Salt and pepper to taste.

lemon juice

Mexican cheese

Cook time 6-8 hours
Add all ingredients to slow cooker, cook on high for 4 hours then finish cooking on low for the remaining time.  about 2 hours before the cooking is finished take out the chicken and pull it apart and then put chicken back into the crock pot for further cooking.  

When ready to serve put lemon juice on top of the soup for additional flavor, also sour cream, and chives for topping it also goes great with tortilla chips on top!  Happy eating Enjoy!
