So Simple Salsa Chicken and Buffalo Chicken Soup

I've got this So Simple Salsa Chicken recipe cooking in the crock pot as I speak! It is YUMMY and it is an "Efficient Cooking" recipe that will give me extra cooked chicken meat to use later. One of our favorite recipes to use the "Fast Track" chicken meat that we will have is in Buffalo Chicken Soup. Below you will find both recipes. These recipes come from the "MONEY WISE" Simple Family Supper menu. Enjoy!!
