The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken Tacos

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken Tacos

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

I'm always looking for new slow cooker recipes and receive a lot of feedback from readers that you're also looking for more. So I took this Chipotle Chicken Recipe from Homesick Texan and threw it into my slow cooker. Once again, it was great to come home to a delicious dinner.

Making the chipotle sauce means that this recipe takes a little more leg work than just dumping ingredients into your slow cooker, but it's well worth the effort.

Ingredients
3/4 cup chicken broth
1-3/4 cup crushed canned tomatoes
3 chipotles in adobo, plus 2 tablespoons of adobo sauce
1/2 medium yellow onion, cut into large chunks
5 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground all spice
1/4 cup cilantro
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1-1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts
tortila shells, for garnish
tomatillo salsa, for garnish (can make your own or purchase at the store)
avocado for garnish 

Directions
Combine first 13 ingredients (from chicken broth to ground black pepper) in blender and blend into chipotle sauce.

Place chicken in slow cooker and top with chipotle sauce blend. Cook in slow cooker on low for 6 hours.

Serve in tortillas with tomatillo salsa and avocado.

Can the chipotle sauce be made the night before and left in the fridge? Have you tried this?

Sorry for the delay! I thought I had responded, yes you can make the sauce the night before and refrigerate! I haven't tried it, but most likely will next time!
