Slow Cooker Pineapple Chipotle Chicken Tacos
This is officially the summer of all things pineapple for me. I’ve been making a ton of new recipes with this sweet fruit so I hope you guys enjoy it too!
I wouldn’t consider pineapple to be in my top favorite fruits. It’s almost too sweet for me sometimes. But, it’s really wonderful in recipes and fresh pineapple juice is such a treat. And, of course, pineapple just screams summer!
It also works really well in sauces…and in this case…mixed with chipotle peppers and poured over chicken in a slow cooker! To make the sauce, you will need a food processor or blender. I did use canned pineapple for this recipe, but you can certainly use fresh pineapple and fresher pineapple juice if you’d prefer too.
Anyway, the sauce is made with pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, fresh lime juice, and some spices. After you blend it up in the food processor, you just pour it over chicken in your slow cooker and let it go!
I highly recommend making some of my Pineapple Mango Salsa to serve with these summery tacos! This is a great recipe for summer Taco Tuesdays or parties where you don’t want to worry about cooking.
