Directions:
Place chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the top, then cover with salsa, lime juice, and cilantro. Place lid on top and cook for four hours on high, or 6-7 hours on low. Remove chicken from crockpot to a separate bowl and shred with two forks. Moisten chicken with small amounts of juice left over from the crockpot until you get the amount of moisture that you like about 1/2 - 3/4 cup juice. Serve with taco shells or tortillas, adding on your favorite toppings.

Personal Notes:
It's "Taco Tuesday!" What family with kids hasn't browned a couple of pounds of ground beef, ripped open a family size bag of shredded cheddar cheese and warmed up a gazillion taco shells for a quick and fun Tuesday dinner. Gigi loves tacos and this recipe "kicks it up a notch." Sorry, I just channeled my inner Emeril.
