Cilantro Lime Chicken Wraps

I saw this recipe on Life as We Know It, and she found it, where else but, on Pinterest!


In a slow cooker, mix together:
  • One 24-ounce jar medium or mild salsa
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • One 1.25-oz. package taco seasoning
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)
  • Add 4-6 thawed chicken breasts, cover with salsa mixture, and cook for 6 hours on low, or 4 hours on high.

You can eat the chicken plain served with tortilla strips and sour cream, but I chose to do it a little differently.  I served the chicken on tortillas (I like to fry mine for about 10 seconds a side each in a lightly sprayed fry pan on medium)  Add toppings like sour cream, shredded cheese and lettuce.
Top with sour cream/crushed tortilla chips to garnish.


  1. looks yummy - I'm trying to low-carb, but I bet the filling would make a great southwestern-style lettuce wrap!

  2. that looks so delish! i will def. add this to the list of recipes to try!
