Spicy 3-Ingredient Crock-Pot Chicken

Did you get yourself linked up to the Crock-Pot Recipe Link Party and Giveaway? Well, as I was getting that post ready for you, I had this Spicy 3 Ingredient Crock-Pot Chicken in the slow cooker.  Just in case you didn't get enough inspiration from the link party, I'm sharing this simple recipe with you today.
It is literally 3 ingredients...chicken, taco seasoning and Ro-tel (tomatoes with green chiles).
Place the chicken in your crock-pot, sprinkle with taco seasoning and pour tomatoes over the top.
Cook on high for a 2-3 hours or low for 5-6 hours, until chicken is done.
Remove chicken and shred.
Return the chicken to the tomatoes and stir to combine.
Scoop some of the mixture in a tortilla with your favorite toppings and enjoy a quick and delicious meal...better than any fast food burritos you could buy.
Spicy 3-Ingredient Crock-Pot Chicken
(serves family of four)

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Tbsp. taco seasoning ( I love Trader Joe's taco seasoning)
1/2 can Ro-tel or tomatoes with green chiles

Place chicken breasts in slow cooker or crock-pot. Sprinkle with taco seasoning. Pour tomatoes over the top. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 5-6 hours, or until chicken is done. Remove the chicken from crock-pot and shred. Return to crock-pot and combine with the tomatoes. Spoon into taco shells or tortillas and serve with your favorite taco toppings. This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled to serve more people and it is easy to turn up the heat if your crowd likes it with a little more spice.

I sometimes turn the leftover chicken into a tortilla soup, or top a salad with it. This Spicy 3-Ingredient Crock-Pot Chicken is so versatile and a winner with every member of the family. If you like this recipe, you might want to check out my Slow Cooked Beef Burritos recipe too.
