Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Tacos
This makes a bunch of chicken, so freeze leftovers in 2 cup portions. The only variation I did was substitute a mexican spice mix called adobo for the cumin and oregano since it has both in it. I have also prepared it (accidentally) without the lime juice and it tastes fine. It is also good without the cilantro, but I LOVE cilantro, so I usually add some.
