Salsa Chicken (Slow Cooker)
I know this dish probably doesn't look that appetizing but you have trust me on this one. In fact, I think you should bookmark this page if you like the following: chicken, Mexican flavors and your slow-cooker. This is the very popular (at least in the food blog world) SALSA CHICKEN!
Who knew chicken breasts + can of cream of chicken soup+ taco seasonings + sour cream could be so good. I know I sure didn't. I had seen this recipe so many times but it just did not sound that appealing. Of course, everyone raved about it, hence it's popularity.
Well, I'm so glad I tried it too b/c it really is so tasty....and easy!! If you have already made this dish, please feel free to leave your review below. THANKS!
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup (I used the cream of chicken)
1 cup salsa
1 package taco seasoning (I used 1 Tbsp of my homemade taco seasoning)
1 cup sour cream
cilantro, for serving (optional) (I also added a little shredded cheddar-jack, black beans and scallion on top)
Put chicken, soup, and salsa in slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over everything. Cook on low for 6 hours. If shredding the chicken, pull the breasts out and shred; return back to slow cooker. Stir in sour cream and heat just until everything is combined.

My version is a little different, but its a staple in our house. Such a great, easy meal!
The dish looks so delicious. I would like to make it tonight. I have bought a new slow cooker yesterday only and want to use it for making this dish.ReplyDelete
This is my kind of dinner! Simple yet delicious! My mom use to make this all the time for us. I love it!ReplyDelete
This is by far one of my husbands favorite recipes!ReplyDelete
I'm usually not a fan of crockpot chicken because of the texture, but since this such an Internet hit, I decided to give it a try. I am so happy I did! Not only did the texture turn out well, but it was tasty! Thank you for the recipe!ReplyDelete
I have it cooking now while I'm here at work, can't wait to come home to a cooked meal. Hungry thinking about it. Thanks for the recipe!ReplyDelete
Holy Salsa! I am making this tomorrow night - would have been tonight but I already have the pasta sauce brewing. YUM!ReplyDelete
Sounds yum! This is going on tomorrow nights tea menu for sure!ReplyDelete
Making this right now for tomorrow night!!! Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
Let us know how it turns out.
Do you put the chicken breasts in the slow cooker frozen or thawed? Can't wait to try this recipe!ReplyDelete
I used thawed chicken but I'm sure frozen would work also. You might just need to let it cook for an additional hour or so.ReplyDelete
Frozen meat in a slow cooker is not really a good idea. Why? Because as it thaws, it spends a good deal of time at an unsafe temperature.Delete
I put frozen meat in my crockpot ALL the time. It's not an unsafe temperature, because you're just cooking it from frozen.Delete
Yes, but it is being cooked from frozen at a much slower rate than in the oven. The slow cooker gives the bacteria too much time to grow, and all of that juice is then soaked up into the other items in the pot.Delete
...And is then heated to a higher temperature, which would kill whatever bacteria you're referring to. Its science.Delete
Hmm... by that logic, you should be able to eat spoiled meat because it "kills whatever bacteria" you are referring to. Science suggests eating meat that has the opportunity to grow harmful bacteria should be discarded. I agree with the original post. Frozen meat in the slow cooker spends too much time at an unsafe temperature.Delete
I have always used frozen and i'm still alive to tell about it :)Delete
Many slow cooker cookbooks have addressed this and have determined it is safe. It's not at an unsafe temperature for long enough.Delete
is there any sub for the cream of chicken soup? sorry...it kind grosses me out for some reason, haha.ReplyDelete
I sometimes use Cream of Celery. It's good for almost any recipe calling for a cream soupDelete
Cream of Asparagus is also quite tastyDelete
check online. There are all sorts of homemade versions that taste WAY better than the stuff in a can. And they come together in about 5 min.Delete
I do a similar recipe all the time without the soup or sourcream, I use the salsa, taco seasoning, cilantro, some lime juice and always add a can (or two) of whole black beans (rinsed) and it comes out amazing without all those extra calories.Delete
As an additional tip, I only use salsa casera Herdez because I don't like the taste of others.
I don't like any creamed canned soup. I make a white sauce and use it instead.Delete
I hear'ya! Just google "cream of chicken soup sub" and you will find a homemade version.
