Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken and a Giveaway
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Crystal Farms Cheese for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
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.
Crystal Farms has been in business since 1926 and is one of the largest cheese brands in the country. They have lots of different cheeses to choose from. You can see all the Crystal Farms Products here.
