    Tried this recipe this last week and it was wonderful! I added some minced onion and pepper but that’s it! I shredded the chicken and added it back to the crock with the salsa at the end of the day. It was wonderful on tortillas as tacos for a couple of nights and then I used what was left for the filling in enchiladas later in the week by adding a block of cream cheese and reheating the mixture. I topped the enchiladas with regular salsa and shredded cheese and baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes. This was perfect and can’t get much easier!!

    This same recipe using a lean pork tenderloin would be phenomenal!

    The new crockpots seem to cook hotter. I have an older one and it seems to work better with time on recipes than the new one. I made a lava cake yesterday in new one and had to cut time down by 1 hour. I guess you will learn by using it as to the time you need to cook your recipes.

    I made this today…And either my crock cooks real hot or you’re supposed to put the chicken in frozen? (This is only my second time using a crockpot & I am trying to learn how to cook more than boxed mac ‘n cheese!) I put it in on low and it was done in 2hrs & 45min. Maybe I should have just put it on “Keep Warm” instead? Anyone have any tips for a new crocker? Thanks! :)
