Slow Cooker Tex Mex Chicken

Way back when my (now) teenager/tween were itty bitty, I used to gather recipes from old recipe books, magazines and family members.  One time I spent hours at my aunt’s house painstakingly hand writing all of my favorite recipes from her onto little cards.  Some of those recipes are still of the of the ones I go to over and over.   Today’s recipe is from an old magazine that I’ve added altered just slightly: Slow Cooker Tex Mex Chicken.

The original recipe didn’t call for chips or sour cream.  You can omit those if you want.  I felt like it needed a crunch and that the sour cream balanced added something to it.  But it’s fine on it’s own too.

Slow Cooker Tex Mex Chicken
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch-wide strips
  • 2 Tbsp. Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 each: green and red pepper, cut into 1-inch-wide strips
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1½ cups salsa
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional- crushed tortilla chips and sour cream to top
  1. Toss chicken with seasoning and flour in slow cooker.
  2. Stir in all remaining ingredients except the shredded cheese; cover with lid.
  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
  4. Stir just before serving. Top with the shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips and dollop of sour cream.
  5. Serve over rice.

With all the running around lately, my slow cooker has saved me over and over.  I know lots of people don’t have one or don’t use theirs very much.  But the idea that I can put everything into a pot early in the morning and come back to a warm meal waiting for our starving family.. yes, please.

    I have used this recipe a couple times, but I added a chopped, medium sized onion the second time. I personally think the onion improves the meal…. but then I like onions.
