This meal will be on our family menu quite often. The whole family enjoyed it. I absolutely love the fact that you can throw a meal together in the crockpot, come home from work and dinner is ready.

Noel’s Quick Notes:
To freeze:Place 2 cups in freezable container. To thaw: Remove from freezer and place in refrigerator until ready to heat. Heat in microwave for 3-5 minutes per serving. Makes for great leftovers.
Can use shredded beef or pork in place of chicken. Corn tortillas can be substituted for flour. Any of your favorite salsas would work with this recipe. The Tomatillo salsa I used, was in the cold case section of the grocery store.
