So if you’ve been around for a while now you know that I don’t blog about food and recipes very often. I actually think it’s only happened about four or five times over the past couple of years, but YOU GUYS. I’ve discovered the easiest crock pot chicken green chile and I just have to share it with you because this is seriously SO good. And it only takes three ingredients. Yep, just three. And you can literally throw it together in five minutes, which is the best part. I make this all the time and it’s become one of our FAVORITE meals. It’s perfect for an easy weekday dinner or even a family gathering. But I’ll be honest, I have to give all credit for this recipe to my husband. He randomly came up with it several months ago all on his own. We weren’t sure how it would turn out, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that it makes the yummiest green chile in all the land. Or at least we think so!
Five Minute Crock Pot Green Chile
- 2 16oz jars of 505 Southwestern Green Chile Sauce–(I prefer Medium, but if you like things extra spicy you can do hot)
- 2 to 2.25 pounds chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup water
The magic ingredient here is 505 green chile sauce. It’s absolutely delicious. Plus it’s vegan and gluten free. (I believe most grocery stores carry it!) Simply throw everything in the crock pot and cook on high for about 5 hours.
When it’s done cooking, shred the chicken with a fork and knife. Then serve in a bowl with cheese, avocado slices, sour cream, pico de gallo, a warm tortilla on the side, etc. (And be sure to save some for left overs because it’s even better on day two!) Seriously, it’s SO GOOD. And dinner doesn’t get much easier than this.
I honestly had no idea how this would turn out when my husband came up with it, but we were both shocked at how good it is. It has TONS of flavor. And I like to think of this as one of those meals that looks like you tried a lot harder than you really did, you know what I mean? It looks like it involves a ton of time and effort, but in reality it only takes five minutes. And I have to say, this green chile is just as good as any other green chile I’ve made. You could throw in some extra ingredients like peppers or beans to bulk it up a bit, but this is usually all I do. Plus you can also kick the spiciness up a notch if you like things hot. And like I mentioned earlier, I think the leftovers taste even better, so try to save a couple bowls if you can! (I haven’t tried this with pork, but I think that would totally work too if you want to swap it for the chicken.)
