1/4 tsp salt
pepper to taste
2 cups dry rice
8 oz shredded cheese
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
* Add everything except the rice, cheese and cilantro to the slow cooker along with 1/4 cup of water. Give everything a good stir and make sure the chicken is covered in mixture.
* Put lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
* Near end of cooking time, cook the 2 cups of rice according to package directions.
* After 8 hours of cooking, using 2 forks, pull apart the chicken pieces. (It should be super tender and shred very easily!) Build the ‘taco bowls’ by placing rice on the bottom, make a little well and then fill with the chicken mixture. Top with shredded cheese and chopped cilantro. (and sour cream if desired)
* Enjoy!! Ole!
*** IF you don’t have all of these spices, you can also use a packet of taco seasoning.
