In honor of our Winter Warm-Up blog hop going live tomorrow I’ve found this amazingly yummy and easy Slow Cooker Chicken Stew with a Mexican twist. It can make a great weeknight meal for all of us busy people, so basically everyone! It’s so simple.
I suggest serving it with some chips and salsa or guacamole too. Here’s an awesome salsa recipe to try: Fresh and Zippy Salsa. So if you are a fan of stew recipes try your hand at making this fun dish.
