Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Chicken


This super easy recipe creates an extremely tender and juicy pulled chicken. Much like you might find at a Mexican restaurant with peppers and onions. As an addition, I have created this recipe to include corn and black beans. This is great as a taco and enchilada filler, or to be served over rice. This makes quite a bit, so you can try it different ways for variety! A great Friday night recipe to last the weekend! You can serve this topped with lettuce, sour cream, and cheese.

4 servings


  • 4 (5 ounce) frozen skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope taco seasoning mix

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar salsa

  • 1 (12 ounce) package frozen corn

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 large green bell pepper, julienned

  • 1 cup water


  1. Place ingredients in the slow cooker in the following order: chicken, taco seasoning, black beans, salsa, corn, onion, bell pepper, and water.

  2. Cook on Low until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 6 to 8 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  3. Shred chicken with 2 forks.

Cook's Notes:

Canned corn would work as well, just drain and rinse.

You can continue to cook on Low or Warm for a few hours after shredding, or until ready to eat!
