Thought I'd warm up this thread .... emoticon since it it such a 'fav' .... Am cookin for dinner and what I will do for tomorrow is 'drain' some liquid off and wrap in tortilla & serve like an enchilada. (Did before & loved) .... added a dab of low cal grated cheese to top and some taco sauce ....... (also one member said she used dried cilantro) ... good idea! emoticon & I like greek yogurt on top of the recipe if I don't have the sour cream ... (so many ways to vary) .......

(I also made enough taco seasoning for future instead of making each time--& put it into a spice jar and labeled) ........ It is so good & a fraction of the cost @ store) ... emoticon

I made this recipe before buying the book. We love it. Made it twice now and the second time I tippled the recipe so I have plenty frozen for us. It's hard to find something healthy my spouse likes. He loves this recipe and I bought my book because of that.

Enjoy the moment

This is also one of my favorites! I recently made it and forgot the yogurt! hmmm...wonder if something is going around. This is one of those extremely versatile recipes, that not only do I think you can harm, but there are many things you can do with it.
Glad you enjoyed it,emoticon

I made this recipe for the first time this weekend, and really loved it. I forgot to add the extra tomatoes, so I'll do that next time. I really liked the taco seasoning in the recipe, very spicy and flavorful. I cooked it 8 hours on low, and it was really moist. It made so much, so I'll have plenty of leftovers for lunch and dinner.

Have not tried any recipes, as of today. But definitely need to check out that salsa chicken and I love using the crockpot on a work day. That will probably be the first recipe to try.

Be thankful and live each day with no regrets...:)

We made this burrito style. Spoon chicken mixture onto tortilla, top with sour cream and cheese. Roll.

I modified it by adding more seasoning, onions, tomatoes, and salsa (I like Chuck and Dave's Salsa). I also added in bell pepper, corn, and cilantro. Next time I'm going to even add in some black beans.

It did have a lot of juice so I had to strain some of it out before shredding the chicken.

This was so good!

MZKAY25, Did you use just a can each of the corn and black beans? I had bought a can to serve on the side with mine and was so busy it didn't get cooked.

Mine was also a little juicier than I liked. I might leave the water out next time.

Well, I have finally made this recipe! I added some pigeon peas that I had soaked yesterday along with some yellow pepper, didn't shred the chicken as I was somewhat concerned about my husband's reaction to the recipe and felt that shredding it would add to his possible negative reaction. I served this over brown rice. First thing to say is it smelled so good while cooking, I couldn't wait to try it. Next, my husband actually liked it, I'm sure he still would prefer a simple grilled chicken breast but he had no negative reaction. After we had our lunch, I did shred the rest and added brown rice to the extremely juicy pan and presto chango, I have some SW style soup! I had cut the recipe in half so this is just the right amount for our meal plus! Glad I finally made this and I can envision using it to make enchiladas too.

It is extremely difficult when you are trying to accommodate different tastes. If he isn't one to fend for himself, you could set out an extra breast, marinade, sauce or something quick and easy and stick it in the oven, saute it or whatever the usual. Keep it simple though.

I like the black bean and corn substitution. I may try a new substitution for sour cream made from greek yogurt and lemon on the side (who knows what the mood will be) Allergic to cilantro so that won't be tried. Thanks for sharing your additions. As I always say, there is so much which can be done with this recipe.emoticon

i made this the other night and I really enjoyed it. (I love hot and spicy, so it was right up my alley). I really liked "Chef Meg's taco seasoning and I know I'll use that again. I also liked a lot of the other suggestions. I've never tried "Greek yogurt, I'm going to have to pick some up.

I have been meaning to try this recipe for some time but in a way I'm glad I haven't yet...I love the idea of adding pinto beans and serving with chips...this is on the menu this weekend!

The last time I made this, it was for a pot luck with lots of people, so I added some pinto beans, corn, and doubled the other vegetables. I took one of the suggestions and served it with some tortilla chips and didn't mix in my sour cream substitute (we never have sour cream in the house, so I use non-fat greek yogurt with lemon juice, which works just as well) so people could add what they liked. It was a huge success! Everyone loved it.

