Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken on Taste and Tell

I have a climber. An adventurous climber.

My two older kids were never too crazy as toddlers. But Camden is giving me a run for my money. He has figured out how to pull out the chairs on the dining room table, and he’ll climb up onto them. And sometimes, he’ll try climbing up onto the table. And he is quick. Imagine my surprise as I’m in the kitchen cooking, to turn around and see him up there. It about gave me a heart attack the first time I saw him do it, and now I have to keep an eagle’s eye on him to make sure he doesn’t climb up. The door to the kids’ bedroom has to stay closed after I found him climbing up onto Easton’s bed, and then onto the dresser.

When they tell you to childproof your house, you think outlets and cords and things that can get pushed over. I never imagined there would be so much climbing!!

So instead of being productive, much of my time is spent following my little guy around, making sure he doesn’t get into trouble. So many times, dinner has come down to something that doesn’t take much time to throw together. And this Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken definitely fits the bill. Especially since I can throw it into the slow cooker while he is taking his morning nap, and them I practically don’t have to think about it again. And I can just concentrate on keeping my son off the table!!

    Oh boy, I remember those days! My oldest would scale the fridge all the time. And now she’s a gymnast! All the that climbing was training! I can safely say I always need easy meals. This is perfect! I can get enough slow cooker recipes.

  2. Thank you! I was just staring into my pantry trying to figure out a quick meal for tonight. Mission accomplished!

    The dinner looks wonderful – now craving Tex Mex food!
    Please secure top-heavy furniture to the wall so it doesn’t tip over on your little one!

    I would have probably had a panic attack when I saw him on the table as well! Thank god for easy meals like this.

    Love a good Mexican chicken slow cooker recipe!

  8. Sounds like you have a little dare devil on your hands. Kids are so brave. I’m all about an easy meal that can be forgotten about in the slow cooker. Love this dish!

    I’m in the same boat with Christian-oh my word! He’s not so much as a climber, because he’s not walking, but into every dang thing. I barely saved my lamp from falling off our end table yesterday because he was shaking the table. Boys! But this, looks good and anything that goes into the crockpot has my stamp of approval on it.

  10. Ohhh Thank you! This is just the thing I need for tomorrow night! It looks stunning, I’m sure is perfect and tasty, and EASY. You win for the best recipe of the day. Thanks girl!

    This made me laugh as my son climbed up the kitchen drawers. But he didn’t stop there, he opened the cupboard door and climbed up the three shelves and sat himself up on the very top. I came in from hanging clothes and almost had a heart attack as he was laughing and kicking. Had to go get the ladder to retreive him and he just thought he had the greatest fun. He’s 40 now and is still a climber but confines it to mountains now.

    The recipe says to cut the chicken in bite size pieces while the pic shows shredded chicken. Come on.
