this recipe is a great way to get rid of leftover mexican ingredients! I did not have chipotle salsa, but I had leftover salsa and chile in adobo peppers. I also added a bit of orange juice for sweetness. I think there are many add ins that could be used. The chicken was very tender and my taco's were fantastic! Great idea!

My son described this as one of the best things I've ever made. I prepared it as written except added a small can of chopped green chiles for the last hour. Next time I'll use hot salsa rather than mild. Still, it was excellent. We used it to fill tacos and topped them with a black bean and corn relish. Definitely a menu to be repeated.
