Slow Cooker Chili Chicken Tacos

One of my favorite types of food is mexican.  I love the taste and the textures, but I don't love the calories!  This recipe is not only low in fat, but a great source of protein.  You can change it up by using pork or beeg as well! Not to mention, the kids will eat it too! Enjoy!
4- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
1/2 cup your favorite salsa
1 to 2 tablespoons chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo
1 tablespoon chili powder
Coarse salt and ground pepper
8 hard corn taco shells
Cilantro, shredded cheese, lime wedges, and sour cream, for serving (optional)

In slow cooker, combine chicken, garlic, salsa, chiles, chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper. Cover; cook on high, 4 hours (or on low, 8 hours).

Transfer chicken to a serving bowl, and shred, using two forks; moisten with cooking juices. Serve in taco shells, with toppings, if desired.
