    So good! I started with frozen chicken because I'm lazy and it came out so juicy and delicious. I love meals that cook themselves. This one is idiot proof too. Leftovers are delicious as well! - 12/16/10

    I had this for dinner tonight and added onions, shredded lettuce and a little bit of reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar, and 1 taco filled me up! It was delicious! - 1/24/10

    Great recipe! I think I'll keep the cilantro out and add it raw next time, I love the flavor. It's so easy and tasted awesome! - 1/28/10

    DH and I really enjoyed this dish. DS thought it was too watery and didn't think it tasted like a taco. I cooked for 8 hours in the crock pot and that was too much. Chicken was a bit overcooked. - 1/25/12

    Oh my, this was SO good! I used bone-in breasts with the skin and seared them in a pan before adding to the crockpot to give them some dimension. I discarded the bones and skin when I shredded it and let the shredded meat cook in the juice for another hour, to let it absorb the flavor. Thanks!!! - 3/11/11

    Winner! A new favorite at our house - thanks SO much. This is awesome. We too used fresh cilantro to top off the tacos instead of adding it to the crock pot. Mmmmmm.... <3 - 7/17/10

    I loved this recipe! The lime added a lot of flavor. We used corn tortillas, and I served it with Black Bean & Cilantro Salad with Corn (another great recipe from SparkRecipe). - 2/16/10

  • Very easy basic slow cooker reciepe. Could add lots of stuff, but good they way it is.
    Did add more celantro at the end as I love it fresh. Fed 4 people and had about half left so
    it goes a long way. Used it for nachos tonight, and will freeze some for a quick meal. - 12/13/13

  • After shredding the chicken, I added it back to the crock pot with the salsa mix. Stir it , and it soaks up the juices really well. Now no need for taco sauce. - 10/22/13

  • Excellent! In my large slow cooker, this took only 3 hours on low setting. I used homemade taco seasoning with no salt, and just added a little salt at the end, along with the cilantro. Served in crunchy taco shells. The whole family loved it! - 3/23/13

  • Love this! But I must admit I have a thing for chipotle chilie so I had a table spoon or so to mine. - 11/7/12

  • Started with fresh chicken, added juice of 1 lime. Next time I'll add more lime. You could barely taste it. I've made chick with salsa in my crockpot before, just didn't add lime. Nice touch! Ate it with no-fat sour cream in a tortilla. Yummy-and drippy, too. Next time might drain the salsa a little - 10/13/12

  • I loved this..I wound up using mission carb balance flour tortillas..so very yummy. I am glad I used medium heat salsa, which I think that the mild would have been too bland. - 6/8/10
