Hungry? Chicken Tinga Slow Cooker Tacos

So I've been home a while and just discovered my love for my slow cooker. I've had since I got married, but rarely used it until now.

This a yummy recipe. I love the chipote's smokey flavor!

What you'll need:

Slow Cooker

2-3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 chopped onion
1 can of tomato sauce (15 oz)
1 can of chipotle chile peppers in sauce, seeded and chopped (7 oz)
1 large jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp salt

1 dozen tortillas or tostadas depending on your taste

Add chicken and all of the above ingredients (minus tortillas/tostadas) to the the slow cooker and mix.

Cook on Low until chicken is no longer pink in center, about 2-3 hours.

Remove chicken and shred using two forks.

Return to slow cooker and cook on low for an additional hour.

Now that you are done you can add to your tortillas or tostadas and eat! You can also add a little extra toppings if you like. I like to add sour cream, queso fresco, tomatoes, and a bit of lettuce. I can eat this meal for days. If you want your meal to have more of a spicy kick go ahead and add an additional jalapeño!
