Just to be able to dump a few things in the slow cooker and be done with dinner REALLY appeals to the version of me who was up all night with the baby, and chased 2 toddlers around for hours already. I’m pretty sure that’s just how I am not not just a version of me lol. I’m ALWAYS looking for easy recipes I know my family will actually eat, and slow cooker salsa verde chicken ALWAYS gets eaten without complaints from my family of picky eaters.

My husband prefers to do chicken taco bowls with it, but the kids and I prefer to use our salsa verde chicken in burritos with just some cheese and sour cream.
