Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken

It is Cinco de Mayo which means Mexican food tonight.  It is warm outside so I thought I would give this recipe a try.  Plus instead of being in the house cooking all afternoon..I can be out enjoying the nice weather.

1# chicken breast
3/4 c. lime juice
1-2 t. taco or fajitas seasoning (* my homemade recipe is below)
1/2 c. cilantro

Put all ingredients in crockpot on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.  Shred chicken.  Serve as meat in tacos with lettuce, tomato, avocado and pico de gallo.
