  • 4 six ounce - boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups 5-Ingredient Salsa Verde
  • 12 ounce can beer - or chicken broth such as Dos Equis
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 corn tortillas cilantro and lime wedges - to serve


  1. Place the first six ingredients in a slow cooker and heat on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.
  2. Shred the chicken with two forks and check for seasoning. Add salt or pepper if needed.
  3. To warm up the tortillas before serving, carefully run them over an open flame using tongs about 3-4 times per side.
  4. Serve with cilantro and lime wedges. Gloria's pickled red onions wouldn't hurt either.
