WINNER, winner and chicken dinner!

A big shout out to Kelly, who won the Big Birthday Bash Giveaway!

Congratulations to Kelly, owner of Kiser Krafts  

I SWEAR this was ALL luck and rafflecopter.com, but funny enough - Kelly also shares my birthday - so it is equally fitting that she gets some extra goodies!!! I can't wait to hear how much you love them!

Now... I promised a chicken dinner!

This is such a fun easy dinner, and I thought awesome for Cinco de Mayo!

I take 3-4 chicken breasts  and put in the crockpot with 1 corona, salt and pepper.
(you can use apple juice if kids will be eating) Yes, if you really want a cheat you can use rotisserie chicken from the store or even left overs!

Then when its cooked (about 4 hours on high, 6-8 hours on low depending on your crockpot) I shred the chicken down. (leave in crockpot to soak up juice and keep warm)

I cook off 1 or 2 sweet potatoes (when its cold I chop them in squares and cook this in the oven - but since its warm I just do them whole in the microwave)

Take the peel off and give a light smash to them, add a little honey, and a spoonful of chipolte sauce (from the chipolte and adobo in a can you can find in any grocery, I don't like mine super spicy so I use mostly sauce no pepper, if you like yours hotter, take a pepper out of the can- deseed and cut it up - if you want blow your head off hot, leave the seeds in... and / or add 2)

Mash that in with the sweet potatoe - you don't want it to be like mashed potatos just smashed blended with honey and spice.

Use a tortilla, and place in chicken, then a spread of potatoes, and I like to add a little salsa or sliced avacodos to mine - but my husband likes colesaw (cus his would be with a extra smear of adobo sauce on his wrap)

Serve with margaritas or beer and its a party! This is AWESOME for fun gatherings since it can be served hot or cold, and you can adjust the recipe easily!
