Sometimes, I am just tired. My meat isn't all the way thawed, it's been a long day. I just don't want to deal with dinner, but I have too. That is when I turn to Salsa Chicken. It takes 2 minutes to throw it into the Instant Pot or Crock Pot. Once it is done all you need to do is shred the chicken.

You can fill tacos, burritos, quesadillas and top nachos. Even on top of some greens to make a southwest style salad would be delish! 

So the next time you need a fast and simple meal, give this a try.


1 Can Diced Tomato

1 Can Green Chiles

1 Onion

2 Large Chicken Breasts

1 Tsp. Chili Powder

1 Tsp. Granulated Garlic

Salt and Pepper to your liking

½ Tsp. Cumin


Add all of the ingredients in your Instant Pot and cook on the chicken setting. If the chicken is not all of the way thawed add another 6 minutes to the cooking time.  Once done, take out and shred chicken and return it into the pot. Stir and serve however you would like. Ideas: Nachos, Burritos, Tacos, Salad.
