We LOVE Mexican food in this family. I think I make at least one Mexican dish a week. I especially love making copies of restaurant’s versions at home. Not only does it save me the time of running to the restaurant to grab take-out, but most importantly, it saves so much money!! I kid you not, this Cafe Rio copy of their shredded chicken is so good and tastes so much like the original but costs a fraction of what the restaurant charges! Plus, you can double or triple this recipe and freeze the left-overs for meals in the future! It’s so simple and easy. You’re family will love this chicken, I know mine did!
