This Crock Pot Mexican Chicken is so easy and delicious, but the best thing about this chicken is the endless possibilities for using it.
SLOW COOKER MEXICAN CHICKEN
I use this Crock Pot Mexican Chicken for tacos, taco salad, enchiladas, tortilla soup, quesadillas, burritos, a taco ring, nachos, and more. This Crock Pot Mexican Chicken works great on a buffet where everyone can build their favorite tacos, burritos, or a taco salad. By cooking this chicken slowly in the crock pot, it will just fall apart, which is perfect for all these Mexican dishes. This Mexican Chicken is simple to make, and you can easily double it for a crowd. When the chicken is done, you can simply take two forks and shred it. It can be stored in a zip-lock freezer bag and kept in your freezer to have ready for a quick meal. The main reason I love this Crock Pot Mexican Chicken is it can be used in so many Mexican recipes. Mexican food is not only delicious but easy to prepare. You could have dinner ready in a snap. This chicken is quick to prepare in advance and has saved me many times when I had no time to prepare a meal.
One of my favorite Bible verses talks about being quick to listen. If we are quick to do anything, we need to practice being a quick listener. Over the years, it has helped me so much to remember this Bible verse when I want to be ready to give a solution. When we are quick to listen, it shows others that we do care about them. It also helps us to be able to understand the entire picture of what is happening. Jesus was all about caring for others, and He was very quick to listen. I recall the story in the Bible where everyone was accusing women of terrible things. Jesus patiently listened without saying a word. Then, without speaking, He began to write in the sand. You can read more at John 8:3-11. Our challenge everyday is to be quick listeners.
James 1:19 “You must understand this, my dear brothers. Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.”
