Salsa Chicken Burritos

Lisa has given me permission to share her award-winning recipe. May your taste buds enjoy the party you will be giving them:

Salsa chicken burritos

Put frozen chicken breasts (boneless skinless) in your crockpot. I used 3-4 breasts. Dump in one jar of bottled salsa (Lisa uses Pace Picante medium. I went with the mild due to the wimpiness of the taste buds around here).

Fill the empty jar about halfway with water to rinse it out and add it to the crockpot.

Let it cook on low all day. The chicken falls apart and is so tender and flavorful. Pull it apart with a fork. Serve on warm tortillas with cheese and sour cream (or whatever toppings you want).

My children DEVOURED this and begged for seconds, even though they could see tomatoes, onions, and peppers. (Take that, Jessica Seinfeld!)

That has never before happened in the history of the world.

And that, dear internets, is why she won (that and the absolute simplicity of her no-fail, little effort entry that embodies my cooking skills completely).

**If you want the rest of the recipes, email me. I'm still waiting to hear back from the senders with their permission before I send any more out. I will compile them into one file and happily email you the recipes, rather than post them here. I got a TON. And they were all just awesome.

Thanks, friend! I know what we're having for dinner. Sounds tasty!

Family Adventure said...

That sounds too easy to be true! I can't wait to try it. And I would love to be added to the e-mail list. I need some stuff.

Sincerely Anna said...

I'm most definitely going to try this. I've never had luck with chicken crock pot recipes in the past (always too dry) but this one sounds yummy enough to change my cooking ways. And my family's taste buds would be all for that :)

Lauren said...

Thank you, so much! That sounds fantastic!

Darilyn said...

This sounds great. I'm so glad you found a bunch of new recipes you liked. Congrats Lisa-Marie.

Ashlee said...

I actually made something similar to this last night. Instead of just salsa, put together a can of tomato soup, crm. chicken soup, chili powder and salsa...It's like a homemade red sauce. And I wasn't smart enough to dump it in the crock pot, though I will have to give that a go...I just put the chicken is a baking dish and poured the sauce on top and baked for an hour.
I'd LOVE more recipes when you get the ok!

Michelle said...

This sounds SO good! You have my permission to send out my recipes. Also, I would like copies of all the rest. Thanks!!

Rosie said...

Hey, I make this recipe but I add a can of black beans and we eat it with rice~but I am going to try it with tortillas. Not having to cook rice right before dinner is a good thing, no? (That's my laziness coming out.)

Chatter said...

Yummy!! Rosie's idea to add it w/beans and rice sounds good too. I can't wait for the recipe email.

THANK YOU

Meg said...

So...I don't know you. I do know Ilene. Who knows Jessica Romney. Who cracks me up. Which led me to wonder if her blog buddies would crack me up too. And that led me to your blog today. So hello!

This is an awesome recipe and is very similar to a crock pot fajita recipe on my mommy recipe blog. I thought you might be interested http://mommy-recipes.blogspot.com/2007/09/krickets-crock-pot-recipes.html

There is also a yummy crock pot enchilada recipe on that blog that I use over and over!

Lisa-Marie said...

It really DOES sound too simple to be true doesn't it?!?! Enjoy!

Please add me to the e-mail list! THX!

Amz said...

Please, Oh please add me to your email list! mikeandamz@gmail.com

Stacie said...

oooohhhh that sounds DELICIOUS. I am going to have to try that, thanks!

Tiffanie said...

I'd like the recipes, but I don't have your email address. Mine is tiffanie at ksbasementrepair dot com

Holly said...

I'm glad you posted it. Easy and delicious. My two favorite things. I'd love the recipes when you send them out too...

Lisa @ Take90West said...

That sounds so easy! And anything with cheese and flour tortillas will be a hit around this house!
Include me in the recipe mailer, please!

Bridget said...

Thank you! I already got my crock pot out. My kids will love this but the husband won't. Nathan hates tomatoes so he can have some leftover whatever from the deep dark recesses of the fridge.

gab said...

Thanks for posting and email me the rest too, of course!

Dancin Queen said...

Email them to me too! brianwendi@msn.com

Holly said...

I've tried something like this with adding black beans, corn and green enchilada sauce along with the salsa. I love that it cooks its little heart out in the crock pot after I SLAVED dumping everything in. This version is soupier, so is good over tortilla chips like soup.

I'd love a batch of recipes whenever you get them ready. My tummy is rumbling!

Jessica said...

You KNOW I want all of them, please!

Celia Fae said...

Lisa-Marie, she wins everything. She's a winner.

Please don't email me the recipes because then when I don't fix them and finally delete them I will feel guilty.

crystal said...

Do you think it'd be ok to put this on my recipe blog? Giving credit to Lisa-Marie and the contest, of course.

Diane said...

Now that's my kind of recipe. I thought it was going to be much more complicated than that. Thanks for sharing!

Bridget said...

Oh Stie, guess what???!! I am coming to Blogapalooza! I am so excied! I decided a slow time on race day would be well worth it. I can't wait to see you again friend. It has been too long.

Marty said...

I like how you've rearranged the furniture on your blog!

Thanks a billion.

Amz said...

Wow! These really are good! I made them last night after visiting your blog. My family scarfed them down too! The best part, they are so simple.

RobynandJoe said...

That sounds like my kind of recipe! I would LOVE a copy of all the recipes when you get permission...email them to me (robyngadd@gmail.com). Yay!

DanandCindy said...

Cindy here... MMMM, I get hungry just thinking about these! We have a recipe like this one - except ours has a little bit higher fat content. Once the chicken has been pulled apart, it is mixed with 8 oz cream cheese. They are great with the burritos, and the leftovers are wonderful for making a tasty chicken salad. I'll have to try it without the cream cheese. It would be quite a bit healthier! Thanks for the recipe!

HILLARY said...

can I have the recips, too?

Thanks, and you are one lucky wife :)

Laura/DaPFG said...

oh glory be. i made these last night for my boyfriend and his friends to eat "whenever" during football, and it was SO lovely to not have to get up and sort dinner. i put it in before church, and then i didn't have to think AT ALL when it came to be dinnertime.

thanks SO much!!

(Lisa-Marie's site only accepts Google/Blogger folks, so i couldn't praise her there! :P)
