“Quick, easy burrito/taco filling that is delicious and freezes great! I serve this with tortillas, shredded Cheddar cheese and little sour cream. You could fill the tortillas and put them all in a baking dish and then cover with salsa and cheese and bake for about 10 minutes, if you don't want a mess at the table.” - by JUBEEFISH

- Place chicken breasts and tomato sauce in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then add the salsa, seasoning, cumin, garlic and chili powder. Let simmer for 15 minutes.
- With a fork, start pulling the chicken meat apart into thin strings. Keep cooking pulled chicken meat and sauce, covered, for another 5 to 10 minutes. Add hot sauce to taste and stir together (Note: You may need to add a bit of water if the mixture is cooked too high and gets too thick.)

"If you leave out the packaged taco seasoning packet, and just bump up your other seasonings, & with about a 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch for thickening, you will avoid the saltiness (plus the additives ..." See more& preservatives) of the pre packaged and it is great. Add onion or whatever other spices you like in your tacos or burritos. Tasty."
"The best way to shred this is to put the chicken in the crockpot. I used 3 frozen chicken breasts. Mixed all of the ingredients(decreased the taco seasoning and cumin per the reviews) and poured it ov..." See moreer the chicken. I I cooked it for about 3 1/2 hours. This is the mexican version of the Zesty Slow Cooer Chicken Barbeque. You can make changes anyway and I don't think you could screw it up. Simple and good."
