Or just make Mexican food. When I'm in doubt, it is what I do and it always works. Okay, not always. Sometimes Mr. Bell makes "the face" but you know, for most people it always works. What's not to love about Mexican food?
This chicken will work in just about any south of the border type of dish. I served it over black beans and rice. Did my children eat it, you ask? Um, well, sort of.... I told one little Bell it was barbecued chicken (he didn't touch the rice bean combo) and hand picked the black beans out of the other's rice because he said they looked like roly-poly bugs. Really, I would have thought that would make them more desirable to the littlest Bell - that kid has put some majorly disgusting stuff in his mouth. We'll leave it at that.

I think this recipe was on the back of a salsa jar.... Pace maybe?

- Combine all ingredients except lime juice in slow cooker.
- Cook on low 6-8 hours.
- Shred chicken with two forks, add lime.
