Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken

Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken

Hi, it’s Jenn, from Eat Cake For Dinner. I’m back again and this time I am sharing a reaaaaally good dinner recipe with all of you.

 I’ve decided I should use my slow cooker more often, at least on the weekends. It’s hard for me to use it during the week, because if I started a dish before work, by the time I got home, it would be way over cooked. Maybe I should get one of those slow cookers where it automatically flips to “warm” when the cooking time is over. Does anyone have one like that? Do you like it?

 This chicken only takes a few minutes to put together and in just a few hours, you can have a terrific dinner ready for your family.

 The chicken was so tender and shredded apart beautifully. We did not skimp on the toppings. Sour cream, Cheddar cheese, cilantro, green onions and tomato made this already delicious chicken dish even better. It doesn’t get much easier than this!

  1. Slow cooker chicken like this is one of my favorites and this recipe looks delicious! I love that this is such a healthy and easy meal! Thank goodness for crock pots!!

  2. I have a 6 quart Hamilton Beach slow cooker with the automatic “warm”. I absolutely love it. I had 2 Crockpot brand slow cookers that would boil food on the “low” setting. My food was consistently overcooked. Meat was falling off the bone but all dried out. Yuck. I did some research on line and found that those slow cookers often have that problem. I got rid of them and never looked back. No, I’m not a rep, just a happy camper with a slow cooker that cooks perfectly.

  3. I have recently bought a slow cooker with a timer on it. Indispensable now. I set it to start cooking after 11.00am and I arrive home to a perfect dinner.
