Chile-spiced chicken thighs and hard cider pair up with a crunchy apple salsa for a delicious twist on standard chicken tacos.
If you don’t want to use hard apple cider, you can use regular apple cider. The tacos may be a little sweeter, so maybe use a 1:1 ratio of water and cider.
I love sharp Cheddar with these, but any cheese is nice with the apple salsa. Another great and interesting twist would be to use soft, tangy goat cheese.
Browning the chicken before adding it to the slow cooker adds another layer of flavor, but it isn’t completely necessary. Skip it if you’re pinched for time.
