    Shjya Instance's Note:

    Great addition to practically any Latin American dish- from taquitos to taco salad! You can also use cilantro here, though I prefer parsley.

      Wonderful! I loved the addition of the onions and garlic. I cooked my chicken breasts in the crock pot all day in garlic chicken broth with the onon and peppers. It made for very easy shredding. I made these into tostadas for dinner. Will be making again soon. Thanks so much for posting!
