Easy Slow-Cooked Creamy Mexican Chicken

This Creamy Crockpot Mexican Chicken is one of my families absolute favorite recipes!  It’s probably the easiest recipe I make, it tastes amazing, and it makes enough that we usually can enjoy it for a second meal too.  The only bad thing is that it isn’t exactly the most beautiful dish you’ve ever seen.  But hey, top it with avocado, fresh lime or bright green cilantro and you have a star of the table.
