Serves: 4 servings


Add the chicken breasts, diced tomatoes and green chilies with their juice, peppers and onions, cumin, salt and pepper to the insert of a slow cooker. Set the slow cooker on high and cook for 4 hours, or on low for 8 hours.
Once the chicken has cooked, drain the liquid and shred the chicken meat with a fork.
Place the shredded chicken into each of the tortillas and add shredded lettuce, a pinch of shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Roll up the tortillas before serving.
