Easy Mexican Chicken

This is SO easy and SO delicious - I'm really excited to share this with you.  It comes to us from CrossFit Peachtree - and it requires a crock pot.  It was cooking all day and all I could think of as I was smelling it was how great it would taste with tortilla chips.  But when we ate it, we didn't even miss them - this is amazingly delicious.

For four + servings you will need:

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 -24 oz jar of picante sauce (we like Pace and it is all natural)
1 bag of spinach
2 avocados
a handful a cilantro
2 limes
2 Tbsp olive oil

Step 1:
Cut the chicken into small pieces and place in crock pot.  Cover with entire jar of picante.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Step 2:
Juice the limes.  Place spinach in a serving bowl.  Toss with cilantro, lime juice and olive oil.

Step 3:  Remove chicken from crock pot and shred with two forks.  Place back into crock pot and stir.

Place spinach on plates.  Top with sliced avocado.

Top with chicken mixture.  If you eat cheese, top with Mexican blend of cheeses.  Enjoy!
