I am completely in love with my crockpot! I absolutely love being able to throw ingredients into in, turn it on, and go on with my day. No matter what I cook, it fills my house with the most wonderful scents. And the food is absolutely divine. Here is a little recipe for Southwestern crockpot chicken that I made tonight that has a Southwest flavor but is really simple to make. If you like things a little spicier, just add a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper to add a little fire to your meal.

This chicken is great served over rice, or as a filling for corn tortillas. Top it with a little shredded cheese and some salsa and sour cream and yum!

It is naturally gluten-free when served over rice or as tacos in corn tortilla shells. You can easily make it grain-free by omitting the corn and serving it over cauliflower “rice”.
