I am a big fan of what the internet lovingly calls, dump crockpot recipes. Essentially they are recipes where you basically dump a bunch of ingredients in the slow cooker and walk away. No dicing, chopping, browning, or prepping. Just dump it in, walk away, and four hours later dinner is ready. It's that easy, and this Slow Cook Southwestern Chicken covered with cheese is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
Now this recipe has a common cast of ingredients in Southwestern style recipes. You will want to reach for black beans, corn, your favorite thick and chunky salsa, and chicken breasts or chicken thighs. Then it is important to season up the chicken to make sure it is really flavorful. I used a Pampered Chef Southwestern seasoning, but since that can be hard to find, you can use a store bought Southwestern spice blend of just grab some taco seasoning. Here is a homemade option. Then during the last few minutes of cooking, add the cheese until it's gooey and melted.
