Mita’s Slow Cooker Chicken

This is another one of Mita’s recipes. It’s simple and tasty! You can use this chicken for any of your Mexican dishes that calls for shredded chicken. I usually use it for my chicken tacos. In the shell, I layer a simple coleslaw salad, then the chicken, top with Mexican shredded cheese and home made salsa. That is it and it is perfection!

Slow Cooker Chicken

Ingredients

  • Chicken breasts(I used 3, but should have used 4-it’s never enough for my family)
  • 1 (10 oz.) can of enchilada sauce
  • 1 small can (4.5 oz.) of Ortega chopped green chilies
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. of oregano
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • fajita or taco seasoning (Use as much as you prefer.  You can use the whole packet if you are not using the enchilada sauce.  I usually use the whole can of enchilada sauce and about 1/2 of the taco seasoning.)

Directions

  • Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker
  • Place all other ingredients in the slow cooker
  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours
  • About an hour before it is done remove the cover and stir the ingredients around while shredding the chicken so it mixes with all the juice and seasoning.
  • Cover and cook for the remaining time.

ENJOY!

We all love salsa. It’s spicy, healthy and goes great with chips or on your tacos. I didn’t know how much I really loved salsa until I had this one!

One of my closest friends, Mita, is an amazing cook! She specializes in Indian and Mexican food, but can cook anything. We met when our boys were in preschool together. They moved to Texas, but I miss her so much and her food! I didn’t even know what sriracha was until I met her(I’m not kidding!)

This is her recipe. It is simple, delicious, and healthy. My whole family eats it all up. We have it with chips or alongside any of our favorite Mexican dishes. If you love this recipe, no worries, there will be more of Mita’s recipes to come…
