Interesting recipe for Beer and Chicken Tacos – the filling is made in a slow cooker for 6-8 hours, so you can cook this while at work, and then prepare the tacos when you get home.
Tortillas (corn or flour)
8 Chicken Thighs (skin removed)
1 Medium Brown Onion (cut into 8 wedges)
4 Cloves Garlic
1 12 Ounce Bottle Newcastle Brown Ale (or other darker beer)
1 Lime (juiced)
Green Onions (chopped)
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Add chicken thighs to crock pot (slow cooker)and cover with beer, onion, garlic and lime juice.
Cook in slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.
If bone in thighs were used, remove bones from meat.
Season contents of slow cooker with salt and pepper. Stir to combine all of the ingredients.
Pour a teaspoon of olive oil into a skillet. When hot add 1 tortilla and heat until it starts to crisp up. Then flip over and heat the other side. Repeat with all tortillas. (You can also use olive oil spray to coat the pan.)
Fill the tortilla with chicken and all of the usual accompaniments.
