Chuck’s Salsa Chicken

When you come home on a cold winter night you deserve a pot of hot, flavorful food. The best way to accomplish this? A slow cooker.

This dish opens itself up to great additions. I added both a spanish rice, onion, red pepper and some kernels of corn.

I substituted boneless chicken thighs in place of breasts. The thighs go really well with the Mexican flavors.

I want to introduce you to Chuck’s Salsa. In early November I spent some time at Chuck’s booth at the Fabulous Food show. I was able to taste their great salsa and learn about how they make it with high quality, natural ingredients. I was so glad to get a jar of each of their three flavors. The medium salsa brings a sweet heat to the party and is perfect for this recipe. As the recipe only used a cup of salsa, I was happy to finish off the bottle with a bag of tortilla chips!!!

The salsa is poured on top of the other ingredients.

After cooking, the chicken falls apart and the contents of the slow cooker turn into a Mexican bowl of flavor.

With the dollop of sour cream. A good dish for a great salsa!

    I do something similar with my Salsa Addiction, but I like how you make it stew/chili like! Yum!
