Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken

I have a reaaaaally good dinner recipe for all of you.

I've decided I should use my slow cooker more often, at least on the weekends.   It's hard for me to use it during the week, because if I started a dish before work, by the time I got home, it would be way over cooked.  Maybe I should get one of those slow cookers where it automatically flips to "warm" when the cooking time is over.  Does anyone have one like that?  Do you like it? 

This chicken only takes a few minutes to put together and in just a few hours, you can have a terrific dinner ready for your family.    
  The chicken was so tender and shredded apart beautifully.  We did not skimp on the toppings.  Sour cream, Cheddar cheese, cilantro, green onions and tomato made this already delicious chicken dish even better.  It doesn't get much easier than this :)     

Slow Cooker Tex Mex Chicken

4 chicken breasts, frozen
2 Tbl. taco seasoning
1 green bell pepper, ribbed, seeded and chopped

chopped green onions
sour cream

diced tomatoes

Place frozen chicken breasts in bottom of slow cooker. Sprinkle with taco seasoning. Add the chopped bell pepper, corn, beans and salsa. Cover and cook on high for 3½ - 4 hours or until chicken is cooked through. Shred chicken. Serve over cooked rice and top with desired toppings.

  4. I have an all-clad crock pot that rocks! It automatically switches to warm after it is done cooking and it is so worth the money. I highly suggest it and this recipe looks so yummy!
