skinless, boneless chicken
taco seasoning mix
diced tomatoes with habaneros (such as RO*TEL® Hot)
finely chopped onion
finely chopped celery
This is a keeper for sure! Easy, delicious, and filling. Used salsa style fire roasted diced tomatoes instead of the Rotel because it's what I had. Used it tonight as a filling for tacos. Thinking about using the leftovers in soup of some kind. The husband who rarely rates any recipe high gave this one 5 stars! He thought it was better in a hard corn tortilla as opposed to a soft one.
I followed suggestions and used fire roasted tomatoes & used fire roasted salsa. I lightly sautéed the onions, celery and peppers before putting in the crock pot. This was delicious!! Served with fresh cilantro and sour cream on warmed tortillas.
I had high expectations about this recipe, but it just didn't turn out for me. After tasting it and deciding I had to do something...I added some salt, pepper and some mixed dried herbs after draining some of the liquid out of it and shredding the chicken. I then let it slow cook for another hour and it was better. I really think it was the salsa I used and maybe if I had used the fire roasted diced tomatoes that Paula suggested in her review it might have been a lot better. My suggestion? Use a really flavorful salsa and the fire roasted tomatoes and you might have a winner. Thanks Carajeanne for submitting this as it has great potential using the right ingredients. **Addendum 9-21-14--Because mine turned out extra spicy I added it to some cooked white rice...and...Viola!...it made a great tasting "Spanish Rice"! So, you never know what a difference one ingredient can make!
I hated it. It was soupy, and the chicken was rather dry.
