Since fall is quickly coming upon us, we wanted to do a simple crock-pot meal. Just place the ingredients in to the crock-pot and forget it until it is time to eat! Not only is it easy, it also scales up easily to serve anywhere from a single family to a large party, so this is perfect for those busy fall weekends.
This chicken crockpot meal has a Mexican twist to it. It is made even easier with the ability to use frozen chicken and just let it cook! The chicken ends up tender and juicy, perfect for use on tacos, nachos or in enchiladas. You can regulate your spice level and adjust the spiciness to your taste by adjusting the amounts of spices you put in and as well as choosing the type of Rotel you use!
We like to serve it on soft shell tortillas with fresh cut tomatoes, sour cream and cheese. We also top it with some fresh cut chives and a splash of hot sauce or salsa. Simple, quick and delicious, the chicken is usually a hit with our two boys as well which is always a nice bonus. This also freezes well, so you can make a big batch and save some for later. We hope you enjoy!
