Mexican Style Slow Cooker chickenSubmitted by: RX_2_RV
IntroductionEasy! You can use this to fill tacos, burritos, or as a nacho topping. It's even better the next day. Easy! You can use this to fill tacos, burritos, or as a nacho topping. It's even better the next day.
2 extra large chicken breast, boneless, skinless (about 2.5 lbs total)
1 jar (16 oz) green salsa
1 package of taco mix (add more heat as desired with crushed red pepper)
1/4 cup cilantro, washed and chopped, stems removed
juice from 2 limes (approx 2 Tbsp)
Use low sodium taco mix if possible because the salsa already has a lot of sodium.
Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
Toward the end of cooking time, shred chicken with 2 forks, to desired chunkiness. I like mine very shredded as it incorporates the flavor of the sauce nicely that way.
Use for taco meat, burrito or enchilada filling, or topping nachos.
