  1. Am I correct in assuming that steps 2 & 3 should be switched? You first cook the chicken in the sauces, then shred the chicken? Thanks! This looks yummy!

  2. Buffalo sauce is a type of hot sauce. We generally use Frank’s buffalo sauces in our recipes. Thank you!

  3. Is it best to cook the chicken first, shred it and then add to the remaining ingredients?
    Or, can I put the raw chicken breasts with the sauces and cook all together for 8 hours on low and then shred the chicken, and finish off with the tortillas and cheese?

    Thanks
