These pumpkin flavored tacos are always a hit at parties! Super juicy shredded chicken that’s been slow cooked in pumpkin beer!



2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast

1 packet taco seasoning

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 cup pumpkin beer

Hard taco shells or flour or corn tortilla for serving

For The Sriracha Sauce:

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons milk or cream

2 tablespoons pumpkin puree

1 1/2 teaspoons sriracha

pinch of salt


Add the chicken to a 6-7 quart slow cooker. Mix the taco seasoning, salt, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, pumpkin puree and beer together in a bowl. Pour over the chicken, cover and set on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred with 2 forks. Add the shredded chicken to a bowl and toss it with some of the juices from the slow cooker, just enough to moisten the chicken. Reserve the remaining juice from the slow cooker for heating up any leftover chicken.

Mix the ingredients for the sriracha sauce together in a bowl. Serve along with the tacos for drizzling on top.
