SPICY CILANTRO CHICKEN


I made this cilantro chicken in the slow cooker and didn't expect it to be as spicy as I thought it would be. I like the spice though, so if you prefer a milder option, just take away the chopped Jalepeno pepper from the recipe. I served this with rice, but I ate it with tortilla chips as a snack later on. It's delicious!

Ingredients: Cooked chicken (pre-shred it yourself), 1 can of tomato sauce, the juice of 2 lemons, a pinch of salt and pepper, 1-2 teaspoons of cumin, a pinch of cayenne pepper, 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning, 1 teaspoon of cajun seasoning, chopped fresh cilantro, 1 finely chopped Jalepeno pepper (optional), 2 tablespoons of olive oil

1/ In a slow cooker, mix the tomato sauce, seasonings, olive oil, and herbs.

2/ Toss in all the shredded chicken into the slow cooker and mix until well-incorporated.

3/ Put lid on slow cooker and cook for at least 40 minutes (you can keep it on until 3-4 hours max). The longer it is kept in the slow cooker, the tastier and more flavorful it will get.

Hi there. I was wondering whether you would like to link this in to Food on Friday: Chillies and other spicy stuff. This is the link . You did some time ago link in a great dish to Food on Friday: Cheese. I now realize that I haven't been following your blog. Sorry about that. I have signed up to follow now. It would be great if you followed Carole's Chatter back. Have a super week.
