. It involves two ingredients – chicken breast and your favorite salsa. Doesn’t get much easier than that, right?

If you want to take your chicken salsa one step further, how about turning it into tacos topped with a delicious avocado sauce? The sauce on top takes this chicken salsa to another level.

Ingredients

What you’ll need to make this recipe.

How to make this recipe

1 – Add the chicken breast and jar of salsa to the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

2 – When the chicken is done cooking, remove from the slow cooker. Then, shred it up and add it back to the slow cooker, stirring into the salsa.

3 – Top the tortillas with the chicken and avocado sauce.

For the sauce

1 – Add a large avocado, lime juice, lemon juice, avocado oil, garlic powder, chili powder, water and apple cider vinegar to a blender or food processor.

2 – Blend until sauce is a smooth consistency.

Top your salsa chicken tacos with additional topping, if desired. I also like to top mine with chopped tomatoes and sliced green onions.

What toppings can I put on my tacos?

There are so many great toppings for tacos. Including olives, cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, onions, cilantro, and more. 

How do I store my leftover chicken and sauce?

Store the shredded chicken and the avocado sauce separately. Properly stored in an airtight, cooked chicken will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.  The avocado sauce, placed in an airtight container, will last for 3-4 days in the fridge.
