  • 1-1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • adobo seasoning, or salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 cup chunky mild or medium salsa
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 ounces from 1 medium haas avocado, sliced
  • lime wedges for squeezing
  • 12 corn tortillas


  • Season the chicken with adobo (or salt), then place in the crock pot and top with garlic powder and cumin.
  • Top chicken with salsa (no water needed).
  • Cover and cook LOW for 4 to 6 hours, until chicken shreds easily.
  • When cooked, drain excess liquid from the pot keeping as much as the tomato sauce as possible and shred with two forks. Cover and keep warm until ready to eat.
  • Make the slaw, combine cabbage, lime juice, cilantro and salt in a bowl and toss.
  • Heat the tortillas about 30 seconds on each side over the flame of your stove until slightly charred, transfer to a plate with a towel on top to keep warm and repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • To serve, place 3 tortillas on each plate, top with chicken, slaw, sliced avocado and serve with lime wedges.
