How about a vegetable salad tonight with a little salsa?
See,Having a jar of salsa in your pantry is great when you want to break out the bag of tortilla chips, but you can also use salsa to add flavor to dinners when you don't have fresh veggies on hand.

(Okay, or maybe when you don't want to spend the time chopping up those veggies...Like lazy me!) Combine with ground beef and a few seasonings to make a meatloaf, throw a quarter cup into an omelet, dump a jar of salsa verde into a slow cooker with some chicken breasts to come back to a warm, spicy pulled chicken, or dollop onto a piece of white fish...I don't eat fish..but some of you do...I'm just saying..
If you're looking to make a meal infused with flavor that everyone will love, look no further! Forget slaving over the stove and get a perfectly flavored chicken with this two-ingredient, no-fuss recipe! The prep is simple— toss your favorite salsa (we suggest one without any added sugars or artificial ingredients) and chicken breasts into the slow cooker and allow it to cook for about 4 hours. Voila! You've got yourself a meal packed with protein and juiciness.
2.Salsa-(Homemade or Store Bought if you're really lazy.)
To make this salsa chicken, just pop some raw chicken in a slow cooker. (I didn’t want to mess with bones, so went with chicken breasts for easy shredding.) Then cover it with lots of your favorite salsa.
Season it with some extra salt and pepper, give it a stir, and then let your slow cooker do its thing.
After about 4 hours (or all day long while you’re at work), pop off that lid, and the chicken should fall apart into shredded, juicy, salsa-y perfection.
The key is just to use really good salsa, since the seasonings in the salsa are obviously what will flavor the chicken. Remember, too, that the chicken will release plenty of its own juices during cooking. So don’t be afraid to use some salsa with an extra “kick”, since the intensity of its flavor will get watered down slightly while cooking. I also recommend seasoning the meat with extra salt and pepper before cooking. (And if you like heat, feel free to throw in an extra jalapeno too.)
I mean seriously. Shredded Mexi chicken could not get any easier. You’ve gotta try it.
Can't get any easier than that...Enjoy! Eat Well My Friends
