    As written, I'd have to give this only three stars, mostly because 3 hours on high is going to reduce cut up chicken breast to dry, tasteless mush. I substituted bone in skinless thighs, and they were just falling apart at the 3 hour mark. Once the cooking was over, I took the meat off of the bones, shredded it, and added back to the pot. I only had 1 cup of salsa, which was fortunate, as I thought there was a bit too much liquid when the cooking was done. I added a can of drained pinto beans at the end, just to thicken things up a bit and add a bit more substance. I also added a teaspoon or so of ground cumin to add a bit of smokey flavor. This was great over chipotle rice, and would also be good as enchilada or burrito filling. Thanks for sharing!

    Sooooo let's just say I would have submitted a picture had there been something to take a picture of. The family literally annihilated this tasty dish from the moment I lifted the crockpot lid. There were no leftovers. A definite new favorite and keeper! Thanks for a great recipe!

    My husband and I ate this over tortilla chips with some cheese and sour cream. It was good however we were expecting more of a meal not a dip or nacho topper. I do plan to make this again. I think it will be great for super bowl parties. Thanks!

    This is always a hit at my house. I serve it over rice, then eat the leftovers with tortillas. I find it only needs to cook about 3-4 hours on low. Any longer than that and it starts to burn around the edges of the crock pot.
