Crockpot Salsa Chicken

September 21, 2013

Oh, how have I not put this up here already? It is hands down a fave for me and up North in the Bestie’s house. She is actually the one who told me to try it in the first place. Which is funny if you think about it… we did have to teach her how to make tuna salad back in the day, she has come a long way with cooking since then 🙂


  • 3 to 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup salsa (I like Greenwise by Publix or Paul Newman- medium for both)
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 can cream of chicken condensed soup OR make your own, which is what I do. Process for this in another entry.
  • soft tortillas


  1. Put your chicken in the bottom of the crock pot
  2. Sprinkle the taco seasoning all over the chicken
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the salsa and condensed soup mix*.
  4. Spread mix over chicken
  5. Cook on high for four hours
  6. Take a pair of tongs or forks and shredded the chicken
  7. Mix in the sour cream

You could eat this a number of ways… on a salad, as a dip, made up as a sandwich. I eat it rolled on a tortilla. I heat the tortilla for 10 seconds, then spread sour cream on it, sprinkle shredded cheese on it and load it up with chicken. Roll it up and eat! It is very good and very easy to make. The chicken freezes really well too!

* I really recommend making your own version of cream of chicken soup. Anytime I’ve made this using the can version it is sooooo salty. It is great when you make your own!

In looking up the recipe on the Bestie’s blog it looks like she got it from this blog.
