How to Make Vegan Crockpot Salsa Chicken

Making this recipe is super simple. The first thing you’ll want to do is gather all of your ingredients. Next, crack open the canned items and drain them until all of the liquid has been removed. Set them aside.

Grab your crockpot and add the black beans, fire roasted corn, frozen vegan chicken, salsa, taco seasoning and salt. Cover the crockpot with the lid and lock each side. Set it on high for two hours and allow it to cook.

After about one hour, I typically like to give it a good stir just to help distribute all the flavor.

Once two hours have passed, remove the lid and top with optional shredded vegan cheddar cheese. Cover with the lid again and give it about 20 minutes to allow the vegan cheese to melt.

Once the vegan cheese is melted, get ready to enjoy!

Can I Freeze This Dish?

I haven’t tried freezing this Vegan Crockpot Salsa Chicken because it disappeared so fast, but I think it would do well in the freezer.

Just seal it up in an air tight container with a lid and tuck it away until you’d like to consume it. The day before you intend to serve it, transfer it from the freezer to the refrigerator.

When you’re ready to eat it, you can reheat it over the stove or in the microwave.
