Steps (4)

  1. 1

    In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients and stir.

  2. 2

    Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.

  3. 3

    Shred the chicken with two forks. Return to the slow cooker. Stir and cook uncovered for 1 more hour on low.

  4. 4

    Serve in tacos, on nachos, over salad or rice, or plain.

    1. 1
      Place all ingredients in the inner pot of your multi-cooker and stir together. Turn on the multi-cooker and secure lid, setting pressure valve to “sealing.”
    2. 2
      Select “manual” or “pressure cook,” and cook on high-pressure for 10 minutes. Select “cancel” to turn off the machine.
    3. 3
      Allow the pressure valve to natural pressure release at least 10 minutes, then quick-release pressure by turning the seal to “venting.” Remove chicken and shred with two forks.
    4. 4
      Switch multi-cooker to sauté mode. Add chicken back in and cook, stirring, until warmed through. Serve in tacos, on nachos, over salad or rice, or on its own.

    * Always follow manufacturer’s instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Dinner! I’ve made this several times for my family. We usually make nachos or soft tacos with it. I think the key is to use a salsa you really like. Store didn’t have my usual brand this last time and so I bought something else that ended up making it taste too salty. Use a quality salsa, homemade, or rotel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, delicious meal We make this regularly. It’s easy, inexpensive and so flavorful. Great on a tostada sprinkled with cheese and guacamole. Even my fussy eater likes this. great over rice or stuffed into tacos.
