Crock-Pot Tex-Mex Chicken & Meal Ideas

Crock-Pot Tex-Mex chicken for several meals recipes www.recipesforourdailybread.comDo you need an easy crock-pot shredded chicken recipe that you can use to prepare several different meals this week?  

I know life can get busy.  Most of you know I have 5 kids and their activities.  My kids range in age from 11 to 22. They are in 5 different schools.  I have 3 dogs which one has diabetes and gets insulin.  I do nightly rentals for our vacation rental property. I blog at least 5 or 6 times a week and a husband who travels.  Life gets CRAZY, but we still need to eat.  Casey, my oldest son, plays highschool football and baseball.  Even during these hectic days I try hard to have dinner ready.  We may need to eat at 3:00 or 4:00 p.m. or 10:00 or 11:00 p.m. at night, but normally I have something prepared for us to eat.  This would not be an easy task or even possible without my crock-pot.

Sunday or Monday is a great time for me to make a Crock-Pot full of this Tex-Mex chicken.  I often double this recipe.  I use this chicken to make several different meals during the week which you will see below.  If your family enjoys Mexican or Tex-Mex food, I highly recommend this chicken.  It will save you when you are in a pinch for time.

This post is a review of my Crock-Pot Tex-Mex chicken and the recipes I make using it.  The pictures take you to the recipes.

    You are so welcome! Your Blue Corn Tortillas sound really great. I truly love homemade tortillas and yours was much different. I had to feature them and hopefully make them one day.
