  • 1.5 pounds chicken breast about 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 1.13 ounce package southwest taco seasoning (I use simply organic)
  • 1 10 ounce can enchilada sauce
  • 1 4.5 ounce can green chilis
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • Juice from 1/2 lime. Save the rest for individual tacos
  • chopped avocado greek yogurt, salsa, lettuce, and mexican cheese


  • Place chicken breasts on the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle seasoning packet over top of the chicken.
  • Pour in enchilada sauce, green chills, and chicken stock. Flip the chicken a couple times to make sure the ingredients are blended and chicken is coated.
  • Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
  • Remove chicken to a medium bowl and shred.
  • Squeeze lime juice over top. Stir in more of the liquid from the slow cooker a little at a time till you get the flavor you want. the liquid also keeps the chicken moist.
  • Serve with some chopped avocado, greek yogurt, lettuce, and mexican cheese


Make ahead instructions
Chicken can be made completely ahead of time and stored in the freezer or refrigerator. Ingredients can also be put together in a freezer kit. Just combine all ingredients in a large ziplock bag and store in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator then proceed with cooking instructions.
