How to Make Chicken 'N' Rice (Crock Pot) Tex-Mex

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather ingredients:
  2. In crock pot, mix together all the ingredients except the chiles and garlic pepper.
  3. Cover and cook on low setting 4 to 4 1/2 hours, or until the rice is tender and the chicken is white throughout; do not overcook or the rice will be mushy.
  4. Stir in the green chiles and garlic pepper and serve at once.


    I edited this recipe to include 2 packets of taco seasoning, enchilada sauce, and season to your own preference. I kept tasting as it was cooking, and added Mexican hot chili powder, cumin, and salt. And I cut the rice from 2 cups to 1 1/2 cups..if you like thick, then use 2 cups. The rice will suck up the liquid, so you may want to add chicken broth, more water, enchilada sauce, salsa, or tomato sauce.

    After more seasoning, it was delicious!
