Costa Vida CopyCat Chicken

What's for dinner at the Arnold house tonight? Costa Vida Shredded Chicken burritos and/or Shredded Chicken Salad. Yum!

Costa Vida Chicken
1 sm bottle zesty italian dressing (I use Kraft)
1 T chili powder
1 T cumin
3 cloves garlic-minced
4-5 lbs of chicken breast
(I added a can of tomatoes w/ green chilies and a hand full of cilantro)
Cook all together in crock pot for approx 4 hrs, shred then cook another hour

GREEN LIME RANCH
3 fresh medium (golf ball size) tomatillos cut into quarters
juice of 1 lime
1 c fresh cilantro - i usually just use half the bunch in the dressing and half in the rice
5 stalks of green onion with ends
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/4 to 3/4 t salt
1/2 c buttermilk
1/2 c mayo
1/2 c sour cream
1 pkg dry ranch buttermilk dressing mix or 3 T of the bulk
1/4 t crushed cayenne pepper
1 jalepeno chopped


GREEN RICE
Juice of 1 lime
4 t chicken bullion
2-3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 can green chilies
2/4 t salt
1 medium onion, chopped
Chop above coarsely and then fry in 1 T butter or oil
Add 1 1/2 c rice and fry
Add 3 c water, bring to rapid boil, turn down as low as possible, cover and simmer.
If you don't want the rice to stick together much, do not stir and cook on very low heat. If you want stickier rice, stir occasionally and cook on higher heat.
