Easy Tex-Mex Slow Cooker Chicken is one of my go-to meals when I do a pantry challenge. I almost always have everything I need on hand and its so easy to throw everything into the crockpot!
One of my favorite things about this is how easy it is to adjust the spice level. I often make up two batches to throw into the freezer (before or after cooking) and just label them. To spice it up a bit, you can add diced jalapeños & a little cumin.
This is a very quick meal to prepare. It only takes 10 minutes for your prep and cooks in 6 to 8 hours in the slow cooker! Start by cutting your chicken into 1 inch strips & coating with taco seasoning and flour. Place in the crockpot. Add frozen pepper & onion mix, corn, salsa, Rotel, and black beans.
