3 Ingredient Supper

 Salsa Chicken

Daddy-O was pleasantly surprised with this supper. He said he was glad he had not said disparaging things about this before he ate it. By the third helping he convinced me he liked it. We used this chicken to make soft tacos, topped with cheese, sour cream, salsa, chopped tomato, and shredded lettuce. Daddy-O declared, "This is a keeper." It is.

It's another 3 ingredient slow cooker recipe. So good. Good for busy days. Lazy days. Hungry days.


3 or 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa (I used a 24-oz jar of black bean & corn salsa)
2 teaspoons (I just sprinkled some over) homemade fajita seasoning 
          OR 1 packet taco seasoning

Put a thin layer of salsa into bottom of crockpot. Place chicken breasts in a plastic bag, add fajita (taco) seasoning and shake to coat breasts. Put chicken into crockpot and cover with remaining salsa. Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Remove chicken and shred with two forks. Put shredded chicken back into crockpot and mix with salsa.



4 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8—1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I used 1/8 tsp.)

Mix all ingredients. Store in an airtight container.
Use 2 teaspoons of seasoning for each pound of meat.

Forgive the Christmas paper plate in the photo. 
It was a lazy day. 


  1. I actuallybdidn't' notice the Christmas plate because I was too busy looking at the food!! had to go back and find the Christmas part of the plate. Some day I will beat your three ingredients dinner, but I think the only way that will happen is if the one ingredient I use is a $20 bill at. restaurant!!! You are a kitchen magician!

    1. Oh, you know I didn't invent any of this! I just love finding (and using) these easy recipes.


I love it when you say hello here! Next best thing to stopping by for a visit.
