This incredible slow cooker salsa chicken is an deliciously cheesy flavour packed dish. It’s perfect if you need to feed some fussy eaters as it’s so damn delicious.
You only need 4 very simple ingredients to make this delicious dish. In fact, if for some reason you decide against the cheese then just salsa, taco seasoning and chicken will suffice. It’s certainly one of the easiest slow cooker chicken recipes that you will find around.
The type of salsa that you use for this dish is totally up to you. If you love spicy food then feel free to use a spicy salsa as it should still turn out great. If you really love the heat then add a tablespoon or two of some chopped jalapenos.
There are many ways that you’re able to eat this dish including just on its own. If you have the spare time, I highly recommend that you try cooking up some Mexican rice to go with this delicious salsa chicken. They go so well together and you will get even more serves out of one lot of this salsa chicken recipe.
Keep the leftovers as they will certainly come in handy the next day for lunch or dinner. Simply reheat in the microwave or a hot oven. The leftovers should last for a few days in the fridge if stored correctly. You can also freeze it but cheese often doesn’t freeze very well.