Is the chicken supposed to be precooked or do you put it in raw?ReplyDelete
Use raw chicken. It will cook for 6hrs.ReplyDelete
I used frozen chicken and took it all out and shredded the chicken after about 6 hours on low. Shredding it allowed the chicken to really soak up the sauce. I didn't even remember to put the taco seasoning in until after I shredded the meat and it was still really good. Thanks for sharing this.ReplyDelete
When should I shred the chicken? After the six hours are up??ReplyDelete
This might be a stupid question, but what size can of soup are you supposed to use for this recipe?ReplyDelete
Yes, shred after 6 hrs. Then put back into the slowcooker.
Just a regular 10 3/4 ounce can.
Can I cook this on high? I don't have 6 hours.ReplyDelete
Just adjust the time..
maybe 4 hrs on high
sounds good...could add corn and black beans too....also could be put in a tortilla for a wrap....will make this week...ReplyDelete
Just made this today and it's so delicious! Thanks for posting.ReplyDelete
Amy @ A Little Nosh
Delicious!!! There aren't many meals that I just love, but this was awesome. I made it just as you make yours with the beans cheese and cilantro, omitting onions. Very easy to make. I doubled it and it worked out great! Thank you for sharing. It's definitely one we'll be making again.ReplyDelete
We are making this one right now!ReplyDelete
Did you put the beans into the crock pot as well? If so, at what point?ReplyDelete
Could I make it with Cream of broccoli??ReplyDelete
You can put the beans in during the last 15-30 minutes.ReplyDelete
Hmmm, no I would not sub in cream of broccoli.
How many chicken breasts did you put in?ReplyDelete
I think I put in like 2 large chicken breasts.ReplyDelete
This was delicious. I doubled it and added in a can of black beans and some corn. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Hmmm...cream of broccoli or asparagus DOES sound pretty good though. None of the taco seasonings, but put in some other seasonings or fresh herbs, maybe serving over stuffing? Yummmm!ReplyDelete
You can add a can of rinsed black beans when you start the meal, won't hurt and the beans will soak in all the yummy juices and make them so delicious! I also add in a can of (rinsed) chopped jalepenos!ReplyDelete
I just want to thank you for this delicious recipe! I made this for the first time last night and we absolutely LOVED it! I too added the beans and cheese, and I used the taco seasoning recipe and it came out so good. This recipe will be used again and again.ReplyDelete
Thanks Margie! Glad you enjoyed it!!ReplyDelete
I just added this to my "In the Kitchen" page on my blog, super good! Thanks for sharing. http://handmadebyhilani.blogspot.com/p/in-kitchen.htmlReplyDelete
I'm out of taco seasoning. Yikes any suggestions?? I would really appreciate it. Little late to run to the store.ReplyDelete
I have a recipe for homemade taco seasoning in the post. Try that....you probably have all the spices you need on hand. If not, use a combo of chili powder, garlic and cumin...or what always works for me...borrow some from a neighbor.ReplyDelete
Ty I just noticed that as soon as I wrote it and I had all the spices so I excitedly mixed them up and it even smells better than the actual seasoning packets. So thanks you are wonderful! I'm trying really hard to be a better knowledgable cook for my kids and family.ReplyDelete
No problem...hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
We made this for dinner last night and had it in a tortilla for a quick burrito. DELICIOUS! Can't wait to have leftovers for lunch! :)ReplyDelete
Absolutely loved this recipe!!! It went straight to our "keepers" list :)ReplyDelete
Making this again for the 3rd time. We love it. Thanks for the great recipe! We have added the black beans and it's great. I think I will add corn this time...ReplyDelete
Also, I found it on pinterest!
So glad you like it. Thanks for leaving feedback :)ReplyDelete
I am actually going to use Fage plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream and see how that turns out!ReplyDelete
Do you always serve it over rice? I'm a horrible rice-cooker :-) I need to serve 15 ladies (using 2 crock pots) and this recipe looks perfect!!ReplyDelete
No, you don't have to serve it over rice. Try serving it in taco shells (soft or crunchy) and have lettuce, sour cream and pico de gallo for toppings. BTW, I'm terrible at cooking regular long grain rice but LOVE Jasmin rice. Give that one a try....you might like it better too.ReplyDelete
This is really yummy! I found in on pinterest two weeks ago and I'm making it for the second time tonight! Also, your taco seasoning recipe is delicious. I mixed up a bunch and put it in a little container for the next time I need some. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Am making this tonight for my family. Have been loooking for some new recipes to add to our menus. Will let you know what the boys think.ReplyDelete
This is my second time making this. My whole family.loved it and my.husband said it was probably the best thing I've ever made him!! Thanks Maria. I have a 5&3 and one on way and everyone has different tastes of course so this was a breathe of fresh air. If you have any other recipes I would greatly appreciate them!! Cooking isn't my strongest suite but I can follow a recipe :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the feedback and congrats to your upcoming bundle of joy!
