Mexican Shredded Chicken (for tacos, chimichangas, etc.)

We have found this combination of basic spices to be delicious when added to water with chicken breasts. As the chicken breasts cook, they absorb the flavor and the water evaporates. You are left with very flavorful chicken that is great for use in tacos, burritos, chimichangas, sopes, quesadillas, or any other mexican dish you […]
