You’re only three ingredients away from making this delicious dish: chicken, salsa, and taco seasoning (that’s it!). Just prep it in the morning and your personal chef…I mean, slow cooker…does all the work for you. Once the flavorful chicken is done, you can use the shredded meat to make crunchy tacos, sandwiches, cheese enchiladas—there are so many creative ways to serve it up.
