  • 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


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