Lime Chicken Tacos

Growing up we never had Mexican food. I never went to a Mexican restaurant or even Taco Bell for that matter. It wasn't until I started dating John 5 years ago that I first tried Mexican. It has been a learning curve for me. When I first started eating it I didn't love the flavors but with time they have grown on me and I like it more. One thing I really like is chicken tacos (but not with ground meat- just regular chicken!) I saw this recipe and immediately knew I wanted to try it. It was awesome. I loved the flavor and it was so easy to make. John was a big fan so I am sure this will make another appearance in our house.

1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 cup corn
1 cup salsa
12 Taco shells, hard or soft
Sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and shredded lettuce, optional

Place the chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine lime juice and chili powder; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until chicken is tender.

Remove chicken; cool slightly. Shred and return to the slow cooker. Stir in corn and salsa. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve in shells with sour cream, cheese and lettuce if desired.
