Cafe Rio Chicken

 I found this recipe sometime last year and it has been a favorite ever since. We use it for burritos most of the time but when it is made into a salad with the Cafe Rio sauce it is amazing, too! This recipe is a crock pot recipe but I find that it works great on the stove top if you don't have hours to kill. I found this recipe here.

2 lbs chicken breasts
1/2 a small bottle of zesty Italian dressing
1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 pkt ranch dressing mix (mixed with 1/2 cup of water)
1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 Tbsp. ground cumin
Place all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on LOW for about 5 hours or until chicken is done.
Shred with fork and serve in salads, burritos, tacos…etc.
You can also double or triple this to make extras for freezing. Then simply thaw and reheat for a fast and delicious meal.
