Crockpot Cheddar Beer Chicken

I love a good taco recipe! Found this recipe when I was searching for new recipe to try for our secret recipe club and we loved it! Super easy to throw together, although the workers that were at our house were wondering why I was pulling out a beer at 10:30 in the morning! :)

Crockpot Cheddar Beer Chicken
(recipe found at http://cookinchemist.blogspot.com)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup beer
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup freshly grated monterey jack or cheddar cheese
taco shells or tortillas

In a bowl, combine spices. Measure beer and stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons of spice mix. Place chicken in crockpot. Pour beef mixture over top. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. When cooked, remove the chicken from the crockpot and shred. Add chicken back to liquid and mix until combined. Leave in crockpot to cook for an additional 15 minutes. Remove the chicken from the crockpot and immediately mix in the shredded cheese.
