  • 2 medium sweet onions
  • 3 medium carrots

  • 1 hot pepper
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin


  1. Thaw chicken. In a large Crock-Pot® combine the tomato puree and chicken. 
  2. Puree all other ingredients in food processor (this will have to be done in batches in most food processors).

  • Select the type of hot pepper based on heat desired.
  • Serve shredded chicken over rice or on buns.
  • For a lower protein diet decrease portion to 1/2 cup and count as 2 meat choices.
