Another great Mexican style chicken meal! Unless you’re allergic to chicken, you can never have too many of these :)

This meal can be made in the slow cooker or the oven. I actually made mine in the microwave using my Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker. Any of the above will work great.

I used an extra pinch of cayenne to give it a kick. This, of course, is optional.
