Easy Gameday Salsa Chicken

The easiest, most delicious and most comforting chicken dish ever - and great for a crowd! Throw the ingredients in your crock pot and forget about it until you smell the delicious scents wafting through your kitchen.


1 tbs vegetable oil
8-10 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 packet taco seasoning mix
1 jar New Canaan Farms Habanero Salsa
1 14oz can black beans
1 1/2 cups frozen corn

Sour cream, avocados and lime wedges


  • Pour the oil into a crockpot and place the chicken thighs on top.
  • Sprinkle the taco seasoning on top of the chicken. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours, or low for 6 hours.
  • Turn the chicken over and add the can of rinsed and drained beans, the corn, and any other vegetables you wish.
  • Continue cooking for 1 or 2 more hours, depending on cooking temperature.
  • Shred the chicken with two forks. Stir in the jar of salsa and toss to gently coat.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro, shredded cheese, and serve with anything you like! We love it with sliced avocado, New Canaan Farms jalapenos, Pepper Bacon cornbread and rice, and toated pita bread.

Refund Policy

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and stand by every product we ship to our customers. Please contact us for any product or shipment

We do not accept returns of product we have shipped. However, we have a limited 15-day refund policy, which means you have 15 days after receiving your item to request a refund or exchange if the product we shipped to you is defective, damaged or not what was ordered. Please note that refund requests will need to include a description of the defective product with photos.

We will notify you once we’ve received your refund request and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be refunded on your original payment method within 10 business days. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.

Shipping & Refunds

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.

If you have any questions or concerns about your order, a shipment, or a refund, we encourage you to call or email so we can handle it personally for you!
