So the other night, when Laura, Sergio, and I went to club it up, I had this lotion that I put on because I thought it smelled awesome. Like for reals good. It’s that kind of lotion you put on and instantly feel more attractive because you’re oozing smells of lust. That’s how I would explain it at least. So I squeezed on some of the lotion and instantly asked Sergio to tell me how good I smelled….he said I smelled like a stripper. WINNING. Not really.

Speaking of things that smell….my friend Jake got his stolen car back a couple days ago…I don’t think it smells ok in there. Wanna know why? This is why, please read Jake’s facebook status:

“well…3 weeks later, they found my truck. on top of that they got the guys who did it, along with 5 back packs full of meth, 2 hatchets, 1 sword, a bunch of stolen goods….and gay porn and lube.”

You can imagine what the comments were like to that status. I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s not that funny, it’s actually REALLY scary, but still. It’s kinda funny. He’s getting a new truck. They had to clean needles out of it. That’s even more scary. And not funny. Sorry Jake. I’m a bad friend.

I’ve come to a decision about something. Recently, I tried to back off the coffee and start drinking some tea. I don’t know why. I do dumb sh*t like this. I like caffeine. Like a lot. And I like the taste of coffee. Tea taste like dirty water. Seriously. Don’t write me telling me about tea that tastes good because the only tea that gets me going is tea that is filled with 1/3 cup of honey. So really, sugar water is what gets me going.  I’m easy to shop for.

    I’m going to try this, but one of your messages stated to spicy, what can you leave out or do fewer of to make it not so spicy, I’m also a spicy wimp and my two young girls don’t do well with it either.

      Just cut back on the amount of jalapeños and green chili. Start with a very small amount, taste it and go from there if you want to add more or not.

  2. Tyson says:

    What kind of tomato sauce do you use? I made this once, and used a can of Enchilada sauce, which was mostly tomato sauce, but maybe a bit more watery? Just curious. Otherwise, amazing recipe!

    1. juli says:

      i honestly don’t know what brand it is, just whatever tomato sauce in a jar i can find with no added crap

  3. Tyson says:

    And this may be a stupid question, but do you mix the ingredients after you put them in, or do you wait until it has cooked for 8-10 hours before “mixing”?

    1. juli says:

      you add everything then mix it to help shred the chicken after it’s cooked

    This recipe is a winner! I served with cilantro lime cauliflower rice and added scallions as a garnish. Surprisingly, it wasn’t too spicy. Easy, filling, delicious, and guilt-free. This will definitely be a new staple in my house, thanks!

  5. Ben says:

    Wow, this looks awesome. I hate it when people post paleo recipes and put non-paleo ingredients in them. You rock and your stories are freggin’ hilarious.

  6. Kaydee Elliott says:

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was AMAZING!!! Is there a way to make it in the Instant Pot too?? Makes doing the Whole30 so much easier when you get to eat yumminess like this! ????

    1. juli says:

      i’m sure, just haven’t tried it that way!

  7. Rachel says:

    Has anyone tried this in the Instant Pot? I’m wondering if it will turn out the same.

    1. Sarena says:

      That’s what I want to know!

  8. Amy says:

    1. juli says:

      i’m not totally sure, i haven’t tested it that way

    Back on Paleo to lose unwanted weight. I remembered this recipe from 2015. Looked it up and we’re having it tonight for dinner. Can’t wait. It is so delicious.
