KRAFT Tex Mex Shredded Cheese
I didn't want to run a huge slow cooker for a small amount of meat. For me, one pound of of chicken was two chicken breasts. I didn't bother cutting it into strips, I just cut each of the breasts in half and laid them in my smaller "dipper" crockpot over the frozen corn, sprinkled the (homemade) taco seasoning/flour mix over the top and poured the (organic) salsa over. I let that go all day until dinner, then lifted the chicken out and shredded it with two forks, then mixed it back with the sauce.. I sauteed the peppers (I didn't cook them with the meat as I didn't want them to be limp) with some onion and fresh garlic. When I made the wraps, I layered the onion/garlic/peppers on the tortilla, then spooned some of the chicken/salsa/corn mix over it, then sprinkled it with cheese. Surprizingly good. We all loved it, especially me because I didn't have to make a big production over dinner OR drag out the ginormous crockpot and it was an easy way to make fajitas. In a roundabout way, I guess. This is a keeper.
Tasty, but tasted more like chili to me than a Mexican-inspired dish. I won't be making this again.
Makes a big batch, and you can vary the flavor a little based on what kind of salsa you use. I use half of a bag of frozen "stir fry" mix (onions, red and green peppers) to save time, too. We eat it over brown rice and leave off the cheese.
This was amazing and so full of flavor! I cooked it on high for 4 hours and added the bell peppers during the last hour. Everything came out perfect! It made a large batch, but there weren't any leftovers because we couldnt get enough! DEFINITELY making this again...SOON!
I made this for the first time tonight and it was a hit! Left out the corn. Substituted an orange pepper instead of green. Served over white rice with sharp cheddar cheese. Fresh cilantro on top. Fabulous...can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow :)
Awesome! I used all the ingredients listed but I was w/out my slow cooker (that usually never leaves my counter!) so I baked this in the oven. Here's how it went down: 1. I used 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (left them whole). 2. Mixed the flour, taco seasoning and corn together in a bowl along with the salsa. 3. I arranged the chicken and the sliced peppers in a lightly sprayed baking dish. 4. I poured/spread the salsa mixture over everything. 5. Baked it at 375 for 1 hour. 6. I added the mexican blend of cheese (just over the chicken breasts) with 20 minutes left on the timer. DELICIOUS. Everyone cleaned their plates! Will definitely be making this again!
Incredibly simply to make (especially if you use the stir fried pepper mix as a previous reviewer suggested). Very tasty to eat. Definitely a keeper.
Oh my, I have to give this 5 stars. This was an awesome dish. I added an onion in and it all turned out deli-sh. I served over white rice. I will defiantly make this again and again.
