Crock Pot Cheddar Beer Chicken Tacos

Happy Taco Tuesday! Being the beer lover that I am, it's surprising that I don't make these tacos more often. It's one of my husbands favorite recipes but it's been years since I've made them. That is, until today. Cheddar, Beer, Chicken, and Tacos? Yes, Please! You can't go wrong when you combine these ingredients to make one tasty and unique taco!

Crock Pot Cheddar Beer Chicken Tacos
Makes 10 Tacos
WW PP=3 Per Taco
Cal 136, Fat 4g, Carbs 11g, Fiber 1g, Protein 10.9g

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup beer (I used New Glarus Moon Man Pale Ale)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons pepper
3/4 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese (I used reduced fat sharp cheddar)
10 taco shells
Additional toppings of you choice (sour cream, onions, black beans, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato etc.)

In a bowl, mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic, onion, paprika, salt and pepper.

Measure out one cup of your favorite beer, and whisk the seasonings into the beer.

Place chicken in the crock pot and pour in beer with seasoning. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

Remove the lid, and shred chicken using two forks or kitchen tongs then let sit in the crock pot for another 15 minutes or so. Turn the crock pot off, and right before serving toss in cheddar cheese. Once combined, transfer the chicken to a large bowl and assemble your tacos. Enjoy!
