Mexican Salsa Crock Pot Chicken Recipe

I just finished up a lovely and relaxing vacation.  We spent a week on the road and ended up in Northern California in a little town Called Burney.  This quaint little town is home to one of the most spectacular Waterfalls I have ever had the luxury to see.  If you ever find yourself in Burney do not miss the chance to see the McArthur-Burney Falls, they are spectacular.  We enjoyed the Falls on a lovely 75ish degree day and went on a little hike in the woods surrounding the river.  Perfect day!

Upon returning home it was back to the real world and back to cooking up some mighty fine eats.  I tried this little gem of a meal which my whole family loved.  We all gobbled it up after some serious traveling induced hunger.  I hope you will give it a try..cause it is tasty!

You will need a Slow Cooker/ Crock Pot, Chicken Breasts, Taco Seasoning, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Sour Cream, and Salsa.

Add the Salsa, Cream of Mushroom Soup, and Taco Seasoning to your Crock pot and mix it all together well.

Salt & Pepper your Chicken on both sides then nestle them into the spicy bath of goodness.

Set your Slow Cooker to Low and let it cook for 6 hours.  Whenever I cook with the Crock Pot I think of that Ronco Rotisserie where they say "Set it and Forget it!"  I just love my Crock Pot!

When the cooking time is up grab some tongs or a couple of forks and shred the Chicken.  It will be so tender and luscious that it will shred very easily.

Mix in the Sour Cream..Oh yeah!  This makes it so creamy and good!

Serve on top of some Rice with a bit of Shredded Cheese, Diced Avocado, and Cilantro.  Or you can use it as a taco filling, or you can use it in a taco Salad, or...the possibilities are endless!  Just make this cause it's crazy tasty!
