Southwestern Crock Pot Chicken

Southwestern Crock Pot Chicken from Kathrynseppamaki.com #realfood #glutenfree

I am completely in love with my crock pot! I absolutely love being able to throw ingredients into in, turn it on, and go on with my day. No matter what I cook, it fills my house with the most wonderful scents. And the food is absolutely divine. Here is a little recipe  for Southwestern crock pot chicken that I made tonight that has a Southwest flavor but is really simple to make. If you like things a little spicier, just add a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper to add a little fire to your meal.

This chicken is great served over rice, or as a filling for corn tortillas. Top it with a little shredded cheese and some salsa and sour cream and yum!

It is naturally gluten free when served over rice or as tacos in corn tortilla shells. You can easily make it grain free by omitting the corn and serving it over cauliflower “rice”.

 

Here is the recipe for two!
