Mexican Chicken and Rice Crock Pot


I have loved Mexican Chicken and Rice in a crock pot for as long as I can remember eating the first meal of it! Crock pot cooking has become a household thing and it isn’t going to disappear anytime soon.

When folks work or have kids to take care of and run all day long, a crock pot is the idea way to cook meals. Add a few prepared items and run all you want! Dinner is ready when you get home.

With some you may want to add a simple side dish or a few rolls or bread of some kind but the bulk of the meal is ready to eat!

Ingredients for: Mexican Chicken and Rice Crock Pot

 2 cans (10 3/4 ounces each) Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup (We use Campbell’s)

1 cup water

1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce

1 1/4 cups uncooked long grain white rice

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1 Large Red Bell Pepper (Or pepper of your choice)

Directions for: Mexican Chicken and Rice Crock Pot

  • Stir the soup, water, picante sauce and rice in a 4-quart Slow Cooker/Crock Pot. 
  • Add your chicken and turn several times to coat well.
  • Cover and cook on “LOW” for 7 to 8 hours or until the chicken is cooked
  • Remove the chicken to a cutting board and shred using a couple of forks.
  • This should be fairly easy as the chicken should be very tender. 
  • Return the chicken to the cooker and stir.

This can be topped with cheese of your choice to make it extra delicious! We love Parmesan!!

Serve with a side dish or add some Garlic Bread for a light meal,.
