    ms_bold's Note:

    I have adopted this recipe after the dramatic departure of a past member. I have prepared these tacos in the past and liked the balance of flavors. On occasion, I have added partial jars of green salsa that were floating around in the fridge for an additional boost of flavor. The previous intro for this recipe read..."This was inspired by a recipe of Theresa Baker, her shredded chicken tacos, but I took a different spin on it that I was very pleased with, thanks for the inspiration Theresa! I made at least 10 tacos with this and had more meat and tortillas left."

      We thought these had a great flavor, and I especially loved the lime juice. However the corn tortillas were very frustrating and took away from the 5 stars it might have been. I think it would not only be easier, but I think maybe tastier in a flour tortilla. I also added a little monteray jack cheese in the toppings. It sure smelled great the 5 hours it was cooking!

      This smelled wonderful and had a great flavor. And the meat does just fall apart. I halved this since its just me at my house. The first time I made it, I just wrapped the meat in tortillas (I used flour - that's all I had on hand) and didn't add any toppings. The second time I added tomato, salsa and lettuce, and I definitely recommend adding toppings. Tonight I had some of the meat over lettuce as a salad with tomatoes and salsa and it was wonderful like that!

      So easy. The chicken was so tender that it just fell apart. Don't worry about the cilantro- it seems like a lot but it basically "disappears" into the dish after 5 hours, you can hardly see or taste it, the flavors just blend into the chicken which is super moist. Next time I'll use pre-sliced pepperoncinis so that I don't have to worry about picking the stems out. The peppers were pretty mushy anyways, we pushed them aside and ate the chicken, but they did give it a nice flavor! Lots of leftovers from this, can easily make enchiladas or quesadillas the next day.
