Mexican Chicken

I found this recipe on Pinterest, it's everywhere so you can't miss it. In fact I think I had already pinned it 3 times before I actually tried it. Should have done it sooner. When there's only a few simple ingredients, it's an easy throw together dinner. And come on, who doesn't want that. every day.
I put it in the crockpot while I was prepping some other meals. So it ended up with some additional ingredients.
I'd give this 4 stars (maybe 5). one for easy. one for crockpot. one for juicy chicken. one for flavor.

So here's their version: 


1 pound boneless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon Seasoning for Tacos
Salt, to taste

1/2 cup enchilada sauce
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
3 green onions, chopped

Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with taco seasoning; grill or sauté. Cut the chicken into cubes and place in a greased 8x8" baking dish; season with salt to taste. Add the enchilada sauce and toss to coat the chicken. Sprinkle the cheese over the chicken and bake at 350º for 10-20 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Scatter the green onions over the top.
Makes 4 servings

And my version:

2 tbsp of chopped green peppers

Pour all ingredients except chicken into crockpot. Stir to combine all ingredients. Add Chicken. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 or more.
Serve on a warm tortilla and top with cheese. I also topped mine with lettuce and tomato.
