I made the recipe as written. Very tasty. Even my picky husband liked it.
This is a great low fat meal and super easy! Some of my family don't like corn so I substitute black beans. Yummy!
This recipe is a great meal to throw in your crockpot and come home to a yummy meal! My family doesn't like corn, so I substitute it with black beans!
I make this recipe all the time. I always double it so I have leftover meat to use in other recipes. I put the salsa in at the very beginning. At the end, I shred the chicken, add 2 cans of rinsed and drained black beans and 1 can of drained corn. This meat works perfectly for enchiladas, spicy taco soup (just add chicken broth & a can of rotel, top with tortilla chips & cheese) and is great for quesadillas (just drain the juice, add cheese & toast) It's really an excellent recipe and base for lots of other recipes. My family loves it!
I added fresh salsa and the corn at the beginning of the cook time and it really marinated the chicken well!!! This made it very tender and shredded with ease. It was absolutely delish !!!
