Easy Tex-Mex Slow Cooker Chicken

Sharing is caring!

This 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 it's so easy to throw everything into the crockpot! Add some rice for a filling dinner the whole family will love.

One of my favorite things about this is how easy it is to adjust the spice level. I often make 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.

How to Make Tex-Mex Slow Cooker Chicken

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!

What kind of Slow Cooker do I need?

I love easy recipes like this! Only a few minutes in the kitchen in the morning & then I can have a delicious dinner that evening! This is why the slow cooker is my favorite kitchen gadget.  My go-to is this 6 qt Crock-Pot. I love the locking lid and programming options.  I use this for practically everything but have an 8 qt Hamilton Slow Cooker for when we have guests or I'm doubling larger recipes for the freezer.
