Mexican Chicken and Rice Crock Pot Recipe
The chicken and brown rice in this Mexican chicken and rice crock pot recipe cook slow and low in the rich and creamy enchilada sauce, absorbing the flavors of garlic, onion, oregano, and chile powder until the rice is soft and tender. The full flavor of fire roasted chiles and sweet onion adds to the depth of flavor in this dish, taking taste buds on a trip south of the border.
To kick the flavor up a notch, top this dish with a salty, mildly tangy cheese like queso fresco, pico de gallo, and freshly sliced avocado.
And if you have a large crock pot like ours, you can easily double the recipe for delicious leftovers the following day. Simply add an additional 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth to the recipe.
