I have a new found love for crockpots. It all started when I found an old one in my basement and immediately cleaned it up and started researching recipes. Since then I’ve invested in a much better (and safer!!) newer model. I now use a 7 quart Crockpot that is surprisingly cheap here on Amazon. Crockpot recipes are a staple in my house, simply because of how easy they are to make. I absolutely love being able to just throw in the ingredients and walk away. So I want to share with you one of my all-time favorite crockpot recipes…Crockpot Salsa Chicken! This is definitely a repeat recipe of mine, and everybody who has tried it loves it!

One of the reasons why I love this recipe is because it’s so simple, yet so versatile! Serve it over rice, put it in a salad, or use it to make tacos! The possibilities are endless! If you want even more flavor, you can even add a packet of taco seasoning to the crockpot before cooking.