I am unable to take too much spice. I didn't use taco seasoning either. However, I had some garlic and her Mrs. Dash. It tastes more of cumin than garlic and I had no idea what I would use it for. I don't like amount of sodium in regular taco spice and can't eat the ingredients in Chef Meg's. I used the Mrs. Dash, added more garlic and pepper (I never get enough) and used the mild salsa. That seems to work well for me. It takes some experimentation when cooking to find personal preferences as they all seem to differ. That is what makes it fun for me-a sort of creative outlet.
Hope you can find a happy medium.emoticon

I am not one for too spicey and I messed up by using the SP taco seasoning recipe and I used medium salsa instead of the the mild. That part was my boo boo. However it was the seasoning that overpowered me. However my DH is from Guatemala and loves hot and spicey and well he added his hot peppers to them. He and my daughter seemed to enjoy it but not I. So I know I could try it a different way next time but I probably won't. The Tamale pie from SP had a similar taste without too much spice and so I will just stick with that one.

I made this today. After reading that others thought it was dry and that some people added the whole can of diced tomatoes, I did that too.

I really wish that I had used taco seasoning from a packet instead of using the taco seasoning recipe in the cookbook. All I could smell and taste was cumin, which I apparently am not very fond of... so that was a little disappointing.

I'm not sure if my crockpot doesn't cook as hot as others or what, but the salsa chicken was very soupy. I am glad I had planned to serve it with rice rather than on a tortilla.

I think with some minor modifications this could be really good though. Next time I won't add water and I will use taco seasoning from a packet.

I made this recipe and quite enjoyed it. I too used the whole can of tomatos and not the amount from the recipe. I found ths made it nice and moist. I served it with rice. With leftovers I made a wrap one day for lunch and then made a quesidilla with it another night. It did make a lot, but I wanted lots of leftovers. emoticon

Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be little bit better today than you were yesterday.

This is one of my first attempts. I found it quite good. I also made some changes. Instead of using taco seasoning which has more sodium than I need at the moment, I had some Mrs. Dash which claims to be garlic and herb, but smells mostly of cumin. I used that instead, added garlic and pepper for more spice (can't ever get to much of those) and Yum! I also used more tomato, and when I reheat I add a bit of water and cover leaving two minutes in microwave.
I think my tomatoes may have been flavored, but that didn't affect much of the integrity of the recipe.emoticon

Made this tonight and it turned out really well.

My crockpot may run a little on the hot side. I cooked it on low for just over 5 hours and the chicken was perfectly done. It was plenty saucey...kinda just right in that regard.

My small modifications: I used a whole 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes and it only called for using 1 cup. Also, I didn't have the right spices it calls for so I used 2 T of a packaged taco seasoning mix. Figured that mix was close to same flavor.

Served it in a bowl with rice. Tomorrow I'll use leftovers in a tortilla I think.

I agree that adjustinrbg is needed for appliances. My crock pot is new so I will keep in mind that seems to "run on the hot side" so to speak.

Since I've seen this recipe mentioned a few times in the favorites section of this team, I want to try it out myself. Thnx for the tips, tho. My crockpot is a newer one and does seem to run hot, so I will keep that in mind when cooking it. I do find that we get to know our own appliances (crockpots AND ovens) and have to adjust recipes accordingly. I find that I am usually adjusting recipes all in the same type of way (usually the liquid content) to my own preferences, anyway.....

I agree. When I reheated mine last night, I added just a wee bit of water, covered it with saran wrap (which I usually don't do) and put it two servings in microwave for 2 minutes. It didn't dry on me, thank goodness. Sometimes, as you commented, you just need to adjust for your particular appliance.emoticon

I made it today. Because of my timing, I cooked it on high for 2 hours, then turned it to low for 2 hours, and it was not dry. My crockpot is about 8 years old, but I have heard that some of the newer crockpots run "hot".

I made the salsa chicken, and it wasn't dried out at all. It could very well be the reheating using the microwave. I have an older crockpot and cooked it on low. It Is, as you know, often necessary to make adjustments for various reasons. I am sorry yours didn't turn out well. I am getting ready to store the remainder of mine. I will see how it fares in the long term.
Sorry you didn't have the best of luck.emoticon

Hi,
I made this over the weekend and had it for dinner last night....my chicken was dried out..seemed over cooked. I did take it out of the crock pot at 5 and a half hours not 6 as it clearly was done by then. Perhaps only 4hrs in the crock pot would work better or maybe the reheating in the microwave did it. Anyone else find this ?
