Chicken in the Slow Cooker
June 28, 2013
Tacos? Nachos? On rice? It is your choice. This is a versatile Mexican style family-friendly recipe that will quickly become everyone’s favorite.
I love my local fruit and vegetable shop. Not only do they support local producers as a priority, but they also have almost every ingredient that you can think of on the shelves. I thought I was totally familiar with what they stocked until I spied some Chilpotle Peppers in Abodo Sauce. A chipotle, or chilpotle, is a smoke-dried jalapeno. I added a tin to my shopping basket and set to work in the kitchen not long after. I played around with this recipe a few times until I got the recipe below. It met all of my cravings for warm Winter food:
If you are yet to try chilpotle peppers I highly recommend you give them a try. If you can’t locate them you could use chilli instead. The meal would lack the smoky flavor and have more heat with this substitution but it would still be great. Don’t add too much chilli as the slow cooking will add additional heat.
Have a great weekend.
Have you tried chilpotle peppers? What is your favorite thing to add them to?
