What you need (ingredients)
- chicken breasts
- jar of green chili-505 is a good brand. I have to settle for this green salsa, but I like green chili better! Buy whatever you like, from mild to spicy
- green chilis (canned or dehydrated)
- optional, depending on variation (see below): tortillas, sour cream, cilantro, tortilla chips, and/or eggs. The sky is the limit!
You can make this to feed any size of crowd. When I first had this camping, we had two giant crockpots full. I have a smaller crockpot, and only cook for myself so I used 4 chicken breasts, one small jar of salsa, and 1/2 cup dehydratred chilis, plus about 1/3 cup of water.
*Crockpot tip* Your food will cook best if your crock is at least 2/3 full.
What to do (instructions)
Cook on high for about 3 hours or low for 6. If your chicken is frozen, cooking on high for 4-5 or low for 8-10 hours should suffice. When it's done, shred the chicken with forks or just cut into smaller pieces.
Here's the rundown of some different ways to eat this tasty dish.
#1 Out of a bowl, with a spoon
Top with some sour cream and cilantro and gobble this up as a stew.
#2 On top of tortilla chips, nacho style
#3 Scrambled up with eggs for breakfast or dinner
One of my favorite post-workout dinners when I'm so hungry I'm ready to gnaw off my arm.
#4 In a taco or burrito (with or without eggs)
Also delicious topped with cilantro and sour cream. Because really, what isn't??
#5 Use it to smother something else
I had leftovers of this when camping and used it to smother these breakfast burritos. It was to die for!
