Cilantro And Lime Chicken Tacos

Cilantro And Lime Chicken Tacos

Everyone should own a slow cooker. And actually use it! It’s so relaxing to throw a bunch of ingredients in a crock pot and know that once you come back from work, dinner will already be ready. If you work from home, smelling the food cook all day is just as relaxing and maybe even more so since you can smell how good it’s going to taste.

I love trying new slow cooker recipes. This one for Cilantro and Lime Chicken Tacos I adapted from Pip and Ebby. On their blog, they write, “I  have never eaten such tender chicken in my life! I was pretty much able to shred it by just looking at it. And the flavor? Mmmmm, the flavor.”

They’re right. I promise. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite recipes.
