Crockpot Sriracha Salsa Chicken Sliders + $500 Contest ?

Crockpot Sriracha Salsa Chicken Sliders

The weather has been brutally hot here in the south. I didn’t think it could get any hotter until I made crockpot Sriracha salsa chicken sliders for dinner the other night! Not only were the sliders amazing, but the homemade papas fritas I made as a side were freakin’ bomb, especially with a side of Sriracha Ketchup!?

Thursday night was all about Sriracha!?

Red Gold Tomatoes has expanded their product line featuring the original Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. Some people put Sriracha on their fries, their snack mixes, their eggs and just about anything. So when Red Gold Tomatoes sent me over a box of their new products, I decided to make a simple crock pot recipe that can be eaten all year round. This is going to be great for football season, which is just around the corner. ?

Crockpot Sriracha Salsa Chicken Sliders & Homemade Papas Fritas!

LOVE crockpot recipes because they are so easy to make and take little time. My mom used to make cheesy salsa chicken when I was a kid. All she did was throw salsa, cheddar cheese and light cream into a crockpot with chicken breast. She let it cook for four hours on high, shredded the chicken, and served it with tortilla chips. This was her go-to during football season. When I saw the Sriracha salsa in my box, I immediately thought of my mom’s recipe. I wanted to do something similar, but a tad bit healthier.

I turned crockpot on high and added two chicken breasts (.8lbs) with one tablespoon of olive oil. The chicken was skinless & boneless.

I added 1 can of diced tomatoes with red chilies and 1/2 jar of Sriracha Salsa. I also added a sprinkle of garlic powder, black pepper and onion powder.

I set the crockpot to high and let the chicken cook for four hours.

I used the leftover salsa with my chips for a pre-dinner snack! I thought Sriracha in my salsa would be weird, but it was surprisingly good and had a unique flavor. It was sort of addicting. It had spicy, sweet and savory all in one. The prefect combination if you ask me. My friend refused to try it at first, but then found herself obsessed after the first bite. It’s pretttttty dang good.

I decided to make papas fritas as a side. I needed something to go with my Sriracha ketchup (which is so good on eggs by the way!)

I used my vegetable spiraler to cut the potatoes into thin slices.

I used garlic coconut oil for frying. I heated the oil on high and added the potatoes into the pan one handful at a time.

Once one side was brown, I flipped it over and let the other side cook.

These papas fritas were SO CRISPY and tasted jus tike the ones I had in Asheville. I sprinkled sea salt on top and served them with the Sriracha Ketchup.

*If you’re questions the coconut oil, don’t worry…they do NOT taste like coconut.

The Sriracha Ketchup has the perfect kick of spice and goes well with the sweet tomato flavors. You won’t find any corn syrup in this ketchup! People get so excited over the Sriracha Ketchup! Don’t forget to bring it to the tailgates with you because it’s also amazing on grilled chicken and hotdogs!

When the chicken is fully cooked, use a fork to shred the chicken!

*You could even use this as a dip if you wanted to.

Remove the chicken from the crockpot and add it to a serving bowl.

    We made this for dinner last night and it turned out great! I love how easy it was to make because I am not a chef! My husband said it was one of my best meals yet! Keep all of these delicious meals coming.

    1. YES. Oh my, I love this post because I am obsessed with Sriracha! I didn’t realize how many different products they have out there!
    2. Both! I love the combo of sweet and spicy. But if I had to choose, I’d say spicy. I live for hot sauce and peppers.
    3. Anything I could haha! I usually use Sriracha as a dip on it’s own for things like chicken, potatoes, and roasted veggies. But ketchup would be even better I’m sure.
    I recently found a Sriracha flavored mixed nuts pack at a local grocery store (called Hornbachers) and they are SO flavorful. I’m getting everyone I know addicted haha 🙂

    These look delicious for someone who loves meat and spicy foods! I might have to try this for my hubby.

    1. I’ve actually never tried Sriracha, except for a salt we have. I put that on salmon and it was quite tasty!

    2. Hmmm… I like both sweet and spicy! Have you ever tried a Mexican candy (I don’t remember what it’s called; I think there are different varieties) that has a sweet core but is covered in chili pepper?! It was actually kind of amazing. (This Vero Mango candy might have been it… )

    3. I’m not a huge ketchup person, but I think it’d be yummy on some baked potato wedges!

      Yes:) You can also make this same recipe with tofu!

      My friend puts sriracha on her salmon!

      Yes. I know what you’re talking about as well and it’s so good. They sell it at the grocery stores here.

      I LOVE KETCHUP :D…but i hate homemade ketchup.

    I’ve never heard of potato through a spiralizer! It looks really great, like hashed browns. I’m sure if you add the spiralized potatoes with a beaten egg you can create something really wonderful when you fry it. 🙂

    1. I LOVE Sriracha (I also just found out like 3 months ago it wasn’t spelled Siracha, but ya can’t win ’em all)

    2. Spicy. But really. I love when you bite into something, or have a salsa that seems sweet at first, but then a minute or so later the spice kicks in for a nice finish.

    3. Can I answer everything. I love ketchup. My Dad always jokes I like a few fries with my ketchup. But I would love them on hashbrowns I’m sure. 🙂

    Really excited to see that Sriracha Salsa exists!

    Reply to Jessie @ The Acquired Sass
    • Taralynn McNitt

      HAHAHAHA SAME! I spelled it SIRACHA for so long!

      You just described my favorite sweet and spicy feels. Love a salsa like that! You’d really like this one then.

      I’m so sad when ketchup isn’t available. I thought about bringing my own ketchup packets to places before lol

    I love hot spicy food! But I’m more of a sweets girl. I will definitely be making this. I think my husband would love it! And this will be super easy for football parties! (I also like sriracha on my eggs!)

    Yum! I love spice!! I love spicy fries and spicy rice noodles in a stir fry!

    I’ve actually never had it! I hear how great it is, but I’m not a hot sauce kinda person so I’ve never had the urge to try it!

    Sweeeeeeet all the way.

    Tough question, but I think I’d have to try something as simple as fries if I were to try Sriracha for the first time!

    P.s. I think you’re the only person that could take a picture of shredded chicken and make it look so pretty! hahaha

      I actually tried Sriracha for the first time this year! It wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be and I think it’s pretty good with food! I really like the collaboration of the tomatoes 🙂

      SWEET TOO 😉

      You should try the honey sriracha trail mix I posted because you like sweet! That is what hooked me.

      & THANK YOU! 🙂 I try. lol

        I’ve decided I’m making the trail mix for a Mardi Gras themed party this weekend!:) Do you think I should make two batches or would one be enough? There will be a lot of people!
