I was unable to find minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce so in place of that I used chilis, cumin, brown sugar & vinegar as listed in the ingrediants list. That is what the NI is counted with.

Arrange onion, celery and carrots in bottom of slow cooker. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and arrange over vegetables.
In a medium bowl, whisk together tomato sauce, lime juice, chipotle chiles with sauce, and garlic. Pour mixture over chicken.

Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours.
