Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken Tostadas

Day 16

Really falling behind here….I have the pictures and I have made the meals but oh man I am behind on posting. Anyhow, I have been wanting to make chipotle chicken tostadas for a while now…and I am so glad I did.  The slow cooker cooks this dish to perfection by making the meat super tender and so very flavorful with a touch of spice from the smoky chipotle peppers.  You can adjust the amount of heat by adding as many chilis in adobo sauce as you want. These slow cooker tostadas are so good with fresh cilantro and avocado.  Try them and let me know what you think!
