This recipe gets my highest praise! I took a chance and made this for my extended family over the 4th of July Holiday. I doubled it and used Emeril's Southwest spice blend, which really "kicked it up a notch!". Everyone loved it and it was so nice to throw everything in my big crockpot and go swim and play with my family all day. I will be doing this one again!
Shredded chicken in salsa perfect for taco's or served on top of rice.
