Slow Cooker Honey-Chipotle Chicken Tacos
Honey chipotle chicken, prepared in a slow cooker, makes great tacos when served in flour tortillas with avocado and sour cream. My note -Chipotle peppers in adobe sauce are too hot for my taste, but I like the smokey flavor. I add a tablespoon or two of the sauce and 1 tsp. of smoky paprika for extra flavor without the heat.
