Spicy Mexican Chicken

I did alot of cooking/baking over the weekend. I love these meals that you can make ahead of time and use in a variety of ways. This next recipe can use beef or chicken.


Spicy Mexican Chicken
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken
(OR 2 lbs. boneless beef chuck)
Salsa
green chiles to taste
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
Cilantro


Chop onions, peppers, cilantro, garlic. Mix in chili powder, cumin & salt.

Pour over meat and top w/ salsa- making sure the meat is well coated.


Cook in the crockpot (with your trusty crockpot liner) on Low for 6 hrs.
Remove meat and shred. Add 1/2 of the cooking juices to the meat.
Use meat with tacos, enchiladas, burritos or quesadillas.

I divide out the meat and freeze it in seperate packages. It makes about 4 meals for Brandon and I.

Great recipe. I may make that this week. We LOVE tacos around here, so that will be good.
