This easy flavorful chicken makes a delicious filling for tacos, burritos, chimichangas and enchiladas. It's also great on nachos and taco salads.
6 cups cooked & shredded chicken--approx. one whole chicken or 6 split breasts (use store bought rotisserie chicken, or cook your own breasts; recipe at www.theyummylife.com/recipes/77)
1 cup salsa (store bought or homemade recipe at www.theyummylife.com/recipes/130)
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (store bought or homemade recipe at www.theyummylife.com/recipes/76)
1/4 cup water
Add cooked, shredded chicken to 3 qt. (or larger) pot. Add salsa and taco seasoning mix and stir. Stir in water. Over medium heat, cook until heated through; approx. 10 minutes. (NOTE: If you prefer a saucier chicken, add more salsa until desired consistency.)
Use as filling for tacos, enchiladas, chimichangas & burritos along with your favorite toppings. Also good on nachos and salads. Freezes and reheats well.
SLOW COOKER OPTION: You can cook this start to finish in a slow cooker. Add raw, skinless, boneless chicken along with other ingredients (omitting the water) to your slow cooker, cook on low for 4-6 hours until fork tender, shred the chicken with 2 forks, mix with sauce, and it's ready to eat.
