Spoiler alert! I just gave the whole recipe away in the title. It's that simple! Which makes this recipe crazy versatile, you'll be using it in EVERYTHING.

Tacos, burritos, quesadillas, salads, enchiladas, dips, nachos, sandwiches or even with a fork!

I could literally eat this salsa chicken with everything.

You can make this recipe in either the instant pot or the crockpot. Both work just fine. Just dump in the ~2~ ingredients, set it and literally forget about it.
