Slow-Cooker Mexican Shredded Chicken

On Cinco de Mayo I posted a Vanilla Bean Banana Muffin recipe that is to die for. But the thing is… banana muffins are not what you would call ‘festive’ for this holiday. Therefore, even though I didn’t have time to get step-by-step photos ready, I thought I should at least post one recipe this week in honor of Cinco de Mayo. {I will try to get a step-by-step for this recipe up soon though!}

Whether you’re having a huge gathering at your house, taking a dish to someone else’s gathering, or just making dinner for your family, then it’s time to make Spicy Pop Pulled Pork.

Some pulled pork recipes take a bit to get together… even the slow cooker ones… but this one is not one of them.

In fact, I would challenge you to see just how fast you can get this in the pot. Next time I make it I’m setting a stopwatch and I plan to keep track so I know if I break my record. It’s just that fast!

The recipe is for cooking it in the oven but I made it in the slow cooker to save on energy and heat… 6 hours with the oven on in the middle of the day means an air conditioner that has to work DOUBLE time… not an option for our budget right now!

Even if you are NOT a Doritos fan, you MUST try these mashed potatoes! The secret ingredient is actually the cheese I use, though the Doritos were a nice touch (easily removed if you don’t want to use them!) My recipe serves 5-8 people and you can make it ahead of time because you finish them off in the oven!

The potatoes are simple and delicious! They are great for bringing to a get-together as you can make them up to 6 hours ahead and then just bake them for 18 to 20 minutes wherever you’re serving them. No re-heating your mashed potatoes or trying to keep them hot in transit!

Here’s the full recipe: Dorito-Topped Mashed Potatoes
