5 Boneless chicken breasts
1/2 can Chipotles in adobo sauce

1 tsp Cumin Powder
1 clove crushed Garlic
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Kosher Salt
Are you looking for a authentic tasting Mexican recipe, that is sure to knock the socks off. Well look no further, we make this in our house pretty often and it’s absolutely AMAZING! Plus there really is nothing to it, you just need a few chicken breasts, some Mexican chilies in adobo sauce (see can picture below) and a few spices. Then you and whoever is lucky enough to be dining with you will be saying Sabroso = Tasty! And please don’t let the time frame scare you, this is all done in the crock pot so you’re just going to prep it and forget it until later. Now this is a spicy recipe, so if you can’t handle the heat then please get out of my kitchen! Sorry that is not very nice of me, but I do love spice and so I have to be honest with you.
This recipe calls for 4 whole chicken breasts, so if you’re wanting to feed a larger crowd then simply add in more. Once cooked, shred the chicken, warm your tortillas and simply fill with rice and some guacamole or better yet make some cabbage pico de gallo, see my recipe here for Pico De Gallo and use this as a filling. I really hope you give it a go and let me know how you liked it.
To make the Slow Cooker Mexican Chipotle Fajitas:
- In your food processor puree 1/2 can of your Chipotles in Adobo sauce.
- Then dice up 4 chicken breasts, and place in your crock pot and set to brown, add in 1 tsp of cooking oil and brown lightly.
- Once your chicken is browned lightly, add in your chopped tomatoes, onion, garlic and spices.
- Then add in your pureed Chipotles in Adobo sauce.
- Follow cooking instructions below.
- Once cooked, shred in your pot with a fork.
- Serve in warm tortilla shells and add in guacamole or better yet pico de gallo, see recipe above or below.
Pressure cooker: READ your units instructions mine says 10 mins for chicken.
Slow cooker: 5 hours on low
Stove Top: Simmer covered on low heat for 3 hours.
These are what Mexican Chipotles look like
This is what you will be looking for, same stuff just in a can with some sauce.
Note: If you want less sauce, remove the seeds from the tomatoes. Want more heat add the whole can of chiles in adobo sauce
