- In a crockpot or large dutch oven over medium – high heat, place a dash of olive oil and about ¼ cup chicken broth. Add onions, garlic, jalapeno, sea salt and pepper and cook until soft, adding more broth as needed.
- Then add chicken, diced tomatoes, carrot, celery, tomato paste, chili powder and cumin. Add enough water to fill to the top of your pot. Cover and let cook on low for about 2 hours, adjusting salt & pepper as needed.
- Once the chicken is fully cooked, you should be able to shred it very easily. You can shred it in the pot by using the back of a wooden spoon and pressed the cooked chicken against the side of the pot. You could also pull the chicken out and use a fork to break the chicken apart and into shreds.
- Top with avocado slices and fresh cilantro.
