Bajio Chicken

Okay, so I still haven't actually eaten at Bajio, so I don't know how authentic this recipe is. What I do know, is that it is delicious!  Everyone liked it.  And it doesn't make as much as the Cafe Rio Pork, so you don't have to eat the leftovers for weeks to finish it off!

5 chicken breasts
1/2 cup salsa
1 Tbsp cumin
1/2 cup brown sugar (more to taste, I added at least an extra 1/8 cup)
1 4 oz. can diced green chilies
6 oz. Sprite (1/2 can)
Combine all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Remove chicken and shred. Return to crock pot and cook 1 more hour. Thicken the juices with a little cornstarch mixed in water.
Serve with flour tortillas, lettuce, cheese, black beans and any other taco fixings.
If you want it spicier rather than sweeter add a hotter salsa and more green chilies.
