While I was out shopping at Pete’s Fresh Market one day I spotted La Morena Chipotle Sauce on the shelf. I then had the sudden idea to take that chipotle sauce and use it to make some Slow Cooker Pulled Chipotle Chicken Sliders for our Sunday afternoon football watching.

My Hispanic heritage comes from my dad. My mom is Italian so I didn’t learn to cook Mexican dishes until I got older and finally asked my family members to teach me different things. I’ve taken what I’ve learned from them and branched out with Mexican flavors and combined them to create different types of food. These Slow Cooker Pulled Chipotle Chicken Sliders are a perfect example with a Mexican and BBQ pairing. Kick Off Some Football Yum with Slow Cooker Pulled Chipotle Chicken Sliders #VivaLaMorena #CollectiveBias

To get this meal underway I first had to make the sauce. The sauce is packed full of so much flavor!

Once I got the sauce made I placed the chicken breast and sauce in the slow cooker. Turned it on and let it do its thing.

Once the meat was fork tender I took it out and shredded it. I then added it back into the sauce and served on slider rolls.

Since this was football party food I made sure to have a lot of topping options for my family and some sides to enjoy with the sliders.
