Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chicken

Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and that means you should absolutely indulge in a complete Mexican feast! I love an easy slow cooker recipe that involves dumping the ingredients in the pot, turning it on, and returning after several hours to a delicious and home cooked dinner. This slow cooker santa fe chicken is healthy and satisfying. You can through all of the ingredients into the slow cooker and come home from work with dinner waiting for you. Pair this with ice cold margaritas, queso, mariachis and sombreros for the perfect Mexican fiesta!
