Costa Vida Chicken

Cafe Rio and Costa Vida are two of my all time favorite, would eat there every day restaurants. I love the homemade version of the Cafe Rio pork but honestly every time I go I get either the Chicken Salad or the Tortilla soup. I tried Leigh Anne's recipe and it was delicious. We used it first on salads and then in tacos. It was so fast and easy, used only a handful of ingredients, and your crock pot does all the work! A great way to change up taco night at our house!

Costa Vida Chicken
Leigh Anne

1 small bottle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
1 Tbsp. each of Cumin and Chili Powder
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 boneless skinless chicken breasts

This recipe can easily be halved but I took Leigh Anne suggestion and froze half for later.

Cook all ingredients in crock pot on high for 4 hours. Shred chicken and cook 1 additional hour. Serve.
