I've been looking for a good shredded chicken taco recipe for sometime. This is the one. It tastes rich even though it is relatively quick to make. Three things boost the richness. 1.the ancho chili.... I started with a whole dried chili seeded it and ground in my spice grinder 2. Choice of beer. I used an IPA. I'm thinking a stout would be interesting too. 3. Once everything is in the pot Cook it down! Yes it is kind of watery...as some have mentioned.... however if you simmer it at a slight boil with the cover off; stirring occasionally the excess liquid goes away the meat gets more tender and the flavors are amplified...in about 1/2 hour. I used my favorite green enchilada sauce.... Red enchilada sauce would compete with the ancho and the beer and make a confused flavor I think. Read More

I used a rotisserie chicken and it came out delicious. A tasty filling for flour tortillas or crispy shells. Next time I will make sure to cook rice with it as it would make a great taco bowl! Read More

Easy and tasty. Made it in crock pot with three large breasts. Would use 4 next time. Had extra "juice". i used Trader Joe's enchilada sauce. It was done on high for 4 hours. Thanks for a good different version of chicken taco meat! Read More

This was very good. I accidentally put a bit too much beer in and it was a little runny but the taste was delicious. I will be making this again. Read More
