I just have to tell you I LOVE Mexican Food!!! The town I live in is rich with Mexican culture, so I get to enjoy authentic Mexican Cuisine as much as I want to.  Now this dish may not be what you would call an authentic Mexican dish, but hey I’m counting it as one! Nonetheless, it is so delicious!

You put it in the crock pot and it is ready when you get home.  I will let you in on a secret! Shh don’t tell anyone this! I put the chicken in frozen. This way it doesn’t dry out!  It would never be because I forget to take the chicken out (No not I). But really it turns out perfect this way!

Ways to serve this dish

Are your taste buds a droolin’ yet? One more idea – Pile this yummy shredded chicken on a taco or tostada shell with all your favorite fixings and you have dinner done! Sky’s the limit with this recipe!

How to Easily Shred Chicken

  • Shred by using two forks and pull in opposite directions. The chicken will be tender and easily pull apart. This also allows for larger chunks of chicken, if desired.
  • Use a hand mixer and turn on on low setting and shred. 
  • Place in a stand mixer and set to 2 and shred with the paddle attachment.
