This is one of Rachele's FAVORITE crockpot dishes. It is so full of flavor and simple to make. This ropa vieja pairs wonderful with some spicy slaw or cilantro lime cauli rice. This shredded meat is easy to make, yet tastes gourmet AND its rich in flavor, all while staying packed full of fresh veggies and spices.
This is a wonderful way to cook a whole chicken and have it easily ready for salads, tacos or anything else you may need for the week. The chicken falls off of the bone and you can use the leftover bones to make our Immune Boosting Broth. Recipe was adapted from 100 days of Real Food with a few spice additions. You can add any flavor you like to this dish. No liquid is needed in the slow cooker since the chicken will release plenty as it cooks.