The slow-cooker wild rice and chicken soup is another very popular recipe that I have posted. I recently posted a slow-cooker chicken and mushroom recipe and have another to share too. I liked both a lot!
Sounds delicious!!!! At what point do you add the sour cream???ReplyDelete
About 15 minutes before it's done.ReplyDelete
YUMMY! Found this on Pinetrest and had to try it. Made it for supper tonight and it was fantastic! Thanks for the wonderful new meal!ReplyDelete
I have leftover turkey (cooked). Do you think this would be a good substitute for the chicken? And I wouldn't have to let it cook as long since it's already cooked...ReplyDelete
Sounds like it's worth a try....just adjust the time. Let us know how it turns out.ReplyDelete
Do I need to cook the chicken any before I put it in the crockpot? Also, does this freeze well? Thanks for the feedback!ReplyDelete
No, the chicken cooks in the slow-cooker for 6 hours....it'll be perfect. I don't know how this would freeze...I probably wouldn't.ReplyDelete
TOTAL YUM!! IT'S OVER 100 (40C) DOWN HERE IN AUSTRALIA SO STUCK IN THE HOUSE WITH THE AC RUNNING FULL BLAST! I HAD THREE CHICKEN BREASTS, CREAM OF CHICKEN SOUP AND ADDED SLICED AVOCADO AND LIME JUICE WHEN SERVING. FORGOT THE CHEESE BUT DIDN'T MISS IT! SHARING THIS RECIPE WITH ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN! THANKS!ReplyDelete
I made this yesterday, and it was fantastic!ReplyDelete
this recipe is in my crockpot right now and it smells CRAZY GOOD in my house!!! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Do you think I could sub low-fat or fat-free sour cream and low-fat cream of chicken soup?ReplyDelete
So good! My family loved it! Thank you for the recipe.ReplyDelete
Made this last night for dinner and it was SO yummy. Even my picky 4 year old liked it.ReplyDelete
Anyone happen to know the nutrition facts for this meal?ReplyDelete
Do you serve it over rice?ReplyDelete
yes, but you can serve it anyway you like. Works great as chicken tacos.ReplyDelete
Followed the recipe and served it over rice...GREAT Mexican chicken dish...tasty and easy! Found it on Pinterest.ReplyDelete
I love this recipe! I doubled it for me and my husband the second time I made it because we both wanted seconds the first time and there was not enough for both of us! But I was short 1 can of cream of mushroom and had to go to work, so I just added 1/2 cup milk and it turned out fine!ReplyDelete
So, I asked about using turkey breast before...we ended up using the turkey for something else, because my husband thought turkey and salsa sounded disgusting, understandably. We made this recipe finally tonight (with chicken!) and it was awesome! This is the 2nd meal he's said he'd make again, so I think it was a success.ReplyDelete
Just make sure you actually use all of the taco seasoning it calls for - I used a little less, and it wasn't as flavorful as I would have liked it, but still great anyway!
Just put this in the crock pot. Can't wait to eat it tonight!!!ReplyDelete
Saw the recipe last night and made it tonight.ReplyDelete
So, quick question...at 4 hours on slow (stirring about once every 45 min to an hour, the stuff is sticking to the sides of my dish pretty good and look completely done. I'm going to go ahead and cook it the full 6 hrs as instructed, but was wondering if you or anyone else had this issue? Should I have sprayed the inside of the pot first...I've never had to before. Thanks...should be ready in 15 more min for the sour cream stage and serving! :DReplyDelete
This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing! What kind of salsa did you use?ReplyDelete
I don't remember what the exact brand I used, it varies. Just try your favorite jarred variety....it will be great!ReplyDelete
Jumping on the salsa chicken bandwagon... Sean made it for dinner last night and we both thought it was great. Thanks for the recipe!ReplyDelete
Glad you both liked it :)
I'm making this recipe for tonight. Looks so yummy. But I think I made a mistake...I put the sourcream in with everything right at the beginning. Will this ruin it? Yike :(ReplyDelete
Hmmm....possibly. Not sure how the sour cream will do after 6 hours. Sorry :(ReplyDelete
I'm making this now! Can't wait! Should I put the whole packet of taco seasoning in or just 1 tbsp?ReplyDelete
I'm not sure how many Tbsp. are in a packet of taco seasoning. I used homemade taco seasoning. It really is up to you though...my kids don't like super spicy food so I keep mine on the mild side. Let me know how it turns out.
