Craving tacos but running short on time? Pop them in the slow cooker and forget about it until the smell fills your kitchen to remind you that Taco Tuesday (on a Thursday) awaits! For beginner weaners who aren't accustom to holding a taco together these can also be altered to make beginner friendly "nachos"!

  • Medium can diced tomatoes
  • Small can green chilies

  • ½ cup chicken broth or ½ cup water + chicken stock
  • ½ cup Queso (homemade or store bought)
