Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

All you need are these simple ingredients to make this slow cooker salsa chicken — good salsa and chicken!


  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes with habaneros (such as RO*TEL(R) Hot)
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 cup prepared salsa
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Put chicken into the crock of a slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the chicken. Layer diced tomatoes with habaneros, onion, celery, and carrot over the chicken, respectively; top with salsa. Pour water over the entire mixture.
  2. Cook on Low until the chicken is easily shreddable, 6 to 8 hours. An instant-read thermometer should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  3. Shred the chicken with 2 forks and stir with the salsa mixture.
  • Cook’s Notes:
  • As a low-carb option just serve in a bowl, similar to stew, and top with grated cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and chopped scallions.
  • Great for filling tacos and burritos or even as the meat for a tortilla soup. Use your imagination to create other menu ideas.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
