  1. I am always in search of a great recipe I can cook up now and put in batches to freeze for later… so many uses for this delicious looking and simple chicken recipe. Love this! Blessings…Shari

  2. Hey Diane, I love this recipe! Crockpot chicken is so moist and delicious, and your seasonings sound fabulous! I will be including this recipe in my Cinco de Mayo roundup on Friday.

  3. This Tex-Mex looks delicious can’t wait to try it with some of your other recipes. I do have a question, you said after you cook the chicken and shred it, you say to add a little liquid back to the chicken, if I’m going to freeze some of it do I also add a little liquid? Just want to make sure so I don’t mess it up. 🙂 Also the recipe for the seasoning how much does that make? May double or triple so I will have it when I need it. 🙂 :). Thanks again…

    • Joanne,

      If I had a little liquid back to it, it would depend on what I was fixing. I do like to save the broth for Chicken tortilla soup or chicken taco soup. I freeze the chicken without any liquid and use it for Nachos, Tex-Mex Casserole, and more. I have also used this chicken in a Tex-Mex salad and burritos.
      When I freeze this chicken, I add some in the bottom of a large zip lock bag and roll the bag up tight getting the air all out.

      I hope this helps. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment.

  4. Just to confirm that this would work all right with a doubled recipe? Would all of the proportions stay the same? I think if I made it, I would want more than 4 – 5 pieces.

    • Faye,

      This Tex-Mex chicken is a great time saver. I love it because you can use it for so many different meals.

      Blessings and have a Marvelous Monday!

  5. I’m so excited about these crock pot recipes. That’s all I can fit into my day with 4 little boys running around! Thank you!

    • Carol,
      Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. This Crock pot Tex Mex Chicken is not only easy but it truly has so many possibilities. I make some using this chicken at least once a week. We had Nachos this past week and last night we had a taco ring. Both of these dishes were quick and easy using this chicken. I may not have mention it but this chicken freezes well.

  6. Totally found my weakness on this one. I love tex-mex and probably my favorite types of food. We just had fajitas last night and this would have worked perfectly. I just pinned to my crock pot recipes and so going to use this one the next time I need to make chicken for one of my tex-mex recipes. Thank you so much Diane and have a wonderful weekend now!! 🙂

    • Janine,
      You are so welcome! This recipe saves me so many times. I normally always have some of this chicken on hand. We had tacos and a taco ring this past week. I usually making something Mexican at least once every week.

      I hope you have a great weekend!
