Chile Lime Chicken Tostadas in the slow cooker

I recently created this recipe for Chile Lime Chicken Tostadas.  My family loves Mexican food and I am always looking for fun and new ways to cook it.  I especially love to cook the meat for my Mexican meals in the slow cooker.

Now, even though I made tostadas with this meat, you can use it for whatever you like.  I used leftover chicken for a taco salad and it was also fabulous.  I think tacos would be another good use.  This meat is tender with just a little heat and kick of lime.  It is just the right amount of spice to make it family friendly.
