SLOW COOKER SPICY SHREDDED MEXICAN CHICKEN

This month is like an test in what number of lazy dinners I can make. And what number of days in a row I can use my sluggish cooker earlier than really setting it once more into the cabinet. And what number of tacos I can stomach.




Especially that final one. I sold a jumbo-sized bundle of tortillas on the wholesale grocery shop a couple of weeks ago and I’m beginning to discover that it likely would likely have been a bit excessive. Like perhaps within the area of 200 tortillas too many. But you live, you learn, and also you consume a couple of hundred tacos– all of us have had far a lot less delicious problems.

If you’ve been round right right here for a while, you would likely be thinking, “Morgan, this recipe reminds me of these Chicken Tinga Tacos you made a couple of years back,” and you’re right. They’re similar… SUPER similar.  As in “they’re equally sluggish cooked shredded chook smothered in a smoky tomato-chile sauce, that you may use for burritos, enchiladas, nachos, or tacos” similar.

The actuality is that once I began making this Slow Cooker Spicy Shredded Mexican Chicken, I totally meant to make these tinga tacos (just for myself, simply simply due to the fact I had all of these tortillas to make use of up). Or I guess I ought to say that I meant to make anything variety of like them, but with the groceries I had on hand. I took a couple of liberties with the flavors, like increasing the quantity of tomato, blending in some honey, and simplifying the ingredients, but I figured that generally, they’d style fairly a lot the same.

I figured wrong, of course.

They have been undeniably similar, sure, but this recipe deserved its own spot on the blog. This filling felt hearty and substantial, whereas the tinga tacos have been a lot lighter. This time, the liquids shaped extra of a sauce that may be spooned over the shredded chook truly than a flavored broth. The tomato taste was solid and under no circumstances masked via the chipotles or any introduced inventory like within the tacos from before, and it relied on honey and lime juice so as to feature individual truly than an extended record of spices just like the final time.

Yup, it was really a brand new recipe– one which made me joyful to as soon as once more be having tacos for dinner. I’m telling you, I’d consume tacos like these every one day.

So was this Slow Cooker Spicy Shredded Mexican Chicken higher than the final version? Honestly, it’s tough for me to say– they every one have their very own issues going for them. If you desire anything a bit extra filling and saucy, move with this version. If you desire anything that performs extra with spices but is nonetheless light, move with the tinga. Or higher yet, simply make equally and be your individual judge. Double the tacos sounds like a nice plan to me.

Come via and seize some tortillas whereas you’re at it. I’ve got lots to spare.
