Salsa Chicken

If you haven't noticed, we tend to make quite a lot of Mexican inspired dishes! We really love all of the flavors that are in Mexican food and it helps to change up the standard chicken recipes in our house. This dish is inspired by the Tufano Salsa Dip. I love the dip so much, I just had to figure out a way to make it into a main course! This is super easy and yummy!

  • Chicken Breasts
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 block cream Cheese
  • 1 can of black beans and 1 can corn
Mix salsa, taco seasoning and soup together in crock pot and place chicken breasts on top of the mixture. Try to submerge the chicken or scoop some of the mixture on top of the chicken. Cook on low 4-5 hours or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Carefully remove the chicken breasts and add the cream cheese. Stir until melted and well blended. Add the corn and black beans. Return the chicken and cook another 20-30 minutes. 

We served with Brown Cilantro Rice from our Chipotle Barbacoa recipe, or you can serve in tortillas.
