Slowcooker Chicken (Mexican style)

Slowcookers. are. amazing. Coming home from work to a pre-made, but still home-cooked meal makes me extremely happy. Excited even! I find it fun coming home to find out what became of all the items I threw in the crock pot (probably groggily) that morning. This recipe was a hit. It’s so simple, and it’s one of those meals that you know you’ll love. The ingredients are basic, but just right. We ate this over basmati rice the first night, and on nacho chips two days later (yes, we have nacho nights at our house. YUM!)

Slowcooker Chicken (Mexican style)


1 lb. (450 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch-wide strips*
2 Tbsp. taco seasoning mix
2 Tbsp. flour
1 each green and red pepper, chopped
1 cup frozen corn
1-1/2 cups salsa
1 cup shredded cheese

Toss chicken with seasoning and flour in slow cooker. Stir in all remaining ingredients except cheese; cover with lid. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours (or on high 3 to 4 hours). Stir  before serving. Top with cheese, sour cream, green onions Рthis is up to you!

*I didn’t cut my chicken in strips. I put the chicken into the slowcooker whole, and shredded it with two forks after it was cooked.

    Yummm! I love slowcookers – I made a big veggie chili in mine yesterday! I make a VERY similar recipe to this, except I add a can of fat free cream of mushroom soup! Just makes it creamier but I imagine it would be so good & fresh without it, too!

    Slow cooker is the best invention since microwave, seriously! It’s such a life saver for us who work 8 hrs a day :) I’m gonna try this recipe soon. I’ve been doing a lot of stews with my slow cooker, so it’s time for a change ;)

    I have to agree slow cookers are the best! I’ve just recently embraced their simplicity in creating a whole meal! I’ve also been looking on Pinterest for great meal ideas :)

    I have a slowcooker that I haven’t used since moving to Ottawa, but I have to say this recipe is making me think I’ll be pulling it out to give this a try! Looks tasty!
