Slow cooked Chicken cooked in lime juice, guaillo and habanero falls apart with the touch of a fork and is perfect for tortillas, enchiladas, tostadas and empanadas.
There's nothing like the taste of an earthy pulled chicken to stuff a taco, enchilada, empanada or top a tostada! My boys simply love to prepare their own meals and snacks when I'm not around and every time I make a batch of this it disappears before I can say Jack Robinson, or should I say Jesus Gonsalves?


Boneless chicken thigh 1 Pound
Lime juice 1 ((Juice of one lime))
Garlic cloves 6 , crushed
Mexican chili powder/Red chili powder/ smoked paprika 3 Teaspoon
Salt and pepper To Taste
