We served our chicken in soft tortilla shells today, but tomorrow, I'm thinking of having it over nachos! Some other great ideas would be in taco shells, over rice or noodles. I think I'm going to have to make some Slow Cooker Black Beans to go with this in the future! (They are my new favorite beans!) I think that would have completed this meal!
Today was a great excuse to use my Tastefully Simple Simply Southwest Seasoning & Rub! I'm actually excited to use it on its own since there are directions on the actual bottle to use it in the Slow Cooker! How awesome is that?!!!! I can't wait to use this seasoning on the grill and in MANY more dishes to come!
I hope you find this recipe as easy and tasty as we did! Oh, and you'll have leftovers ;)

1 medium onion, chopped
1 - 14.5oz. Can Diced Tomatoes
1 - 4oz. Can Diced Green Chilies

Lettuce, shredded cheese and salsa for toppings
In your Slow Cooker insert, place the frozen chicken, then top with onion, diced tomatoes, green chilies and Simply Southwest Seasoning & Rub.

Take your chicken out and shred it.
