Southwestern Chicken {Slow Cooker}

May 15

Summer is finally here! Well, the summer that I like– mid 80s temperature, not super humid. If it could stay like this all summer, I’d be a happy camper. The weather will get much hotter and more humid, so until then, I will be spending most of my time outside.

Enter slow cooker! This is the perfect way for me to stay outside with dinner cooking inside! The recipe is slightly adapted from Taste of Home and packed full of protein!

    Perfect timing with this slow cooker recipe. I have a barbeque to go to with no time to fix anything. However there will be a fair amount of people there. I wasn’t going to go. But this dish would be welcomed and thus so would I be. Lol