I just measured a McCormick packet of taco seasoning. There are roughly 5 1/2 Tbsp of seasoning in there. I'm doubling the recipe but think I'll stick with one packet. Wish me luck.Delete
My husband gets heart burn really easily and although he liked the taste as we were eating - it killed him later. I think it was the salsa...or maybe the taco seasoning. Any suggestions for some other alternatives?ReplyDelete
Can I make this without sour cream???? I don't have any but would love to make it--I have all the other ingredients.
I make mine pretty mild b/c of the kids. I would suggest using a mild salsa and going easy on the taco seasoning for next time.
The sour cream makes i nice and creamy but that salsa is what gives it it's flavor. I've never made it without sour cream but think it's worth a try.
I made this today and tasted it with tortilla chips before I was ready to serve. Everyone started eating it as a dip with the chips - it was really good. My husband suggested adding corn next time! Thanks for the recipe - it was a big hit!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing this, I'm making this now for the 2nd time. The first time I made this, I omitted the can of soup, and instead added a splash of chicken stock, and upped the sour cream, and added the black beans. It was excellent, in fact, I couldn't help myself, I kept sneaking spoonfuls left over in the crockpot. I'm trying it this time with homemade 5min salsa from here...ReplyDelete
...and will use greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. Also, I will up the spice, since the sour cream/greek yogurt plus the rice we put it on, really dulls the heat. Thanks again, love it!
A friend of mine suggested this to me and it was a hit at our house. So super easy I am making it again for a potluck supper tomorrow at church. Thanks!ReplyDelete
How many does this serve? I need to feed 8 people and I have a large crock pot.ReplyDelete
Can I put it in on high for 3 hours??ReplyDelete
Delicious as a tortilla chip dip!ReplyDelete
I put about 4 lbs of chicken breasts in a large crock-pot and quadrupled the soup and salsa. I also used two packets of taco seasoning. Do you think this will turn out too runny? They were still a bit frozen too so I set my crock-pot on high for 6 hours. Thanks for your input.ReplyDelete
I made this a couple weeks ago after picking it up on Pinterest. I sort of forgot to put the cream of chicken soup in, but honestly it tasted awesome without it! i used it as a taco filler so it worked out. I think you might need it if you use it on top of rice though. Excellent recipe for the mom on the go!ReplyDelete
Made last night and was not at all impressed. I felt it was very bland considering the amount of seasoning there is. Would make again but with different seasonings.ReplyDelete
This has good flavor. I tweaked it to make it healthier...ReplyDelete
I used a homemade cream of chicken soup recipe with chicken broth, milk, and spices. Substituted plain greek yogurt for the sour cream. And I wanted it to be a one-dish meal so I added veggies as well: black beans (not a veggie, I know!), corn, red pepper, finely diced carrots, and chopped spinach. Everything melds together and soaks up the flavors. Stirred in more taco seasoning and salsa right before adding the yogurt to brighten the flavor. Will have the leftovers with tortillas tomorrow. Yum!
Would this be ok over mashed potatoes? I have it cooking now but just realized I'm out of rice!!ReplyDelete
Sure! I don't associate Mexican foods with mashed potatoes but I don't see why not otherwise. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
So I made this recipe and it was super delicious! My girls loved it and I can't believe how easy it was to make. I used your taco seasoning recipe and that is so much more tastier than the package seasonings.ReplyDelete
how many servings does this make? i am excited to try this recipe.ReplyDelete
About 4-6 servings. This is an easy recipe to increase.ReplyDelete
Will it mess up the recipe if the sour cream was added with all the other ingredients at the beginning of cooking it?ReplyDelete
I wouldn't recommend it.ReplyDelete
Hi, I just found your weblog via google free cooking games. Your viewpoint is truly pertinent to my life at this moment, and Ia€?m really pleased I found your website Dora Games.ReplyDelete
I am goin to try today but am going to cube my chicken and see what happens.ReplyDelete
I fixed this tonight for dinner.......DELISH!ReplyDelete
Could I use cream cheese instead of the sour cream at the end just to give it some creaminess?ReplyDelete
Hmmm...it will mellow out some of the taco seasoning but I don't see why not. I'd add less cream cheese though than sour cream b/c of it's thickness. Let us know how it turns out!Delete
I used chaboni greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it was delic!Delete
Trying this tonight, looks yummy.ReplyDelete
Is it condensed cream of chicken soup you use? I have a tin on just normal 'non condensed cream of chicken soup.
