SLOW COOKER CILANTRO LIME CHICKEN TACOS

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Makes: 8 servings
Ingredients:
  • juice from 2 small limes
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 (16 oz) jar salsa (use your favorite; I used a local Texas brand)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning mix (I use low sodium)
  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless, chicken breasts (fresh or frozen)

Directions:

  1. Place chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the top, then extend with salsa, lime juice, and cilantro .
  2. Place lid on top and cook for four hours on high, or 6-7 hours on low-pitched. Remove chicken from crockpot to a separate bowl and shred with two forks. Moisten chicken with small amounts of juice left open from the crockpot until you get the amount of moisture that you like. I utilized about 1/2- 3/4 cup juice .
  3. Serve with taco shells or tortillas, adding on your favorite exceeds. I like to use shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, diced avocado, cheese, sour cream, and even a rain of ranch dressing. Enjoy !
