Mexican Pulled Chicken Stuffed Peppers

Mexican Pulled Chicken Stuffed Peppers
I had peppers. I had chicken. I had a million errands to run and wasn’t going to be home most of the day. So I enlisted the help of my crockpot and this recipe came together almost by itself. I topped it with shredded cheese blend of Monterrey jack and cheddar but feel free to use your own blend or eliminate if dairy-free. We served this along with some organic refried beans and it was an amazing, filling dinner! I used a taco seasoning packet – I know GASP – because I was in a hurry and didn’t feel like measuring out my spices which I normally do. What you need: What you do: Put whole chicken breasts and all ingredients in crockpot and stir and set on low for 6-8 hours.

Shredded Pork and Monterey Jack Cheese Enchiladas with Homemade Enchilada Sauce I picked up a pork shoulder at the grocery store recently and decided to make a big batch of shredded pork. I simply seasoned it with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, and coriander. I seared the meat on medium high heat then cooked it low and slow in the oven with some chicken broth, chopped garlic, chopped cilantro, and chopped Anaheim pepper for 6 hours, until it was tender and shredded easily. The pork was so fantastic! It had a wonderful flavor and was really tender and juicy. I used the shredded pork to make enchiladas with a bit of Monterey jack cheese and homemade enchilada sauce.
