Slow Cooker Mango Salsa Chicken Burritos

Sometimes you just need something to throw in a slow cooker or the oven or whatever and be done. This is where this Mango Salsa Chicken Burritos recipe came from. We use the Sabra Peach Mango Salsa from Costco but lately our Costco has been selling the Pineapple salsa instead so we’ve been using that with more seasoning to spice it up a tad.

Nothing crazy exciting, but it is easy and tasty. That’s all that matters on some days. Now, I know that not everyone has access to costco, but I’m sure you could use a different sweet/tangy salsa and it would be just fine. My favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s not only easy but really versatile. I’m so all about one recipe that can be used in a bunch of ways, burritos, tacos, salads (you know, taco salad style like Cafe Rio), and rice bowls or even quinoa like with our cilantro lime quinoa. And then the leftover, yup, I toss it all in a big pot with broth and turn it into soup, tortilla soup!

  1. This is such a great meal option!

  2. This looks delicious! My family buys peach mango salsa at Aldi. It is sooo good! I want to make this, but I’ll have to buy a jar special and hide from my husband–he thinks it’s too precious to cook with, ha!

  3. Slow cooker recipes are life savers! Totally making this into tortilla soup!

  4. Yum Yum Yum..the mango salsa puts it over the top!!!!

  5. Just wanted to let you know I really like your blog. I get great ideas from it all the time. I have a question…. Have you ever tried Oatmeal Squares from Quaker? My kids love the brown sugar and cinnamon and the apple ones. Do you know of any recipie that would give me a similar result. They are a little pricey for my boys to gobble down two at a time. Thanks.

  6. This looks wonderful. And what a great idea adding the mango salsa… YUM.

  7. I love dishes like this and agree…sometimes you just want something quick, easy to prepare and still tasty. I am sure this is just that. It looks pretty too!

  8. I love the mango salsa from Costco. I often bake chicken breasts in the oven in this. I'm going to have to try it in the crockpot.