Thanks for sharing!
Yes, it's the condensed version...not sure if it would make a huge difference with the non-condensed kind.Delete
Thanks for the recipe. Found you on Pinterest.ReplyDelete
I just made this. I didn't have cream of anything soup (my husband actually eats them) so I used a can of creamed corn .... My sour cream had expired (I've been sick so things I thought I had) ... So I used cream cheese ...... Wish I had made a double batch !! There are no leftovers !!!!ReplyDelete
This has been a favorite in our house for years! I've never tried it with the cream of whatever soup, we just use the taco seasoning, salsa, and sour cream for those who like it. But now I'm thinking I should try it with a can of cheese soup... Sadly, my crock pot crock broke, so I have to get a new one. But this will be the first thing I make again :)ReplyDelete
Tried this today and it was a hit. My skeptic of a husband for anything different, loved it and thought of different ways it could be served.ReplyDelete
Has anyone cooked this longer than 6 hrs? I work full time, so my slow cooker recipes need to be able to cook for a little over 8 hrs.ReplyDelete
Did everyone shred their chicken before adding the cheese or sour cream?ReplyDelete
I am trying this tonight. I may even add in a can of black beans. Sounds yummy.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to make this. With the extreme temps here, I love when I can make a hot dinner without having to use the stove/oven. I do have a question though, when do you add the black beans? Thanks for sharing!!ReplyDelete
Made this for dinner tonight. Omitted the sour cream, served over rice and black beans and topped with jack cheese and chunky quac. So good! Leftovers will be served wrapped in tortillas.ReplyDelete
I literally bought a crockpot today and made this. It's so delicious! I served it with bag boiled rice and chopped white onions. So good! This is the first time I've really cooked chicken well. haha Thanks for the recipe!ReplyDelete
I came across this recipe on Pinterest and finally got around to making it. Oh my goodness! Delicious!ReplyDelete
Found this on pinterest, i just started it in the crockpot n can't wait til.its done! I used cream of cheddar instead of cream of chicken, ill post results in a few hours!ReplyDelete
Great! Let us know how it turns out :)ReplyDelete
Just wondering if you add water with the cream of chicken soup? Or just the can of soup on it's own? Can't wait to try it!ReplyDelete
Just the can of soup...no water.Delete
This is the easiest meal I have ever made!!! It tastes so good!!!! Thank you for sharing :-) I will be making this all the time.ReplyDelete
This is the third time I'm making this and I always forget to comment. I found your recipe on pinterest this past summer. I use my slow-cooker for a minimum of 4 meals a week due to my DH and my work schedules. My husband is not a fan of most slow cooker meals because he says everything comes out wet, lol. He LOVES this and requests it every week. I am amazed and thrilled! I hate the slow cooker meals that require pre-cooking (seriously, f I had the time to precook, I'd have the time to make the whole meal!) so this one s terrific. When I add the sour cream, I cook the rice at the same time so dinner is ready pretty much when we walk through the door!ReplyDelete
My husband accidentally bought fat-free sour cream. Will that work instead of regular? I know sometimes it doesn't.ReplyDelete
That should be fine....but if it's not just blame it your husband (kidding:-) )ReplyDelete
This is the second time I've had this...it's cooking now. I tripled the recipe and am sharing with a neighbor who just had surgery. This time I added the black beans and Mexican corn. I substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream(added protein!)I have four boys ages 17,16,10 and 9 and the all love it!I'm having a hard time not dipping into it early!ReplyDelete
very nice thank you so much =)ReplyDelete
How much salsa should be used with the recipe?ReplyDelete
Excited to try this tonight!
This recipe calls for 1 cup of salsa.Delete
Sorry, saw this after I posted :/Delete
I have about an hour left on the cooking time, it hasn't thickened up at all, is this normal? Smells great by the way.
