Crock Pot Tex-Mex Spiced Chicken

Sprinkle some spices, turn on the crockpot and you’re halfway there to your delicious feast! I paired the chicken with sushi rice/cauliflower rice combo, guacamole and spinach. You could make a potato dish and salad. Whatever you fancy, just remember not to stress over your next hosting event!

Crockpot Instructions: 4 hours on low and 1-2 hours on high.
