  1. Sprinkle chicken with Mexican seasoning and toss to coat.
  2. Place all ingredients, except the lime juice, into your slow cooker and stir to combine.
  3. Cook on low for 4-6 hours until chicken is cooked through.
  4. Once cooked, remove chicken to a plate or chopping board and allow it to rest for 5-10 mins or so before shredding.Once cooked, allow chicken to rest for 10 mins or so before shredding.
  5. When you have shredded your chicken, return it to the slow cooker, add your cheeky squeeze of lime and stir to combine. If you feel like you'd prefer a thicker sauce you could mix 1 teaspoon of arrowroot (or tapioca flour) with 1 Tablespoon of water and add it to the crock pot, stir to combine and allow to sit for 10 mins - this will result in a thicker sauce.
  6. You could use your chicken to make any of your fave Mexican dishes - tacos, nachos, quesadillas, fajitas, burritos, add it to an omelet or frittata or just stuff it into a baked sweet potato, so many delicious options. Enjoy xo
