I have made this slow cooker chicken recipe a thousand times over. It's probably my favorite Tex Mex recipe I've tried. I love that you just have to slice up the chicken and peppers and throw them into the crockpot with some of the other ingredients. It can be cooked for 6 to 8 hours or 3 to 4. You can serve it over rice, which is my favorite way to eat this particular recipe, or you can serve it in a tortilla. This recipe is courtesy of my friend, Jessica.
