Chipotle Lime Chicken

A few months ago I posted about this cool idea I ran across called Freezer-Crockpot meals.  The basic rundown is that you take all the ingredients for a crockpot recipe, dump it in a bag, pop it in the freezer, and then put the frozen block directly in the crockpot when you're ready to cook it.  We had this recipe tonight that I had prepped, and it was delicious!

Chipotle Lime Chicken (4-6 servings/bag - recipe makes 2 bags)
2 cups diced onion
2 cups chopped celery
2 cups chopped carrots
8 skinless chicken thighs
salt and pepper to taste
2 cans tomato sauce
1/2 cup lime juice
2 tbsp minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
4 garlic cloves
1/2 cup cilantro
2 sliced avocados
Split all ingredients into two bags except avocado.  Freeze.  
Cook on low 8 hours. 
Thirty minutes before serving, remove chicken to a plate.  Shred meat from bones, then return meat to sauce and discard bones.  Serve with avocado on top.  Serve on top of rice or noodles. (We topped it with shredded cheese, crushed chips, and sour cream too).
