4-Ingredient Crockpot Salsa Chicken

salsa chicken 1

There are two things my husband and I love — lazy simple cooking and Mexican food. It’s usually our fall back when we’ve had long days and just want some warm food. The funny thing is is that we’re always thrilled with it’s deliciousness and come back for seconds… so maybe we should be practicing “simple” cooking more often? Nah, that’s just crazy.

Then I was thinking… can we simplify this even more? Have delicious, mouth-watering, perfect-for-leftovers Mexican food and make it just incredibly easy to make? And that’s how 4-Ingredient Crockpot Salsa Chicken came to be.

Is it incredibly obvious? Maybe, but it didn’t hit me till just now so don’t judge.

I want to say “let’s get cooking” but, come on, lets be real. Let’s start throwing ingredients in a crockpot, not worry about it all darn day and enjoy it’s flavorful goodness later tonight! HOORAY!

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups of your favorite salsa
  • Red, yellow, orange and green bell peppers julienned
  • 1/2 packet of taco seasoning

Place the chicken breasts on the bottom of the crockpot and spread the bell peppers around them and on top of them. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the chicken and bell peppers. Pour the salsa over everything and make sure to cover the chicken well. Cook on low for 7 hours. When you come home, shred up that gorgeous chicken and mix it up with the salsa and peppers.

Serve over rice or in a tortilla- I love either option! Seriously, the version of you that comes home after work and stares at the “empty” fridge will thank you for this one 😉 Enjoy!
