I am still struggling to find a crock pot recipe that I love, and had high hopes for this one, but I was not that impressed. It's easy and pretty good, but nothing noteworthy.

This was a pretty good Mexican chicken dish for the crock pot. I did make a couple of changes that I think helped improve the dish. When the chicken was out of the pot I shredded it and put it back into the blended sauce. I also then added a can of black beans. We served it with tortillas, shredded cheese and lettuce. Everyone liked it including the kids which is a huge hit in my book (to please the kids), but I think it was still missing something...maybe a can of chiles would be the clencher next time. Overall I was pretty pleased with the end result.

i made this with boneless chicken thighs and it was really tasty and moist. it definitely needs more salt & spice though.

This was wonderful! I used a green salsa and my family loved it. The sauce was delicious but I will reduce the onion next time becuase the salsa I used also had onion. One of the best crockpot recipes I have ever made!

Yummy! Really good and I will make it again! Our guys used a spicy cheese like Jack with peppers and the ladies used Mexican cheese. It was great rolled in a tortilla with cheese and sauce.

I made this for my girlfriend tonight without very high expectations, and we loved it! I did add a can of green chilies, a bit of taco sauce, and some cilantro. We will certainly make this again!

fantastic! and so easy to make... I spent more hands on time and attention making the rice than making the chicken. Added salt, garlic, pepper, jalapenos and cumin to the sauce before it sat for 5 hours and everything was fantastic. This is definitely a new favorite!

I took the advice of the previous reviews and added salt and pepper, cumin, fresh chopped jalepeno and chopped cilantro and it is delish!!! I also made with drumsticks instead.

make this all the time and my husband and i both love it! i always add cilantro to the crockpot, cumin and some crushed red pepper just to give it a little more spice and it always comes out great.

We made tacos with the chicken. I cooked it for about 5hrs on low, with chicken thighs. Pulled the chicken out and disposed of the liquid it cooked in, tossed it into the food processor, then mixed in green salsa and some sour cream! Came out awesome! We also threw black beans in the tacos :)

This turned out so yummy. I did make a few changes 16oz jar of mild salsa layer on bottom of pan topped with about six sliced carrots then layered with a roughly cut up and skinned chicken then topped with the rest of the salsa. Cooked on high for about 4 hours. WOW really good. Added some pre-cooked brown rice the next night and served with about a half can of northern white beans for a "gumbo" effect after removing bones from cooked chicken and chopping a slight bit. Tonight I will make a Mexican Strata adding re-fried beans and canned green chillies, and sour cream layered with corn and flour tortillas. Guess I didn't really follow the recipe real closely but it was sure yummy cooked this way and for the last incantation I will add a 16 oz bag of mixed veggies, the rest of the can of Northern white beans that I froze, with some veggie broth for a wonderful soup. There are only two of us so this recipe does go a very long way.

I like it really spicy so I added Habaneros to this recipe! it was sooo good. the Habs give it just the right level of spiciness for me. This was so easy to make, just like this Fiesta Chicken Recipe: http://www.squidoo.com/easy-mexican-crockpot-chicken-recipe
