After I shredded the chicken
Before I folded it into a soft taco. With some lime juice it was so yummy!
Chile lime chicken soft tacos
1 4oz can diced green chilies
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
lime juice from 2-3 limes depending on how juicy they are. Mine weren't too juicy so I used 3
4 boneless chicken breasts, thawed if frozen
1 can fat free refried beans, warmed
one batch of homemade tortillas
Toppings such as: shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, salsa, sour cream, sliced olives, guacamole, cilantro, lime wedges
Add chicken and onion to a slow cooker. In a bowl combine green chilies, garlic, chili powder, and lime juice. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred.
Top with hot chicken mixture beans and any other desired toppings.
Homemade Flour Tortillas
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 cup PLUS 2 tablespoons shortnening
3/4 - 1 cup hot water
In a mixer like a kitchenaid fitted with the dough hook, combine flour and salt. Add shortening and combine until crumbly. With the mixer running, slowly add the hot water. Mix until the dough starts to come together from the sides of the bowl. You want the dough to be soft but not too sticky. Heat a large skillet on med-high heat. Take a portion of the dough that will be a small ball in the palm of your hand. Roll the dough ball into a thin circle. Place raw tortilla onto the hot skillet and cook about 1 min on the first side and about 30 seconds on the other side. If they burn too quickly turn your heat down. Place the cooked tortillas on a plate between two paper towels to keep them warm until you serve them. This will make 8-10 tortillas.
