    I made this for dinner and the flavor was amazing! Truly shocked at how great it tasted because it was such a simple and easy recipe to prep.

    Only negative thing I have to say is that it was very difficult to shred. I literally got an arm workout with the bear claws and finally just gave up and used my hands. The moisture returned when I mixed the meat back in the pot with the spices and juices.

    I made this yesterday and it was delicious. Another great, and easy recipe. I’m all about “easy” when it comes to cooking.

  • Jan Cole says:

    Had this the other day, and the flavoring was delish! Will try this with corn tortillas next time just for a change. Will be making this again, this time with a bigger cut of meat! 🙂

    Do I add any liquid to the crockpot at all ?

  • Susan Smeal says:

    Try using your hand mixer ot stand mixer to shred your chicken. Does it in seconds.

    Completely delicious and so easy to prepare. The meat was very well flavoured. I served it in taco shells with all of the fixings.

  • Anne Perry says:

    This was delicious with the chili powder and the cumin cut to 1 teaspoon each (for tender elderly stomachs), but is there a label to print out?
