  • Yield: 6 + servings 1x


Spicy sweet chipotle chicken tacos cooked in a slow cooker, and topped with sweet pineapple and crisp onion. Perfect for a weeknight meal, game day or just because!


Units Scale
  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 pkg White Flour Tortillas or White Corn Tortillas, charred
  • 1 Whole Pineapple, cubed
  • 1 medium Yellow Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/2 cup Beeyond The Hive Raw Wildflower Honey
  • 1 7 oz can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (3 peppers diced)
  • 23 tsps Adobo Sauce
  • 1 tsp McCormick Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp McCormick Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp McCormick Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick Garlic Salt
  • 1/4 tsp McCormick Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Fresh Lime, quartered


  1. Spice mixture: In a small dish, add all the spices and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Chicken: To a slow cooker, arrange the whole chicken breasts and completely coat both sides of the chicken with the spice mixture. Top with the diced chipotle peppers, sauce and honey.
  3. Cook: Cover and cook on high for 3 – 3 1/2 hours, or cook on low for 6 – 6 1/2 hours.
  4. Shred the chicken: Pull out the chicken and shred with two forks. Then add the meat back to the slow cooker and stir into the juices. (There will be quite a bit of liquid, but once the chicken is shredded and added back in it will be nicely absorbed).
  5. Tortillas: Lightly char the tortillas on medium-low flame of a gas stove, or broil on high in the oven. (*Either way, don’t leave them unattended).
  6. Assemble: Top with onion, pineapple, cilantro and serve with lime wedges.


  • Slow Cooker Times: Whether you cook the meat on low or high, make sure to check the doneness at the 3 hour or 5-6 hour mark. If it is overcooked, it will taste dry and will have lost its bold flavor.
