When I think of the words "crock pot" I think of like, the 1960s or 1970s. A Google/Wiki search revealed that the crock pot was invented in the 70s so maybe that explains my thought process, not to mention that my hand-me-down is from the same decade. Do you call it a crock pot or a slow cooker?
Anyway, whether you're a cook or not, a crock pot is a good gadget to have around. Recently I found a recipe for salsa chicken on Peanut Butter Runner that is delicious and very easy!
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper
1 jar of salsa (any brand/style you prefer, at least 12 ounces or more) - I used TJ's
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained and rinsed - I did not add corn
1 can chopped green chiles
Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a crockpot. Sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper. Pour jar of salsa over chicken and add in black beans, corn and chiles. Cook on low for about 6 hours or until chicken easily falls apart. Shred by using two forks to pull chicken apart and mix everything together.

And here is my salsa chicken, on top of chopped romaine and with cheese and avocado on top:
It is so delicious and worth trying!
