Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken and a Giveaway @EclecticEveryday

Now that the school year is in full swing, it seems like I’ve got less and less time to do things around the house. With my son’s activities after school, and the baby, the day is always over before I can get things done. Plus, we’ve started a fun new family project that involves camping. I can’t wait to share that with you in the coming weeks.

So in an effort to save some time in the kitchen, I’ve been making more and more slow cooker recipes. They’re perfect for fall, and a great way to make a quick weeknight dinner that’s kid-friendly too.

For this recipe, I add chicken, corn, beans, tomatoes and Mexican spices to the slow cooker and let it cook all day. After it’s done you can serve it over rice for a quick dinner, or in a taco shell, or over tortilla chips, or just serve it by itself. Be sure to add lots of Crystal Farms Pepper Jack cheese though. That’s what really makes this dish so delicious.

    I recently made Kalua Pork (from allrecipes.com) in the slow cooker and it was a huge hit. With a few tweaks, it was a perfect party recipe.

    I really love slow cookers and use my three (!) all the time. My favorite recipe for the slow cooker is probably pulled pork – always comes out tender and delicious. But, I’m loving your Fiesta Chicken, too! Perfect family weeknight dinner.

    I love fiesta chicken, it’s so scrumptious. My kids gobble it up. This looks truly perfect, my family would demolish this so quickly. You have to love slow cookers, they are the world’s coolest appliance. Makes the life of all moms and dads so much easier. Can’t wait to check out this cheese. I’ll peek for it next time I visit the states.
