    This was outstanding! This could also be used as the base for chicken nachos which is what I did! I added shredded lettuce, light sour cream, chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, fat free refried beans, and fat free shredded mexican cheese and it was delicious! Thanks for this recipe! - 1/23/11
    Added black beans and corn as well. Used 4 chicken breasts...could use up to 6 w/ 1 jar of salsa. EASY and GREAT!! I had mine over a bed of spinach, kids had w/ cheese on whole wheat tortillas. This base could be converted to a tortilla cheese soup and be fantastic! - 12/14/10
    I would like to know the actually measurment of "1 package of chicken" perferrably in ounces or pounds. - 8/19/10
    How many chicken breasts (total oz) is in this recipe? - 10/18/09
    These were really good! I made more of a burrito with this--added black beans, some brown rice, fat free sour cream & chopped tomatoes. Really easy and tasty! - 11/18/07

    It was so easy, took me maybe 3 minutes to put together. I added black beans. used frozen chicken and cooked on high. I even gave it the kids by making it quesadilla style and adding sour cream. My company raved about it! definitley making it again! might add red pepper next time. - 2/5/10

    My family loves these! We make them a lot! We use the meat for tacos and sometimes we just serve it over rice. It's delicious either way! - 3/18/07
    To lower sodium, you could use Chef Meg's recipe for Taco Seasoning. It has NO salt in it. - 5/4/14

    Also added a can of black beans and a can of corn. The only thing that I had on hand was a large package of fryer chicken so I skinned it and used it in the crock-pot as the directions stated. De-boned the chicken while shredding. Meat was so tender that it fell off the bone. We loved this recipe! - 1/28/12

    I love quick recipes...especially when they are doable in the crockpot. Add a crockpot liner to this recipe, and you have a quick meal and easy cleanup. Excellent!! - 3/16/07
    This is in the crockpot as we speak!!! I used Herdez green chile salsa...smells DELICIOUS. Also threw in some dry beans.... - 9/5/12

    Very good - 9/4/17
    I use this recipe all the time! I cut the recipe in half and throw the ingredients in the a slow cooker for 5-6 hours and it turns out delicious every time. I've used packaged taco seasoning and jarred salsa as well as homemade taco seasoning and salsa. Either way you can't go wrong. It's a must hav - 8/10/17

    I wonder if you can find a no-salt taco seasoning. I am trying to reduce salt consumption. - 4/22/17
