Slow Cooker Mexican

slowcookerNothing stresses me out more than coming home after a long day and having to figure out what’s to eat while trying to calm two cranky kids. Because of this, the slow cooker can be my saviour. The following recipe, given to me by my friend Jen, is so easy, you can throw it in the cooker five minutes before you’re supposed to head out the door.

Ingredients:

  • four chicken breasts or 1.5 pounds of pork
  • one can condensed Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup
  • one medium sized jar of green salsa (salsa verde)

Directions:

  • Put the meat in the bottom of the cooker (if you’re using chicken, the breasts don’t even need to be defrosted).
  • Pour the condensed soup (don’t add water or milk!) and the salsa on top.
  • Turn slow cooker on low and voila! go enjoy your day. Dinner will be ready in about 7 hours!

The best thing about this meal is that you can use the meat filling as tacos (garnish with chopped cilantro, onions and tomatoes) or roll it up in tortillas and make burritos, or serve it on the side with rice and beans. So versatile!

  1. I LOVE this recipe! I use chicken and once it’s cooked, I shred it. I actually use a small container of lite sour cream in place of the soup and red salsa instead of green. I serve it over iceberg lettace with all the mexi toppings. :> YUM!

  3. I have a similar stand-by version – but I am excited to try this one!

    We call ours Croc O’s (short for Crock Pot tacos):
    – About 1lb boneless, skinless chicken (breats, thigh whatever)
    – 1 package French Onion Soup Mix
    – 1 large jar pace Picante Sauce
    * sometimes I make it fancy and add a can of drained / rinsed black beans

    Slow and Low 8 hours