Made this yesterday. However, I changed it up a bit. Did a can of Ro-tel, cream of chicken soup and taco seasoning with the chicken breasts. After shredding, I threw in a handful of brown rice about an hour or so removing from crockpot. Also added a can of black beans (rinsed and drained) to the mixture.ReplyDelete
Then I wasn't sure how to serve it, so, I made a lasagne sort of dish. Browned some flour tortillas, then put a little olive oil in bottom of glass pan, layered tortillias, mixture,cheddar/jack cheese, more tortillias, etc ending with cheese on top. Came out great. However,even though I only used 2 chicken breasts ( they were the large frozen kind), should have split it into 2 dishes and froze one. Being from Texas, I will probably add a little more 'spice' next time, but hubby loved it.
Thanks for the feedback. I like your changes....YUM!Delete
Sound verry good plan on makeing it this week.ReplyDelete
This has turned into one of our go to meals. Love it. Thanks for the recipe!ReplyDelete
Love it! Making it for the second time.ReplyDelete
I like to use Cheddar cheese soup instead. Costs a bit more at our store, but we like it. :). (Sorry, didn't read all of the previous posts, so idk if anyone else shared this idea). HTH!ReplyDelete
I screwed up and put the sour cream in at the beginning just now, am I doomed?ReplyDelete
Aack! My guess is that it might be a little watery...please let us know how it turns out.Delete
Delicious! The whole family loved this. Husband has determined this must be put into the dinner rotation!ReplyDelete
when do you put in the sour cream?ReplyDelete
At the end, as per the recipe. Enjoy!Delete
do you put it in the crock pot and for how long? thanks! just got back from the store and can't wait to make :)ReplyDelete
As per directions in the recipe.Delete
This is def. a staple in our house! We switch up the recipe ONLY by putting it all in a warmed tortilla! It makes such a delicious burrito! I love how much it makes too because it is yummy as a left over! :)ReplyDelete
I accidentally put the sour cream in with everything else!! Will it still turn out??? Totally freaking out!ReplyDelete
Aack! Might be a little watery??? Sorry...let us know how it turns out.Delete
I made this yesterday and it was delicious! I also accidentally put the sour cream in at the beginning with everything and it turned out just fine. I will definitely make this again! It was so easy and has so much flavor.ReplyDelete
We had this for dinner tonight and it was a huge hit! My parents were over for dinner and my dad said it was lick your plate good! We will be adding this to our dinner rotation! Thanks!ReplyDelete
did you put all the package taco seasoning ?ReplyDelete
I use homemade taco seasoning not the packet. Depends how much spice you like.Delete
My husband is not a fan of slow-cooked chicken, but he loved this! I also spiced things up a bit with cilantro-lime rice.ReplyDelete
Made this, loved it! Thank you for sharing! :)ReplyDelete
Came across this recipe on Pinterest and it's amazing, I even made the homemade taco seasoning. So easy and so good. Thank you for sharing it.ReplyDelete
So I just made this and it is DELICIOUS! I added some things suggested in the comments. I added a can of rinsed black beans and some frozen corn right into the crock pot in the first step. I then added cream cheese for the last 30-40 min after I shredded the chicken. It is so creamy and delicious! We are having it over rice tonight, but will try it in tortillas tomorrow!ReplyDelete
Love this recipe...sooo good!! The whole family loved it! The black beans were a nice addition to this dish. :)ReplyDelete
Sorry if this is a duplicate - tried to post earlier and it didn't appear. I made this last night and it was so good - hubby raved! Maybe the best part was finding the homemade taco seasoning - delicious! I think I will throw the packet I have in the pantry into the garbage. I added a can of black beans and corn, as suggested by some others. I 'shredded' the chicken but not too small (thumb-sized). As I do with all recipes that call for sour cream or mayo, I substituted fat-free Greek yogurt for some of it (health, calorie reasons). Depending on the recipe, I can usually do half and half (if the recipe calls for a cup of sour cream, I do 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of yogurt). In some cases I do as much as 2/3 yogurt and 1/3 sour cream, some you can only get away with 1/3 yogurt and 2/3 sour cream before the recipe just "isn't the same". You have to start with a smaller proportion of yogurt and increase it each time you make the dish until you can tell when it is "enough" and you don't want to do more next time.This time I did 1/3 yogurt 2/3 sour cream and it was delicious. I'm confident that next time I can do half and half and it will be just as good. Also, with most Mexican "stew" types of dishes I serve crumbled blue corn chips or plain tortilla chips on top - I just like the texture / crunch. Thank you, this is a keeper for sure!ReplyDelete
