Chile Lime Cilantro Crockpot Chicken

I'm in the midst of trying to save money.
Actually, I haven't shopped for myself in a month, which if you know me is all kinds of amazing. I looooove to shop, and I really really love pretty clothing. Honestly, my Anthropologie/Madewell shopping addiction started to get a little out of control and I decided to cut myself off for awhile.
(Depressing, I know.)

I also quickly realized that going out to eat each day was killing my attempts at saving money (oh growing up....) so I've been making a big effort to cook more.

My friend Anna told me about this recipe for chile lime cilantro crockpot chicken and it was so so good.
This is serious business now, Nadav told me this chicken was the best thing I have ever made
(and he wasn't lying hehe) 






24 ounce jar medium salsa
Juice from one lime
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1.25 package taco seasoning
2 jalapeno peppers, finally chopped (optional)
6 boneless chicken breast halves, defrosted

In a slow cooker, mix together the salsa, lime juice, cilantro, taco seasoning, and jalapenos. Add the chicken and coat with salsa mixture. Allow the chicken to cook, covered, in the slow cooker on low setting for 6 hours. Serve chicken with salsa mixture spooned over top, or shred and use as a taco filling.

I served the chicken with a warm flour tortilla, brown rice, and lots of avocado. I pretty much think that avocado makes almost everything yummier.

I've been eating avocado every day this week so far, and I was just thinking yesterday that it absolutely makes everything better. And it reminds me of summer!
