Instructions
  1. Add the first 9 ingredients in a slow cooker: chicken, broth, onion, garlic, chipotle, cumin, black pepper, chili powder, and salt. Add lime juice if preferred. Gently toss to combine.
  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours until the chicken is completely tender and shreds easily with a fork. If you prefer that the chicken be more crispy, you can transfer the meat into a baking pan, pour the juice on top and broil for 5-10 minutes. We skip this step.
  3. Serve on tacos, burritos, salads, rice, etc.
  4. Crush the Chedz sticks into fine crumbs using a rolling pin, Magic Bullet or food processor. Sprinkle to taste for an extra cheesy crunch.
  5. Garnish with cilantro if preferred.
Recipe Notes

The chicken can be refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 3 days, or frozen in a sealed container for up to 3 months.
