Come On Up To The House

Salsa Chicken

I was at my brother and sister-in-laws house the other day and saw them throw a few ingredients into their crockpot. I didn’t get the recipe, so made something up when I got home. This is a great lunch for me so I can grab a jar and go.

Salsa Chicken

1 bag (40oz) Chicken Tenders, frozen (I like the Aldi brand)
24oz jar mild salsa
2 tsp adobo seasoning
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin, ground
1 tsp garlic powder
2 cups chicken broth

2 cups beans (I used kidney beans, but black beans would have been great too)
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 lime, juiced

Get out the crock pot! Put everything from chicken tenders to 2 cups chicken broth in the slow cooker. Cook for about 4 hours, or until the chicken shreds. Add in 2 cups beans, 2 more cups of chicken broth and lime juice. Serve!

This can be served in different ways…if you leave out the additional chicken broth, you can serve the chicken as tacos with corn tortillas, or with nachos, or over rice. I like the soup version so I add the broth.
