Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken

It’s been a while since I’ve done a food blog post! I’ve really missed it! The truth is, cooking is my therapy. Right when Brendan gets home he takes Hadleigh outside and I start cooking dinner. I listen to a podcast, pour a glass of wine and start cooking. It helps me wind down at the end of a long day with a baby. So, most of the time I don’t feel like turning into a photo shoot.

However, I felt very inspired today and decided to pull out the dusty slow cooker. I haven’t used the slow cooker since winter. I tend to forget just how easy it makes cooking dinner. Just throw it all in the pot and there you have it! This slow cooker fiesta chicken is delicious and makes for a perfect Taco Tuesday dish.

You could honestly eat this as a soup, but we like to eat it with tortillas and some cauliflower rice to keep it on the healthier side.
