This Slow-Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken is so easy to prepare and is a delicious and easy dump meal. I like being able to prepare this as an easy freeze meal. My entire family loved this one! It is so easy to make with only 6 ingredients! Just toss the chicken with the taco seasoning and add to the slow cooker.
Stir in vegetables and salsa and cover over with lid. It is a true dump and go-slow cooker recipe. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours (or on high 3 to 4 hours). Stir just before serving and top with shredded cheese. When I come home, I simply prepare rice to serve it over and we have a complete meal. You can even use the microwave rice to keep it simple.
If you want to prepare this as a freezer meal it is so easy to do! In a zip-loc bag add all ingredients except cheese. Freeze. When ready to cook thaw in the refrigerator overnight and place into the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. This is an easy slow cooker supper the entire family will enjoy.
My son said it was a great homemade version of a Tex-Mex chicken bowl from Chipotle, so I took that as a compliment. In fact, everyone enjoyed this, and I have some picky eaters. Best of all it is just as good the next day as leftovers. I hope you enjoy this Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken as much as my family did. It is sure to be a family favorite once you give it a try.
